2010 Toyota 4Runner Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
I searched a long time for a vehicle that was right for me. I didn't like most SUVs because they either had poor gas mileage or were too small. I looked at CUVs which seemed more like a minivan alternative than a utility vehicle and not really made to go off road. The 4Runner offers good mileage (I'm getting 20 mpg combined), comfort, technology - voice command, BT, Satellite radio, rear camera, USB, Nav, etc. - so it works well for my daily driving AND is built to tow, haul, go off road - so great for getaways with the family and friends.
Satellite radio, 15 speaker sound system, roll down rear window, reclining back seat, height and size. Off - road and towing capabilities.
My 8 year old could use running boards. Mudflaps would be nice too.
