2011 Toyota 4Runner Limited 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
I did a lot of research into different SUV options and the 4Runner came out on top.
The European options such as the Land Rover, MB M-class, and BMW X-series are all great options, however in these tough economic times the cost differential simply can't be justified - initial purchase price will be $10k+ over a Japanese option and the maintenance charges are outrageous.
Since I do not anticipate going off road, I opted for the 4x2 Limited model.
Looks just as good and it is a bit cheaper.
While the truck may not be that exciting in terms of fun to drive, the reliability is the main reason I bought it.
Do some research and you'll be amazed at the statistics around the 4Runner.
Exterior and interior style, reliability.
The breaks are a bit weak.
Toyota definitely needs to beef up the breaks on the 4Runner.
