Highly overrated
By jose65 on


2013 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


in cold climate, it takes unreasonably long for the engine to get into normal operating range. (about 8 miles of driving)
the interior heater is weak even at the max and takes very long to warm up the interior.

Suspension is hard when driving over bumps and potholes, not good for the spine

running boards are useless for a taller person as they are in the way

front dives and rear moves up under hard breaking

engine is loud and sounds rough around 2500rpm

sheet metal is very thin, waves can be seen on the hood when going through car wash dryer

Best Features

visibility large cargo area large mirrors

Worst Features

Fix the heat issue. I drive different vehicles on daily basis and they take half the time of what the 4runner takes to warm up Anyone considering this vehicle, take a very long test drive on different types of roads. If you live in the cold area of the planet, make sure to test drive in winter starting from cold.
