Good, but could be better

ReviewI bought it used with 59963 miles on the odo for $16500. No problems so far. Replaces an 07 4Runner which was totalled in a crash. I didn't feel like spending another 30 grand on a 4Runner so I went with the cheaper Ford. This is my weekend vehicle. Mon thru Fri I use my much more economical Camry. Didn't realize it was a 4x4 til I took it home and saw the buttons on the dash, neither did the salesman, oh well. Overall, a decent family vehicle which fits nicely in my garage, but the 4Runner was lighter and got better gas mileage and overall felt a tad more refined.
Best FeaturesGreat turning radius, love the fold flat seats which come in handy for extra passengers, smooth and quiet ride, uncluttered dash layout with simple controls.
Worst FeaturesBase v6 needs an overhaul to better compete with rivals. Running boards feel flimsy and should be improved. Why no crossbars on roof rack?
