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.
