Irritating issues make this a 6.0

Review
This is my first Toyota, after years of Ford ownership. I'll be going back to Ford as their build quality and value for money are better. I like the fuel economy, load capacity and power, but the body styling is awful, the radio is tinny and cheap, the tires didn't last and the traction control is absolutely awful - when all four wheels are spinning (like when you're stuck in snow), the TC cuts power to the engine meaning you can't "bully" your way out of the snow. I need chains to get out of my own driveway! My Ford Escape had no problems at all in the snow. Overall this gets a 6.0 and I'll not look at Toyota again.
Favorite Features
Engine power, cargo carrying ability.
Suggested Improvements
The radio is just unbearable. The last time I had a radio this bad it was am AM set built into a 1980 Chevette. When I complained about it the dealers comment was "they used cheap speakers, so there's nothing we can do". The tires only lasted 40k, which is junk for a car this high priced.
