2012 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Purchased a 2012 4Runner 6 months ago. After 10K mi. the vehicle still performs as it did on day 1. The 4L engine is the largest V6 available in a mid sized SUV. Fuel mileage avgs 19-20 mpg with the best at 23 on longer road trips.
If you actually test drive this SUV you will notice a stiff ride, similar to that of a truck...that's what I like about it.
Ample storage space satisfies the needs of our family and all our stuff. Dashboard electronics work as expected and nav system got me up north without a problem.
Biggest complaint would be lack of headroom. At 6' I'm at the upper limit without hitting my head on the roof. Compared to similar SUVs out there this is a great buy.
Exterior appearance is a perfect combination of rugged road off looks with a touch of luxury urban cruiser.
Shift on the fly 4WD is smooth and allows ME to be in control of when the vehicle goes into all wheel drive mode.
2 inches of increased headroom would open up a whole new market for this vehicle.
Seat adjustment memory for 2 seperate drivers.
Clear paint protective film at front 8-10 inches as standard.
