2006 Toyota 4Runner Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
Traded in 1994 Honda Accord w/185K on it for first SUV. Other vehicle is 1998 van. Wanted a true SUV for the trek to a second home in the Whilte Mountains of NH v. crossover. Also, wanted something reliable similar to the Accord. Plan to keep this vehicle for 10-12 years. Alway have felt safe in this truck no matter what kind of weather, snow, rain, etc. 35k in 15 months and love this SUV. We are a family of four and it is a bit small in the passenger area, but you can load it to the top for a weekend or week's vacation. No 3rd row as it was useless. If you need a people hauler, best to opt for a bigger SUV or van.
Back up camara, nav, MP3 plug for the kids.
The front seats and for that matter all the seats could be a bit more comfortable. Make the next generation 2 inches higher wider and longer. Would like to see a functional third row seat with out the need to buy the much large Sequoia.
