Toyota 4runner / best brand on the market for reliability for years to come.

The Toyota brand is one that my family and I choose because it is a reliable brand. The comfortability of this vehicle is something that I love not only because I know that I can rely and depend on always being on the road and never breaking down, but because it is a comfortable ride with great features inside and out. My Toyota has the ability to adjust seating on both the driver side and passenger side that allows you to easily move the seats to support your back and legs. This helps on long road trips. I love that have the capability of listening to the radio, a CD, or to stream my music via Bluetooth. And one of my favorite features of my vehicle is that I can speak on the phone hands free via my Bluetooth capabilities. This is not the first Toyota I have owned and I know that it is one of the most reliable brands that will remain in my family for decades to come.

Sadly, there is no button to automatically close the back hatch.

I love my 4Runner! It is reliable, not too bad on gas and can tow our small fishing boat! We also had the rack put on top so we could put our kayak on top, too! My only gripe about my particular car is that the lighter/charger doesn't work so I can never charge my phone in the car. I had it looked at early on and they said it worked fine for them which I no longer believe, but oh well! As for the 4Runners in general, I just wish there was a button to close the back hatch, it's pretty heavy and hard for people to close.

Has many good things but some should be changed.

The seat warmers are really nice and help keep me warm in the winter time but the car's brakes squeak a lot to where it gets annoying every time we try to back up, but that can always be fixed. Also the back row does not have charger ports so if you want to charge your phone you can to bring it to the front which gets annoying because I always have friends with me who want to use their phone but it is about to die so they can not use their phone while charging it.
