2006 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Solid, quiet, fun! One drive and I was hooked. After driving a Mercury Mountaineer for 9 years, this truck feels like driving a sports car (and I don't even have the sport suspension). Definitely a truck but the smoothest riding and quietest truck I've even driven. Haven't heard a single rattle or squeak. Toyota quality can't be beat!
Great handling. Tail gate lifts high and out of the way but opens and closes easily. Love the opening back window. The V6 engine and 5 speed transmission are powerful and smooth. Decent gas mileage (18.5 in town).
Seats are very firm; a little more width and cusioning would be nice. Power window controls are awkward to reach. Make side air bags standard. More flexible option packages. You have to buy things you don't want to get the things you do want.
