2008 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


I drove two Pathfinders for a total of almost 20 years and wish I had stuck with them. While I agree with what most of the reviewers say about the SR5, I find it difficult to understand when they say it has a smooth ride. To the contrary, I find it stiff, bouncy, and very fatiguing, and nothing like the Pathfinders which were very smooth and non-fatiguing. One other gripe. The displays for the radio/CDP and the stuff below are extremely dim. I can barely read them in daylight hours and there's no way to brighten them up. Audio quality is also mediocre. I will keep it for three years or less and then trade it in when I can afford to.

Best Features

None I can think of. Perhaps it's build quality, but it's brand new so have no way of knowing what the long term outcome will be.

Worst Features

Soften up that ride and do something about the display as noted above. It is extremely dim.
