2006 Toyota 4Runner SUV SR5 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The V6 has tons of power and runs smoothly. Exterior appearance is similar to the Sequoia, but looks sportier.


Best Features

Sound system great for being stock. Rear windows roll down all the way. Liftgate that automatically latches. Fun to drive!


Worst Features

Front seats not as comfortable as I would expect. The window controls are too low and very hard to get to.

Review

I have been more than pleased with the comfortable ride provided by my 4Runner. This is by far the most comfortable ride I have experienced from any vehicle I have ever owned. The brakes are a bit nimble, but other than that the vehicle is like riding on air. There is very little noise from exterior extremities, with the exception of a heavy rain. Very little noise, and handles potholes better than I expected.


Best Features

Turning headlamps provide saftey for rounding blind curves. The heated seats are a plus for the winter months, and the climate control are a must for my wife and me. She cannot stand cold temperatures.


Worst Features

I would love to see Toyota develop hybrid engine technology for the 4Runner.

Review

I have owned three limited models and have found them to be bullet proof. Just change the oil and keep on driving. I would recommend these suvs to anyone that is looking for trouble free vehicles. Great car to drive and own.


Best Features

Everything. Just drive it. Not the best riding but it's an suv.


Worst Features

If anything, the riding even though a big improvement over the 99 model I owned.

Review

Overall very satisfied with the vehicle. It is a smooth and quiet ride on the highway, but can be uncomfortable on uneven surfaces. Suspension is tight and you can feel it. The safety items are great. Traction control and stability control are worth it. My wife complains when she dives it in rain/snow because the traction/stability control is too contolling. But she also spun my old truck in the rain one time because she just gave it more gas when the wheels spun. The 4Runner doesn't let you mess up like that.


Best Features

True SUV looks and abilities. The basic model without any options, has all the nessesary items for a comfortable vehicle.


Worst Features

The HVAC controls are complicated. Just give me knobs. The gas mile age computer over estimates millage by about 2mpg. I have a squeaking noise from the back that has been there from the beginning, can't figure it out.
