Quality SUV-But Has Quirks
By okmarshal on
2006 Toyota 4Runner Limited 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Have owned this vehicle for 18 mos. and overall have really enjoyed it. Have previously owned 3 Explorers, 2 Bronchos, & 1 Cherokee & this beats them all hands down. The sound of simply shutting a door tells you it's built better than the American SUVs. Gas milage is better, the ride is smoother & you just feel safer riding in it. The only drawbacks are quirky things such as; Non-lighted & oddly placed door switches, beverage holders that don't seem to fit anything, only (1)12V power outlet that goes dead when ignition is turned off, so you can't charge anything overnight, Zero foot or storage room under seats, remote that lowers back window but doesn't raise it back up??
Rides & handles great(for an SUV),solid braking(compared to Ford), stylish, quality-built, above average gas mileage for an SUV(18/21), dual- zone temp controls, leather heated seats, dual trip meters; (1)Tot. trip, (1)each fill-up, high towing capacity, JBL 6 disc CD unit, & auto headlights.
Delete low tire pressure light that stays on constantly under 40 degrees??? Change door security lock 'Beep" you can barely hear by a busy/noisy street, add coast function to cruise control, add keyless entry (Exclusive to Ford to date). Note: Not as much cargo area as Explorer(44.5 cu. ft. vs 48).
