This is my third 4Runner 1996, 2004 and 2010. I think that as time goes by Toyota is not living up to the quality that I am used too. By far the 1996 was the best vehicle. I do not like the doors unlocking on the 2010 as soon as the car is in park. I drive by myself long distance and I hate the fact that the doors automatically open. Also not happy about the running boards. I am 5'2" for crying out loud it is a challenge to get into the vehicle. I won't put anything on the truck unless it is a certified Toyota part. Interior has its problems the head rest doesn't lock into place and that becomes annoying. Oh yeah one more thing the horn on the 2010 is like a horn that belongs on Tercel.
1. Bring back the running boards. 2. Keep the doors from unlocking until the key is out of the ignition. 3. Go back to the horn that was on previous models. A big truck should have a big horn.
