    Dumped a 2021 Willys with 500 miles on carvana after 5 major issues Paint bubbling on 5 hinges, engine knock they could not fix with the 2.0l, steering issues that couldn’t be fixed and an electrical shut down while driving and an e torque battery issue it was a death trap. I replaced it with a 2021 SR5P and could not be happier. It cost me $600 to do it because of this crazy market. I will never buy an FCA car again total shit.

    My ‘22 Runner replaced my ‘19 Runner which replaced a 2015 Scion XB….. I miss the stick shift and zoomi-ness of the xb sometimes but the runner is better in pretty much every other way! Even worth all the extra gas hahahah

    2020 4RNR TRDOR in place of a 2015 Acura TLX that started leaking oil at 80k. That move single handedly the aggressive driving days but that was for the best. I hope to always own a 4Runner now!

    What does FCA stand for? My daughter's been wanting a jeep for a while and I've been trying to convince her otherwise. I told her if we do get her a jeep it will be a lease. Once the lease is out, warranty will most likely also be out, it goes back.

    Supercharged 2010 Tacoma TRD Offroad 4wd. Some idiot decided not to stop for a red right turn and she was gone. As much as I disliked the truck, I miss it dearly. It took me everywhere. It was also my first new vehicle.

    Mostly bikes for me until the end of 2020. Got the wife the 4runner and i got the subie crosstrek she was driving before. Quickly found the subie to lack off road ability i needed so bought a 2021 JL 2 door. Issue after issue for a few months, i will be selling the JL, getting the wifes 4runner, and getting her a Rav4.

    You should see the issues with the rest of their lineup. From oil consumption to bad transmissions to water leaks to suspension problems. The list goes on and on. Google Jeep Compass issues. I've personally known someone who had so many issues she just traded it in with less than 60,000 miles. Engine was replaced, transmission replaced twice, & still never worked correctly. FCA quality control has gone to shit.

    My mom purchased a new 2015 Cherokee trail hawk With the 4 cyl engine, it was the biggest pos she ever Owned. I got her to look at the 4 runners and she instantly traded it in while she could get some of her money back. No problems and loves the 2019 sr5 premium. Bought new and only issue with the Toyota was the fuel pump recall.

    Sold my '69 Mach1 that I had for over 40 years. Used to like working on cars but got too old plus didn't drive it much since I have a 10 mile round trip on pot holed dirt roads to the highway and back. Only got it to the track once and it ran 6.7 sec and 101 MPH though the mufflers in the 1/8 mile

    2015 Tacoma 4WD. I couldn't afford the 5th gen 4Runner 2010-2013 trail edition, so I got this brand new for $25k. My first new vehicle and I didn't regret it. Such a reliable truck, I still miss it.

    2019 Q7 Prestige. Needed more utility and something I didn’t have to baby around when hitting the trails/mountains. No regrets but I do miss the supercharger. Now only if Magnuson would hurry up and release it for the 2020+ 4R’s!!

    My 2022 4Runner OR replaced a 2016 Tacoma OR AC MT
    I loved the Tacoma overall but I got a bit tired of having not much interior room for my dog who had to reside behind the seats. He's a German Shepherd and could barely turn around back there. Other items had to always go in the back which wasn't ideal, but I needed a vehicle that can tow my boat, an enclosed trailer, and a double SeaDoo trailer.

    After a service on it at my Toyota dealership, I saw they had a 4Runner OR in the same MGM color that someone ordered and ended up not being able to pick it up. After a test drive I was sold, and really liked it from the start. The 4Runner was much quieter and more comfortable then my Tacoma, and the dealership gave me a trade-in offer on my truck I could not refuse. Just going to miss my standard transmission but for an automatic, the 4Runner tranny works very well.

    Looks great! The Pirellis were one of my choices but I ended up with the Toyos instead.
