    6'1" here. Head was brushing the moonroof. Honestly my biggest issue with the 4 Runner and the Tacoma-they should have been made a couple inches taller and longer.. My driving position makes it uncomfortable for a decent sized adult to sit behind me.

    Yep, the seat adjustability on 4 runners/tacomas I've been in were almost pointless. Throw that in with the legs forward driving position, was a no go

    I did have the seat bottomed out. I do believe there is some truth to torso vs legs and the fact that after a spinal fusion I dont like being leaned back to fit. But I was worried that even if it was close, if I started bouncing around I would make contact which would seem like a bad idea. I went with the Tundra TRD Pro. But I find that I just dont use the bed anymore so I would prefer an SUV.

    I've got KDSS on my 2016 Trail Edition Premium...haven't noticed any lean (yet). I love the 4Runner. It's the perfect vehicle for our environment.

    (Gravel, mud, some snow, and often steep inclines.)
    ...and just like that, I woke up one morning and the America I knew and loved was gone.

    I drive a 2011 4x4 Tacoma Quadcab with the 4.0 liter engine. Plenty of power, fits my wife and I well, nearly 190,000 miles with few problems.

    How is the power on the new 4 Runner compared to what Iím used to?

    Weíre seriously considering one for my wife to drive later this year.

    My sister had a Camry that was out of warranty. It had transmissions problems, which her local transmission shop fixed. Years later, she found out that there was a "secret warranty" of the transmission and that if she had taken it into Toyota, they'd have fixed it for free.

    She hates Toyota with the heat of a thousand suns.
    Everything exploded and the blood began to spill.

    Always best to take it to a dealer for an estimate. I stopped using a dealer when the warranty on my Chev ran out but I usually gave them a crack at an estimate before I took it to a local mechanic. The difference was usually about 40% less for drive train repair.

    I have a 2019 4R that I purchased right before the 2020 models hit the dealers. The acceleration isn't great, seems to lag a bit when I punch it, but for 95% of my driving it's just fine. 21-22 mpg.

    4Runners are fantastic. If Toyota would ever wake up and put their 5.7L V8 in them, that'd put a real hurt on Tahoe, Durango, and Explorer sales.

    I had a 2004 V8 4wd that I sold before my last deployment and I miss it terribly. I expected to replace it when I got back, instead I came back to prices on those V8 4th gens going nuts.
    My wife really wants an Army Green 5th gen.

    She should hate that local transmission shop for being snakes and taking her money instead of telling her about the recall. Virtually every auto shop like that will have access to AllData or a similar database that not only provides all the service manuals for most makes/models but tracks TSB's, recalls, etc on all the same. In fact, it's quite possible they just took it to the dealer, had the dealer install a free transmission, and delivered it to her and gave her the bill.

    About the only regret I have with my 4Runner is not getting the V8. The V6 is fine but I do notice it more sluggish at high altitudes. If my V6 ever blows its head gasket I will be tempted to do a swap if feasible.
