Because I am human and the negatives come to mind first, let me attack those right off the bat. First: I tow a 5x8 utility trailer often for around the house work. It gets the job done, but lacks power to tow. I had a 2011 FJ cruiser prior to and only sold it to an expanding family; I can tell you with certainty that the FJ towed better, had better off the line acceleration and shifted much smoother (FJ had the tundra transmission). Second: The radio is awful. There is no getting around it, it just stinks. Third: The gaskets around the doors tend to fall right off. This may be minor, but for a new vehicle you expect better (especially from Toyota). Fourth: Tires are awful in all types of driving other than highway. I feel insecure making an emergency evasive maneuver with an already top heavy vehicle and trip easy, poor quality tire. The Duellers have to go. There were on my FJ too. When I changed to BFG AT on the FJ, it made a world of difference. The good: KDSS!!! It takes a corner better than my wife 2016 Highlander. The highlander is much more a kid car, but with two dogs and two daughters, the 4Runner is our vacation vehicle. We tend to do a lot of beach driving and I wouldn't trust the highlander on soft sands like the I do the 4Runner. Second: The back window roles down and our lab just hangs her two front legs out and enjoys all the fumes from the exhaust that seem to recalculate. That being said, it is worth the fumes. I call the 4Runner my reliable Wrangler. Third: Like my FJ, I never fear it won't start. In college I had Tacomas, that endured hell with miles closing in on 150k. I had worse luck with Nissan and Chevy, so will probably always be a Toyota guy. Fourth: I just love it. There is no other vehicle under 50K that meets all my needs. With two adults in the front, two kids in the back seats, and two dogs in the rear, we find the beach is more fun, the trips to snowy mountains are less fearful and we can pull right up to a soccer field incline and watch the crossovers circle for hours hunting for parking. It my ultimate Dad vehicle, yet still fun toy. Sure it has flaws, but for the price and reliability what other options are there. If you are in the hunt for a 4Runner, I personally would wait for the 6th generation to arrive. The power train is due for an overhaul and hopefully you won't get a grill that always looks like it is frowning.

Not for all, Perfect for some

(Aug. 2. 2016) Sveto Djokic~Grand Junction, CO ~~ My wife and I purchased a 2015 Toyota 4Runner SR5, 4WD (13,000 miles) on July 20 , 2916. We based our decision on the superior rating (all red circles for a 2015 4Runner in Consumer Report). Several days ago my wife ran the Toyota through a car wash. To her great dismay and shock water leaked in on the driver's side and soaked the cloth just above plastic molding that covers the frame that holds the windshield in place. On close inspection from the outside we found that Toyota has a very. very, very poor gasket/molding design at the top corners of the windshield. Instead of there being one continuous gasket that encirlces the windshield and curving around the upper corners, 3 different gasket ends meet at the corner--and not snuggly-leaving a hole through which water can seep into the interior. Two other parties on our street have 4 Runners and I have looked at at the gasket design on their vehicles, and the same is true of their vehicles. One owner stated that she had not had a leak in her 2012 4Runner--yet. Jesus wept!!! This is the 21st century, not the first decade of the 20th century.This leakage is totally inexcusable. For the rave reviews, recommendations of other 4Runner owners, and the price we paid, one would expect superior design and workmanship. In my 70 years I have never seen stated in Consumer Report or any other source that when checking out a new or used vehicle it should be run through a car wash to check for leaks around the windshield, sun roof, and all other windows. Fortunately, our 4Runner is still under warranty and will be going back to dealer to have the water leakage rectified. I highly recommend that any one looking to buy a new or used vehicle take the time to run the vehicle through a car wash to check for water leakage.

Love my 2015 4 runner

This is my second 4Runner (SR5 2005 still running great after 200,000+ mile, and 2016 Limited RWD), needless to say 4Runner is the CAR, and that's it! Overall: great in every aspect.

