2010 Toyota 4Runner SUV Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I have had the last few 4runners now, the Limited 1997, then the amazing 2007 V8 Limited. I love the cars, performance and Toyota quality. I really didnt want to trade in my 2007 but I hit 100K so figured I would check them out, not too crazy about the new style but it is okay and thought the new higher HP V6 might be okay at 270HP, however it is NOT, it is WAY underpowered for this size vehicle. It also doesn't have the same solid feel that my previous 4runners always had that other's never had. Makes me wonder if they really changed some things here....engine just doesnt feel right.....way to slow, with the Tundra 5.7 v8 as an option this might be a great truck


Favorite Features

navigation, leather, new improved electric steering is maybe the only improvement over the last model


Suggested Improvements

Engine, Engine, Engine....way underpowered, feels like they put a corolla 4 banger in a Sequia, well i am exaggerating a little but for 44k new limited, not really And if they tweeked the v6 to get that extra HP this year it may lead to more problems down the road, my suggestion stick with the 2003-2009 generation, that V6 is great in that truck, the V8 is even better.....

Review

My 2010 4runner currently has 39k and has been flawless to me.. i bought it with 26k to avoid the high new car price and couldn't be more satisfied with it. It'll tow anything that I'll ever need to tow and carries everything i could want. The only thing I've had it in the dealer for was the TSB on the headlight replacement for when they haze up. I didn't need it done but figured I'd do it before i was out of warranty. all these things need are oil changes and routine maintenance and they should go forever! I love the new interior on the 5th generations! Bluetooth, backup cam, nice easy to use Navi all looks good on the black interior! can't forget the famous roll down back window!!!


Favorite Features

Bluetooth audio, navi, rolldown back window, pull out rear tray, 2 400W wall outlets and 3 aux outlets, huge sunroof! and my passengers favorite... reclining rear seats!


Suggested Improvements

the only improvement I'd say is to add a V8.. don't let that fool you though.. the V6 in there makes 10more horsepower than the previous generation V8

2010 Toyota 4Runner SUV SR5 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I owned a 1997 Toyota 4runner for 13 years with only one major repair in $160,000 miles. It never once stranded me. Someone hit me and totaled it. I bought a new 2010 Toyota 4runner. In the last six months it has stranded me twice and I have had 4 major repairs. The throttle body was first, then the brake switch. Next was the blue tooth system and last night the entire windshield cracked in half (stress fracture, not a rock). I just can't trust this car. It is a lemon and Toyota doesn't care. It is also very hard to see out of the back windows. The body is wider than it needs to be. My mileage is 20 mpg, which is fine. Comfort is good for sitting on the side of the road waiting.

Review

Toyota=Reliability in my experience and that is why I bought this truck. Now after 16 months and 45k here is the verdict.... Reliable..so far no major issues Comfort - little Performance - well underpowered but gets from point A to B Styling - beautiy is in the eye of the beholder..its ok for me Build quality - tinny construction, lotsa squeaks Fun to drive - Toyota? no, just FUNctional to drive Overall value - ok to me since it seems to be accomplishing the objective i set out to achieve - reliability


Favorite Features

I do like the heating element that warms the wiper blades on cold icy mornings...not as slick as the heated windshield on my range rover but neat nontheless. 4WD system is solid


Suggested Improvements

The pull out gadget in the cargo area. It rattles and squeaks, constantly oiling the tracks... Toyota WAY overthought the need and usefulness of this "rube goldberg". Keep it simple, that is their forte. No V-8 option is more about selling up to Sequoia, Land Cruiser or Lexus. Give the consumer the option and charge them for it if they want it. Tinny construction in a $40K vehicle is not acceptable. Your customer wants a solid vehicle that feels like it too. Another grand or two making it more bullet proof is not unreasonable. More seat comfort. Captains seats would be a welcome addition with leather that actually feels better than hard vinyl. Bluetooth system needs work
