What can I say about this 4runner's brother and FJ cruiser's cousin in a suit and tie. I've owned about 3 cars in the past year hoping to find the one that I'd own for a while after my last car was totaled. I finally came across this one and I think this one is a winner. I like a good highway cruiser and typically only looked for long wheelbase (used) luxury sedans. However, after being bitten by the adventurous offroading bug thanks to my friends, I caved and had to have something with offroading capability. This one popped up at a dealership as I was trading in my M5 and immediately jumped at the opportunity. The water pump was leaking (dealership replaced for me) but considering it still had the original pump and t-belt at 152k I knew this one would warn me well in advance before I need worry about being stranded on the side of the road or giving me unnecessary stress as to whether it would start in the morning. MPG is... well.... it's a V8 truck. You don't buy these and expect anything better than 16-18 mpg (What I get). Ride is comfortable as can be as expected. Off roading capabilities are extraordinary and can definitely hang with others on the trail. Haven't had a problem yet with the running boards. Might have to push it harder to scratch them. I tend to take the less daring way off road. Have 5 seats more than usually needed, but the cargo space I can't do without. You can feel the beasts weight in the corners but again, it's an truck. Probably should stop driving it like one of my old cars. One thing I do like is the torque from a stop. Again it isn't sports car fast, but oh man does it get up and go. With 152k, I'm waiting for the air suspension to bite the dust, but knowing Lexus/Toyota reliability, that will be a while I hope. Overall, I think I've found the truck I will keep for a while.
