Traded in my 2011 Toyota Tundra Crewmax Limited for the 2013 Toyota 4Runner.
So, I'll get into my "complaints" first.
Initially, the smaller engine (4.0L vs. the Tundra's 5.7L) and subsequent "lack of power" bothered me quite a bit. After driving the 4Runner on the freeway, around town, etc. it really does perform well and the "lack of power" isn't an issue as the 4.0 turns out, has quite a bit of power itself.
That is seriously my only complaint...I am loving the 4Runner. Here's why: Tons of space inside for me and my dogs and all of our stuff. Good gas mileage. Comfortable ride. Great looking, very dependable vehicle.
Never looked back!

I considered many cars before my new Toyota 4Runner...the Ford Explorer, Ford Flex, Dodge Durango, Infiniti JX35, Nissan Pathfinder, Nissan Armada, Honda Pilot, and the Toyota Sienna. When I do my research on buying a new car, I always take my time so I'm making a well informed decision. After test driving these vehicles, I started to make my process of elimination. I made sure I stayed within my budget, listed the pros and cons of each vehicle, and even rated the sales consultant! After I test drove the 4Runner, I loved it! It had more "pros" on my list than "cons." My past cars have been a Honda Accord, Hyundai Santa Fe, Ford Explorer, and a Nissan Quest. By far, my new Toyota 4Runner is my favorite! I love the smooth ride, the interior, the fancy gadgets and the style! My husband who is 6'4" says that this is the most comfortable he has felt riding in any of my previous cars. My kids say the love sitting up high in their seats and can "finally see out the window." Overall, the Toyota 4Runner ranks very well. If you do the research on this vehicle, you will see why! It's the best vehicle I've owned!