Ok I have read a ton of reviews on the new 2016 4Runner. I had a Jeep wrangler unlimited and was looking for something comparable for the on and off road capabilities. Test drive after test drive I came to the 2016 4Runner and loved it. The off road technology and system the ride the comfort and safety features. There is a ton of storage and all kinds of nooks to store stuff as we as the back. As far as the reviews that say it is the same 4runner in a different look this is because why fix something that is not broken? Some manufactures change things every other year and they have problems after problems. The ride quality is what it is its a truck it is not a luxury car but it is not horrible IMO it rides smooth and very nice but I am coming from a Jeep but I love the ride quality. The GPS is spot on and takes a little getting use to but if it is new to you of course it will take time. Fuel economy I have been getting roughly 20MPG combined city /hwy. The resale value of the vehicle is what had doubly sold as I have seen base models that were 2-3 years older selling for just as much as new ones with 40-50k mikes on them. I have friends that have this truck that is 20 years old has over 200k miles on it and it runs just as good as when they bought it. Reviews are only opinions if you are considering this vehicle Id recommend test driving then try to talk to some people who own them as ask for the good, bad or ugly and do your homework. I personally finally founded a keeper and when its time my wife will be buying one as well.

Our second 4 Runner

If you dont live or drive in a rural or wild area, the alot of the virtues of this vehicle may be meaningless to you. I think thats why alot of the magazine reviews call it "old school" body on frame, needs more power, more gears, etc. IMHO, the 4Runner is the real deal if you need to transport moderate quantities of horse (2) dog(2) and human supplies, have to go "off road" regularly ...to pass oncoming vehicles on our country roads and pull a 3000 gvw utility trailer when needed. Cheap to own and operate. Great VALUE for the dollar. Clean it up and it looks and drives good enough to go anywhere including 1200 mile trips from PA to FL twice a year with 2 Labs in the back. Understand, I am in a bit of a downsize mode. The suburbans, 4-door duallys and gooseneck trailers are gone, but we are just a 2 horse operation now and the kids are gone. Had an interlude of X-5 BMWs' and M and GL Mercedes too. Great in many ways but overpriced and over-complicated for what I really need a vehicle to do. If you like good value and understand and appreciate good engineering and design, 4runner will work for you. If you need to keep up with the Jones's there are a ton of other choices out there.

Toyota Rocks !!

After owning several jeeps i made the switch. Yes a jeep is more offroad capable, but ride comfort an reliability issues turned me off. This 4runner is absolutely amazing. Handles great in snow, and is a great vehicle for camping. No more worries of oil leaks, overheating..Resale value is also great. After spending 40k plus on a new vehicle you shouldn't have to worry about these issues...sorry Jeep...

I've spent the last 14 years trapped in company cars: a 2000 and 2003 Dodge Caravan, and a 2007, 2009, and 2012 Ford Explorers. The Caravans were transmission eating monsters. The 2007 Explorer was fairly problematic, the 2009 was surprisingly reliable, and the 2012 was plagued with engine, transmission and brake problems - and it was the worst vehicle I've ever driven in the snow. When my company told me in late 2014 that they were eliminating company vehicles and switching to an allowance, I jumped at the chance to buy a 4Runner. I just hit 12 months and 22,000 miles in my fairly basic SR5 4Runner. The only upgrades it has are the Entune system, running boards, and the 3rd row seat. Voice recognition with Entune is worthless... I say "take me to the nearest Dunkin Donuts, "and it tries to take me to the Holiday Inn in Deluth, MN. The running boards are a necessity with younger children. The 3rd row seat is cramped but works for extra kids in a pinch. The Edmund's editors like to slam this vehicle for it's unsettled ride, a result of old-school body-on-frame construction. Some people like that type of ride. The 2012 Explorer I used to drive couldn't handle any weight in the back, sagged miserably, and as a result I was constantly high-beamed by oncoming drivers at night. The 2015 4Runner is solid, with very little sagging under a heavy load. They complain about the hyperactive, old school, five speed transmission, and suggest that adding an extra gear or two would improve fuel economy. The engine is not the fastest out there, but you don't buy a 4750 lb vehicle and expect it to take off like a race car. The current 4Runner powertrain has been around for over 10 years and has proven that it is almost bulletproof. I have a couple of friends who have 4Runners with 200,000+ miles on them, and one friend at last check had 326,000 miles and has only changed oil, brakes, and tires. The 4Runner is a tank in the snow. Last winter I got caught in a Syracuse lake effect snow storm and barreled right through a foot of standing snow in the road, blowing past Subarus and Dodge pickups buried in ditches. If you want an overgrown station wagon, go buy an Explorer. If you want a tank that can drive through a house during a blizzard in the middle of the zombie apocalypse and not skip a beat, the 4Runner is the vehicle for you. By the way, the resale value on the 4Runner is one of the highest of any vehicle on the road.

Don't be fooled it isn't what it looks like...

