      I love my 2014 4Runner Limited with 110,000 miles, not getting more than 16.7 miles per gallon. Recently it’s been in for service every 2000 miles due to the errors “engine light on and trac off". This is the 4th time this has occurred. Steps have included: replaced spark plugs, fuel injection cleaning, changing gas to premium. Very frustrating. Dealer doesn’t know what the problem is.

      My rear tailgate glass on my 2006 4Runner SR5 4X2 shattered randomly when using the defroster on 2/11/19. The Toyota warranty covering this faulty glass had been extended to 4/30/18, so Toyota was aware of a defect. I called Toyota on 2/12/19. Got a case number. I followed up on 2/13/19 and Toyota advised me they will NOT assist in this matter. The dealership quoted me $825 price (w/ tax approx) to fix window. My issue is this: if there's a defect in a part, it should be covered indefinitely.

        I love my 4Runner. It is a very good vehicle, It's a 2004 113000 miles, But I am having severe issues with - cracking. Called Toyota. They said they had a recall on it but it is now over and I cannot get it fixed. I was unaware of this because I never received a recall letter. I'm just wondering how many people out there have the same problem. I think it's terrible of Toyota to have a time limit on a recall.

        My 2018 Toyota 4 Runner doesn't even have 5,000 miles on it yet and the driver seat cloth is already showing extreme wear. I am 5 ft 2, 100 lb woman who works in an office. My clothing is normal and don't have anything unusual on me that would cause such wear. When I asked about the warranty (Toyota) I was told it was my fault, I used something abrasive on it. The cloth on the driver's seat right in the middle appears to be balled up or snagged as if I scrubbed it hard with a rough brush and of course I did no such thing. The type of material used is either cheap, defective or a type that is inappropriate for the use of car upholstery.

        2016 Toyota 4Runner with 35k Miles. On August 7th we took our Toyota 4Runner to Auto Nation Toyota of Irvine to address noise coming from the undercarriage. Automation of Irvine diagnose and repaired the vehicle the next day. Auto Nation of Irvine said that a front left brake backing plate was bent. They bent the backing plate back to correct the position. On August 17th my girlfriend and I were driving on the 5 North passing North Bakersfield. From there, we felt a violent shake and the car lost control. We pulled over and found that the under carriage of the car was on fire and that the rear drive shaft had detached. We then had the vehicle towed to North Bakersfield Toyota. We then filed a claim with Corporate Toyota's claim department.

        On October 23rd we finally received a letter from Corporate Toyota claims department stating that their parts were not defective and that they are not liable for the damage. They do not know how the rear drive shaft had detached. We have not had a car for several months. We were devout Toyota customers. We have always touted Toyota for reliability; but after this incident we feel to warn others about our experience. With Toyota's history of denying responsibility from their Prius to our incident. We clearly will no longer have any association with Toyota.

        I went to my mechanic today and they saw that my frame is rusting even where my shocks are mounted. They told me that they could do it for $600.00 which I think is high. I also think Toyota should fix it for me.

        My 4-Runner has been a great truck. I chose the SUV with my ex-husband. I knew Toyota had a great reputation so that's why I chose a Toyota. At the time I bought it, I thought I might have a family, so I bought a large vehicle. I didn't have a family, but the size had come in handy anyway. The car hasn't ever left me stranded. I've kept it well maintained and the car now has over 180,000 miles and still runs well. It's been helpful to have a large vehicle for moving things. It's awesome for road trips. However I would like to have leather, heated seats. I would also like to have a car that didn't have a dent on every side and rust on one side. Also, it's old. It doesn't have any technology. I would add on screen reverse, touch pedal hatchback, GPS, a decent stereo, and keyless entry.

        I heard the Toyota 4Runner was the most reliable vehicle and so far it has turned out to be true. It's been a great car so far. And it rides very smoothly. I feel safe and content in this car. It does not have the same temperature control like my old car did which I loved. It does not automatically lock my doors when I'm in it too. It doesn't have the fancy car diagnosis like how my last car did but I haven't had the problems with this car that I had with my old car. And haven't had to spend hundreds on it like I did my last car.

        My Toyota 4-Runner has been my favorite car out of all the ones I've ever owned. And I know that Toyotas are apparently supposed to last for a very long time so that's comforting. I like that the 4-Runner has four wheel drive, different radio connection options, and the horn is pretty cool too. Although I'd like the color of my car to be darker. And I don't like that I have to hit the lock button twice on the key bob in order to lock the car. Then when I go too fast, a sulfur smell emits from the exhaust. Otherwise, the car's great and I would recommend it.

        I love my vehicle. This vehicle was very thoughtfully designed. It's smooth on the road, does well in all weather and is the prefect vehicle if you enjoy the outdoors and have dogs. I also love the space inside, including the two extra fold out seats in the very back. The electrical outlet is so incredibly convenient, as are the USB ports. It syncs to my phone. You can roll down the rear window and the back seats fold down very easily. And I love all of the controls on the steering wheel.

        But would like to be able to access all of the car's Entune features and apps, I would need to make expensive upgrades, including changing the fin on the top of the vehicle. The dash also doesn't have a good spot for a phone holder, but I could explore other options, like the ones that attach to the windshield. The back windshield wiper doesn't clear off a large portion of the window and because of the fin over the back window, the top of the window doesn't get cleaned when you run it through an automatic car wash.
