2013 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Storage (lack), the roof rack is 43 inches long.
Short for transporting a kayak.
Interior has no small storage areas.
A small tool box or cross lug wrench would have to be left loose in the back.
Console is one large deep box, just dump everything in there and take 15 mins to find something.
I made a second shelf with another divider.
Spare- on a steel wheel.
Either I buy a another alloy wheel or let a new tire go to waste.
Can't be put into normal rotation.
Gas mileage- 190 miles local city driving 13.6 mpg. Driving 70-75 mph 21.2 mpg. 70-75 mph mountainous roads 18.5 mpg, 60-65 mpg 22.8 mpg.
At 1k miles can't comment on quality or reliability.
Basic model is nicely equipped.
The basic model comes with a lot of useful standard equipment. Heated mirror and windhsield.
Opening window on rear hatch.
Along with all the usual power equipment.
Good ground clearance.
Put a real roof rack on.
How about the spare on an alloy wheel I can use for regular tire rotation.
Two stage console storage would be nice.
A small area right under the lid, and the usual deep storage under that.
The spoiler, which 3rd brake light and wiper, is nice, but it makes it almost impossible to stand on the rear bumper.
Maybe a grip?
The hitch is short.
I'm sure it's fine for towing, but my bike rack has poor support.
Will probably have to buy an adapter.
Used that rack 7 years on my Highlander without a problem.
