Yup I think Caddy called it the Northstar V8 that would drop cylinders in pairs by computer control. We have a 2000 Tundra with the 4.7 V8. It's been pretty much bullet proof. I've had to change 3 O2 sensors I did myself. I also had the timing belt and water pump changed at 90K by the dealer. Other than that - no issues - it just runs!

We also have a 2013 4Runner SR5 which also has been a great vehicle. It has been problem free. The backup cam is worthless tho! It has about 45K miles now - as being retired we don't drive as much. I'd take either vehicle on a cross country trip tomorrow with no worries. No real gear hunting but some on hills. I remember a thread where it was suggested to use S mode to combat that.

We also have a 95 Nissan pickup 4cyl and 5 speed. It has 200K miles and just keeps going on the original clutch. A 5speed these days is a pretty good security perk. Most of todays car thiefs can't drive a stick!
