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


Review

I bought 4Runner as an interim vehicle because I could not decide and I will keep this car. It is well made, drives like a dream and has room for everything. Toyota considered every detail.


Best Features

Driver's cabin has access to everything from that one spot. It is perfect for busy people.


Worst Features

I liked the old rugged exterior, personal choice.

2006 Toyota 4Runner Sport Edition 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Just bought the car. Nice ride. Avg about 20.1 (set cruise @65.00 sharp). Combined driving gets about 18.2 MPG. Computer updates the MPG every 10 sec. Very smooth. Quiet interior. The power seats are nice. Wish side airbags come standard. No body lean around the curve at 40~45 MPH. Drove thru a heavy rain storm and can feel the traction control sets in right away. A lot of room when rear seats folded down. Storage areas throughout the car make it really neat.


Best Features

VSC, traction control (you don't need a 4x4), MPG display, range display, storage area, being able to fold the rear seats down. Lot of room. V-8 gets about 21 MPG on the HWY. 18.2~18.5 combined driving. Rear pillar mirrors.


Worst Features

Make side airbags, head airbags standard like CRV.

2006 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Having a short attention span, I have been through a number of SUVs including a 02 Pathfinder, 03 Sequoia, 02 BMW X5 V8, 02 4Runner, 04 CR-V to name a few. This 06 seems to be the best mix for the price. My primary gripes are headroom on ingress, climate control knobs/buttons, and lack of dark interior option. If I could have had a scaled-down Sequoia, that would have been perfect. The V8 in this intermediate is a true luxury. I love the throttle response. Many complain that it is too responsive, but being primarily a sports car guy, it is a welcome attribute. I wanted a masculine SUV that had a livable nature and that is what I got.


Best Features

Throttle response, masculine appearance, and obvious build quality.


Worst Features

Change the climate controls to knobs to those on the Sequoia, Make the dark interior only available on the Sport Edition available on all trim levels, Increase the entry headroom slightly, Clean up the appearance of the trailer hitch (make only the receiver visible).

This is the best SUV overall. Easy and fun to drive. Great power, reliability, and build quality. Previously owned a range rover, which was just expensive crap. This vehicle has it all.

Hood scoop, LED tail lights, projector head lights, JBL stereo rocks!, v8 power, instrument gauges, comfortable seats,


Worst Features

A thicker, sportier feeling steering wheel.

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


Review

Great acceleration with the V6. You definitely have all the power you need. Handles turns at extraordinarily high speeds. The suspension is a little bumpy but much smoother than earlier models. There is a bit of outside noise factor. Great sound system. Back seat passangers are very comfortable with their own climate control and plenty of leg room. City MPG run lower than advertised but on the open highway they run much higher than advertised. Overall it is a fun safe car to drive.


Best Features

4x on the fly, the auto climate control feature and the sound system.


Worst Features

The window controls are in a very awkward position on the door panel. They are too low and very hard to get at. This needs to be redesigned.
