2008 Toyota 4Runner Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
Great build quality, excellent ride (even with the XREAS suspension, which firms up the ride just slightly, but it handles great in the corners), good brakes, comfortable seats (I am 6 ft 1 and fit easily) - couldn't be happier. Silky smooth V8, and gas mileage after 1 week was a pleasant surprise - 20.3 combined city and highway (I drive it gently, though!). Can't wait to take it to the mountains in Arizona and find some snow!
Engine, quality interior materials (i.e., no cheap plastics anywhere), solid feeling, great view, fun to drive, its general utility, plenty of space, great ride for a truck based SUV, love the nav system, especially the back up camera (a GREAT safety feature). Rugged good looks.
Minor gripes: controls for windows and door locks are in a bit of an awkward location, but it's no big deal. Info display could use a bit of updating but it's functional and easy to read. Cupholders could use a bit of updating, as well.