Having been a loyal 4-Runner owner for over 20 years I was excited to supposedly upgrade to a newer version. I enjoyed taking my old 4-Runner into the mountains. A few months ago I purchased a Trail Premium version and this car is not what it claims to be, quality or rugged. At first everything seemed fine but within 4 weeks I had started looking for another car to replace the new 4-Runner. The 2015 Trail Premium is grossly underpowered, systems don't perform as claimed and I'm reluctant to take it marginally off-road for fear it's not designed for anything more than a level dirt road if that. My 10-year old hand held Garmin is more accurate than the navigation system. The voice recognition system accurately works approximately 10-20% of the time even after taking multiple tutorials, reading the manual and taking it in to the dealership twice. Voice commands, directly from the owners manual, only work 50% of the time. The layout of the console screen is awkward and highly distracting when driving. The car has a known issue of accelerating backwards after a cold start if your foot isn't solidly on the peddle with force when placing it in reverse. I was told by a Toyota dealership "if you think yours is bad try driving a Tundra". Not the answer you would expect given Toyota recently had problems with acceleration issues. In addition, the moon roof started rattling within two weeks of purchasing the car. At first I was pleased with the gas mileage getting around 20-21 miles per gallon. Five months later I'm lucky to get between 14 and 17 mpg even on the highway and I don't have a "lead foot" and diligently watch and use the "Economy" performance bar. At times the steering wheel will start to vibrate on regular cycles and the engine will shutter in unison and without warning it just goes away. The headlights are a real safety hazard as they project a perfectly straight line in front of the car, below the line is lighted just fine and above isn't lite at all. When driving on a less than level road the line is constantly moving up and down which more often than not obstructs obstacles in front of the car in the unlighted area. Friends riding in the car have commented on the negative lighting performance. I've taken the car to the dealership three times and all three times everything mentioned above with the exception of the moon roof squeak have been found, "within performance standards". Lastly, don't lean or even breath on the car or it will scratch. While the car may be within "performance standards" it's an over priced under performing version of the former 4-Runners. If you're considering buying one, which I wouldn't recommend, I'd suggest renting one and living with it for a week...

Best mid size suv I have owned for the rught price

I have owned several SUV of this size in the past. Yes it is "truck like" for the most part as most off road capable vehicles behave. However, I around town, with daily pick up and drop off with 3 kids and 2 large dogs, this is the best choice for the price. The road handling and suspension is very impressive, firm, yet very tight but comfortable. I was very impressed scooting around the burbs with this truck. Very confident and solid feel to it. Feels a bit heavy and could maybe use another 50-75 hp in my opinion but overall much better than I expected. I use it as my second car, here in New England. The seats are also very comfortable and the best part is that the rear window is powered and slides up and down like a regular window so my dogs love it!! My only real complaint is the entertainment system such that the screen is a bit small and too many small lettering and icons all cramped together. It works well but there is a bit of a learning curve in comparison to most others I have seen. I have had for 2 months and love it! would get this over an Explorer or Pilot or GMC because it drives better and has a more solid reliable build. For low to mid 30k its well worth it.

After looking at several other models from Subaru, Chevy, and Jeep, I decided upon the new 2015 4Runner. I have had the SR5 4Runner for about a year and 16k miles. Driving in the snow and mud is no problem even with the stock 'base' model. This SUV can take you anywhere that any car can go in comfort and keep that comfort going even on the most rugged roads. User friendly controls take no time at all to become accustom to. Even after a year walking out to the truck brings a happiness that 'I actually own that'. With amazing reliability that goes with Toyota and incredible resale value, you can't beat the 4runner when looking for the universal vehicle. I recommend anyone who is considering it to go for it!

