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


Overall quality of 4Runner is great. After 1K miles, gas mileage with mixed driving, mostly side roads is 19.5 to 20.2 MPG. Gas mileage on road trip, mostly turnpike, averaging 75 to 80 mph, was 19.2 MPG. Ride is smooth but has a slight truck bounce when driving over concrete washboard sections of highway. Visibility great. Hauled an interior 80" door in the cargo area. Have 72" or so clearance in cargo area after folding 2nd row seats flat.

Best Features

Electric rear hatch window a plus. Love the moon roof. Stock sound system great. Solid interior materials. Handling great. Love the wheels. Great improvement on my previous gas mileage, 6+ more mpg.

Worst Features

Step running boards need to be slightly lowered, widened, and extend out about 1". Entry can be a little awkward for people 5' 6" or shorter due to running board design and placement.
