Transitioning from a small car to this car will take some time.

The Toyota has backup sensors, Bluetooth ability: for listening to music and utilizing your cell phone. The steering is a little loose, but might be specific to my vehicle, not across all Toyotas. Very smooth ride and set up a little high the Toyota has backup sensors, Bluetooth ability: for listening to music and utilizing your cell phone. The steering is a little loose, but might be specific to my vehicle, not across all Toyota us. Very smooth ride and sit up a little higher.

I am able to fit most large things in my car and it is the perfect tailgate car.

I had issues with the car's front shift differential earlier this year after owning the car for almost 7 years, but other than that, this car has been amazing! I have had no other issues with it at all. I plan to have it for many more years. The only thing I would change about the car is updating the Bluetooth system. It works, but it takes many more steps to connect your phone than more recently released cars.

It has four wheel drive gear shift which is separate.

I love my vehicle because it is perfect for long road trips, fetching huge purchases, and slugging through the snow. It used to drive like a truck and I did not like that. But I took it to a mechanic and he told me I had the wrong tyres on it. So I changed them and the vehicle drives like a charm now. I love my 4runner.
