Poor Over Road Ride
By dmacri on


2012 Toyota 4Runner Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


I just purchased a New 2012 4runner Limited. I purchased the Limited over the SR5 because it was supposedly smoother riding. The vehicle pulses through the steering wheel at all speeds. I spoke to Toyota and had it back to the dealership twice. They both told me that it was a truck and that is the way it rides and I should live with it. I owned 12 new trucks before this and none rode this bad, of course none were a Toyota. I personal feel that it is th 20" wheels and tires that they put on this vehicle. They are hard riding and poor handling. I am limited to 2 tire manufacturers with these wheels so i can not even buy touring tires.

Best Features

The best thing about this vehichle is the electronics and the radio.

Worst Features

Go back to 17" tires and wheels . Put a remote button to pop up the rear door lid. Replace the plastic engine cover with Aluminum or steel. Get softer seats, they are as har as a rock.