Hint: WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER TOYOTA

Yes, the vehicle is comfortable in the front seats and the ride is very quiet and smooth until you hit some bumps then watch out but after all , it IS a truck after all. About 6,000 miles in, it developed a "hum" and vibration that you hear and feel in the pedal and steering wheel when you have your foot on the accelerator that stops when you let off but they told me that all of the 4Runners do the same thing. The "tilt" steering wheel is manual, clunky and very, well, why bother! The engine is WAY under powered! It struggles at on-ramps! Why Toyota does not offer an 8 cyl I do not know! The "leather" on the seats is of VERY poor quality and absorbs any color from like jeans, belts, etc. The technology is ok but the voice activation leaves a lot to be desired! More frustrating than helpful! The exterior paint is about the thinnest on the market! Had I know about the paint, I never would have purchased the crappy thing. I got a paint chip in the real tailgate (how I don't know) but it barely has any paint covering the primer! I wish I had done my research before purchasing it. Don't try to ride with the front windows open as the design forces all the wind in your face. Open the sunroof and you get an awful rumble! 60,000 MILE UPDATE (YES, IN A YEAR AND A HALF SO KNOW I DRIVE A LOT!) The vehicle has gotten worse with miles. Here are the major issues: Front Seats - Color is coming off the leather which actually started within 6 months after purchase. ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM AND BLUETOOTH HAS MAJOR ISSUES! - It looses bluetooth connectivity for days at a time so nothing will sync up to where the bluetooth icon is even greyed out and it seems Toyota doesn't care for some reason. After this happened, I researched online and found that this same thing has been happening in several models since like 2014! At times ALL the controls on the system and the steering wheel freeze up. I have to stop the vehicle, shut it off for a minute or two then start it back up for it to work again. DO YOUR RESEARCH ONLINE BEFORE YOU EVER BUY A TOYOTA OF ANY KIND BUT SPECIFICALLY THE MODEL YOU ARE LOOKING AT PURCHASING! FUEL ECONOMY - Still sucks at average 18.8 with 10% city and 90% highway driving. ENGINE - The cylinder engine remains under powered after a long break-in period.

Replaced a 2010 Limited 4WD 4Runner last year with the 2015. 2010 was close to perfect. Never spent a penny on the vehicle. This one feels the same and it should: it is unchanged for the most part. Front seating comfortable, build quality perfect, A/C-Heat excellent, Satellite Radio works fine, good braking. We get 22-23 mpg on highway. Areas for improvement on the 2017 redesign: better navigation system, improve torque on the 270, have to get the offset crash test results up to 5 star. The current model gets only 3 stars in the offset crash. A nice tight diesel would work well in this SUV, we would buy a diesel over gasoline model, but that will wait as 4Runners seem to just keep going. Consumer Reports unfairly compared the 4Runner SR5 to Pilot top model. SR5 does not have the soft suspension so the comparison and low rating by CR is not valid. The 4Runner is a well built SUV, of sturdy feel, and unquestioned reliability. The price is quite low for such an SUV with leather seating. Bi-Xenon lighting would be a great addition, halogens are just average. 2nd Review: so far, nary a problem with this or the previous 4Runner. Technology is poor. Needs serious upgrade to dash controls and NAV system. Need to ditch the DVD NAV system and go with hard drive system. Vehicle is tightly built and performs well. We will always own a 4Runner and this one will be replaced with the newer model in a couple of years. Resale/trade on 2010 model was excellent.

No idea how this ride gets poor reviews

After much deliberating between the 4Runner, Ford Explorer, V6 Subaru Outback, and the quickly dismissed Nissan XTerra, I finally decided to jump aboard the Toyota bandwagon. I absolutely love this thing. Everything about it. Well, except a few things: I'm not a fan of the eco-drive, which cannot be disabled (if my research has proven anything). I'd rather have all six cylinders pumping 100% of the time, even at the cost of losing a few mpg. The power just feels like it lags a little bit, but then again, I did just come off a V8 Mustang... I digress. Speaking of mpg, my average mpg is very solid! From (odometer) 5,000-10,000 miles in the vehicle with approximately 10% off-roading, 50% city, 40% highway miles, I averaged 19.5 mpg - not bad for a 4x4. Another little nitpick I have is the 4x4 electronic knob - I mean, come on. If you have read any review at all on this ride, then of course you know about squirrely handling - that is on pavement. Sure it may not hug corners like a car; sure it may have more body rolling action than a Beyonce music video; and sure, I think it may be just ever-so-slightly underpowered. But let's be real, no car is perfect. This was just the ride that I felt would be most dependable, most comfortable, and have the best quality for MANY years to come. All in all, I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Personal opinion warning: The vehicle is very sharp and aggressive looking; it's main purpose may be to commute several miles to and from work during the week, but unless you take it off road, you'll never even get a glimpse of just how great it really handles or why it deserves to look so aggressively appealing. PS: The "Premium" adds the sunroof, (am I going to say it? Yes, I am) high quality leatherette upholstery, and upgraded stereo at a very reasonable price. ***UPDATE: I still love this ride, and I'm still highly satisfied with it. However, after having to (safely) dodge a few deer at night, I somewhat change my stance on the handling - and unrelated, the performance as well. The handling suffers on the highway. Period. Is it enough for me to get angry with it? Nah. During a windy storm, you just have to slow down. Toyota's goal in making this was to have the highest coefficient of drag possible - not really - but it feels that way sometimes. Despite my previous review, I do think an option for a V8 under the hood should be available. If, and BIG "if", Toyota listened to me and bestowed upon us a V8 option - I'm not talking about a crap 32-valve with 8 or 16 catalytic converters...errhm, Tundra - I would still be satisfied with the V6. Sure, more is better and I would have preferred the V8, but it's not compelling enough to make me trade-in.

