2011 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
June 15th, 2012 Toyota released TSB-0089-12 that affects 2010-2012 4Runners and calls for replacement of full transmission. www.toyota-4runner.org/5th-gen-t4rs/89301-has-anyone-noticed-10.html I know I'm covered for 5yr/60k miles power train but I traded it in for $28k (Paid $34k new) after 3 years of ownership for a 2014 Subaru Forester 2.0XT Touring.
-Land Cruiser 150 platform ($20k cheaper than GX460) Great value (only lost $6k in 3 years)
-2011 was 100% from Japan -2012 was 90%
-Can roll down the trunk window for my dog
-17mpg worst 23mpg best 20mpg avg lifetime
-Completely fold flat 2nd and 3rd row seats
-Bright stock headlights and rectangle DRL
-9.6 ground clearance with hill decent control
-Transmission slips ever since day 1 (It's more noticeable at slow speeds with ECO mode on)
-Unstable on highway (Trial Limited suspension is much better than SR5.
-Huge nose dive during braking (Feels soft and unresponsive)
-2006 to 2009 Projector headlights was deleted on 2010 to 2013. 2014 4Runner brought it back.
-1GR-FE engine outputs 254hp on regular gas not 270hp with 91 octane.
-Impossible to clean rear spoiler window
-3rd row seats can only fit little kids
-No headroom for me 5'10 especially with sunroof
-Useless $600 running board it came with the car
-Embarrassing stock antenna sticks out from hood
-5 speed auto really needs 6th gear for mpg
2 more negatives to add: turning radius is not great and the gas cap does not have a lock switch (might matter for some people)
I've also owned 2003 LX470 and 2007 FJ Cruiser and IMHO the handling is far superior than the 5th generation SR5 4Runner.
