Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: the 4wd is second to none. Unbelievable.
Cons: The lack of headroomThe ONLY complaint is that no one taller than 6'0' could possibly be comfortable driving this car. 2' of headroom are gone due to the sunroof, making it a just-barely fit for 6'0'.
Toyota is supposed to be great but it is not.
Pros: Sliding rear glass.
Cons: Teapot sound and the morning brake squeal.From day one the brakes have squealed in the mornings and the vehicle sounds like a teapot going off at 60 to 70 mph. Took to the dealership for both problems a few times and they can't duplicate the teapot sound so they don't fix. They say all brakes do that. My Nissan, Dodge and Ford do not do the brake sound. Very disappointed with Toyota.
Pros: space in the trunk
Cons: none love all the toyota cars
Advice: noneGreat car
Pros: The looks!
Cons: Cloth interior - getting leather put in next week
Advice: Don't fall in love with the local dealer - make them compete!!Tested the Avalon, Camry, and the 4Runner and just couldn't get out of the 4Runner - it just kept on calling my name.
