2007 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
2700 miles and looking forward to trading it in. Good looking basic transportation. Unable to get side curtain airbags, daytime running lights, sunroof, 4x4, 3rd row seats in CA. Told these safety features werenít necessary. In CO could get side curtain airbags,day time running lights,3rd row seats w/o sunroof. Opted for sunroof, 3rd row only good for midgets. 10 year old Discovery handled better in tight fast paced LA traffic. 4Runner feels unsure and at times throws a few surprises driving at higher speeds. I never know how the vehicle is going to react to various road condition at freeway speeds. This is the first vehicle Iíve had this problem with.
I look forward to the trouble free maintenance and I enjoy the improved gas mileage over my Land Rover. Like iPod jack and tire monitor. 4Runner accelerates well but red lines if youíre not careful.
Better handling and option combination choices in various territory. Dislike self adjusting recirculation button. Often find myself choking on some vehicles exhaust only to look down and see the recirculation button has turned itself off.
