Nothing wrong with good maintenance.

This car is a rock.

I suggest Yokohama tires.

General Comments:

I use regularly this car to go in the Andes Cordillera mountain chain at altitudes above 12.000 feet.

For the remote places I drive, you expect the vehicle not to fail.

I had a previous 4Runner 2.8 without turbo. This one is far better at altitude.

All mining companies established at high altitude drive exclusively Toyota.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
