"The truck is tight, no rattles and nothing loose. The ride is surprisingly smooth. It is a tall and narrow vehicle and is technologically designed to prevent it from turning over, except in extreme cases. It would look better if it were a little wider. It handles well, however when driving during wendy weather you must be careful and alert because the truck sways, I found that experience unsettleing. Toyota needs to put more upgrades on this truck. Ex: Auto headlights (my 2003 Corolla had that), push button start, a front passager seat that raises up and down, a more user friendly and larger info screen, better gas mileage, much brighter interior lighting, if something is dropped it can be very hard to find it because of poor interior ilghtling. I had to have more interior lighting added. Brakes work well, but at times they unexpectantly grab, that's unsettleing to both drivers and passengers. There's three reasons that I bought this 4Runner Trail Premium that was too expensive, #1: I researched and found it to be durable, I'm not an off road kinda guy but pot holes in city streets can cause significant damage to a vehicle #2 4 Runners have an excellent record of dependability as well as #3 an outstanding record of holding their value."
