2008 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Have had my runner for a couple weeks. Came out of a ford supercrew which i loved, but needed something with better gas mileage. I get off road some and pull a utility trailer with my atv or mower on it. I did not want one of the car based SUVs and the 4runner seemed like the perfect fit for how I use a vehicle. I miss the room from my truck but am tickled with the gas mileage improvement and the the sr5 drives and handles great on and off road. The ride is quiet and smooth while still being a true truck based vehicle. I am quite happy. The vehicle I got happened to have a moon roof. A feature I would never have ordered, but really enjoy it.
Gas mileage (22-25 hwy), looks, 4wd performance, ride, quietness.
Owners manual instructions on use of 4x4, center differential, LSD, and the rest of the drivetrain that involves traction. Ended up back at the dealer with a mechanic that has one and getting full explanation and he had trouble with some of it.