What a great SUV

I drove a 14 Lexus GX460 and the rear barn door drove me crazy but I loved the KDSS suspension on it so I moved to the 15 limited 4runner for three days and switched to the 15 4runner trail edition for the KDSS. I love this SUV the interior volume of storage is huge. I can put 4 bicycles vertically without the front wheels on fork mounts no problems. I love the flat folding second row seats which make the cargo floor flat. The truck corners pretty flat on road and rides exactly like my Lexus GX 460. It does have more nose dive than the limited and GX. Brakes are grabby. I put the TRD Pro front grill and wheels on it and it is one of the best looking suvs I have bought.

Tough Decision - So Glad I Bought It!

I agonized over buying a mid-sized SUV. I looked at all the usual suspects, including the Explorer, Tuareg and Grand Cherokee. In the end, I chose the 4-Runner because of its off-road capability. I also find that it handles very well, and is very smooth, on the freeway. Don't listen to many reviews of this vehicle, as it's great. I opted for the Limited for the interior upgrades. I love the stereo system - great sounding radio and CD. The one compromise, in my opinion, was the 20-inch wheels. They are more highway-ready than off-road capable, given that they are more narrow than their 17-inch counterparts on the SR5 and Trail. So far, it's performed great, even off-road. Second review. Now with over 10,000 miles on the vehicle and considering it's now 'broken in', I had hoped to realize more MPG. I still get 18.9 to 19.00 for all-around driving. Even interstate driving doesn't positively affect the MPG. So be it. I knew this when I purchased it. It handles well, and the engine is powerful and I like the growl.

Very impressive vehicle!

I have driven 4wd vehicles (SUV and trucks) for 47 years, and this is as capable as any of them. I got it because I had been driving a 4wd F-150 for ten years and it was time for something other than a pickup. I have driven the 4Runner in all types of conditions, from highway to snow and rugged off-road, and it has done an excellent job in all. When one drives an SUV, especially one designed for off-road use, one has to understand that it will not be a car. I rarely tow a trailer, but when I do, this one has more than enough capacity to do what I need.

The 2015 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro is the best 4x4 of the year

I was first attracted to the 2015 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro because I loved it's appearance; especially in the Inferno Orange color. After driving it, I fell in love with it. Ignore the other reviews that claim it is less than enjoyable to drive on the road; that just isn't true. This truck is just awesome. It's comfortable, handles well on road AND off, and the stereo system is the best sounding stereo I have ever heard in any vehicle. The TRD suspension, shocks, wheels, tires and 1/4 inch thick skid plates underneath it make it a street legal urban tank. You will see heads turning and get lots of thumbs up from total strangers. I wanted a FUN vehicle for once in my life, and I got it!

Toyota Quality - Not Just A Catchphrase

First the obvious - it's a Toyota. If you take care of Toyota's they will run forever. My beloved 2002 4Runner Sport had 115K miles on it when I traded it in. The factory battery lasted 11 years. Original exhaust. Burned less than a cup of oil in 3k miles. No rust. You can't ask for much more than that. I decided it was time for that new car smell and traded it in on a 2015 4Runner Trail in Attitude Black Metallic. I got the KDSS suspension and the Entune Upgrade sound/media system. I have not had a chance to test out the KDSS offroad in the mountains yet, but the truck has done very well in snow (as expected) thus far.

Love my 4Runner

Living in Colorado, I needed a vehicle that would get me to work in extreme snow storms, take me to the mountains for recreation, and still be refined enough to use as a daily driver. The Toyota 4runner does this better than any other SUV out there. Ride quality with the KDSS system is outstanding, off road and on road. Dash is layed out well and very intuitive. Cabin is extremely quiet. Upgrade to NAV was comparatively cheap, and the stereo rocks! Very comfortable cloth seats, this is the first car seat I've had that has more lumbar support than I need. Price is very reasonable.
