2016 Toyota 4Runner Trail 4.0L V6 petrol from North America

Summary:

Little oddities, but overall satisfying to own

Faults:

Went in for the covered 5,000 mile Toyota care service. Came out, and since I am a tall guy I had to understandably move my seat back into position. The seat while moving makes a grumbling noise and seems to skip on the tracks. Dealer will cover under warranty.

Entune system sometimes has errors like reboots.

General Comments:

Overall so far I'm happy with it. For a 6'2 me it's roomy; it had gotten really big compared to old 4Runners, way better than my Tacoma in all respects, more money though, but it's quiet, it's smooth, it's not a tire burner, but it has satisfying power.

It's comfortable, and it seems to be well screwed together; everything for an SUV seems tight. I can't say much else, no reliability complaints so far, will update as the miles tick on.

I also like that the Trail model is offered with a manual transfer case; you can shift from 2wd to 4wd hi or low while stopped or stuck. Also comes standard with a rear locker that can be engaged while stopped as well.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
