2010 Toyota 4Runner Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


I was looking for a body-on-frame SUV with excellent reliability and good mileage. So far, so good! The ride quality is great for a truck and road/wind noise is low. I find the driver comfort high, but suspect that it could be a challenge for those over 6'2". Vehicle handling is very good for a tall, truck-based platform. Worst feature - the iPod control is a joke. Scrolling through songs/artists is done in chunks, each set taking about 2 seconds! Further, it goes back to the "A" position after you start a song. I quickly abandoned that route and use the iPod through the AUX input. The Toyota software developers should be ashamed of themselves.

Best Features

Real truck utility, ease of towing, driving position, overall fit-and-finish

Worst Features

Radically better mileage through the use of a diesel (mid-20's would be *easy*), same controls for front passenger seat as driver (inexcusable at $40K), ditch the rear slide-out w/o making me buy a 3rd-row seat, radically better head unit software
