When i bought it the dealers service Dept. invited me to an evening of food and information about my 4Runner and it's service.
That evening i was among around 100 new Toyota owners at their meeting, as we were chowing down on cold sandwiches chips and a warm drink, this dealers service Dept. Rep. explained we would get a free oil&filter when required, and went into how great their service was and we would always receive great service when needed.

Then right out of the blue he said Quote: Remember all us service people are on COMMISION so we have a real interest in you and your Autos.

You should have seen the look on everyone's face and the room got very quite, i don't think the guy ever noticed the reaction his words had on everyone in the room as he just kept on talking.

Right away people started getting up and walking out, i was right with them.

I never ever returned to my dealers service Dept. again and that was 2008 just changed my own oil&filter Mobil1 5/30.

This is the reason i don't trust Toyota's dealers service Dept. and stay far away from them.

I agree. My 2008 just turned 50k miles and the paint on the front bumper and hood started peeling off. It's at the shop getting all the upper surfaces sprayed.

Mine is the 2008 model year made in August, 2007 and it has the same decals on the roof rack as of today. It has close to 208,000 miles (335,000 kms here in Canada). Basically it looks the same as when I bought it in August, 2013 even I drove 132,000 kms (82,000 miles) since then. In my experience mileage is not as important as regular maintenance and care of the vehicle.

Hey Everyone, I have a 2006 Toyota 4Runner with 233k miles. It is mechanically sound except as far as I know in every way besides the rear differential. It makes noise upon acceleration and a lot more noise when decelerating. Iíve been quoted $2500-4200 and I just simply cannot afford that. I am in a real bind and I would love some advice.

My apologies for posting here I am new to forums and I am struggling to use this. I it wonít let me post in other places.

Junkyard or eBay from Junkyard would probably be the cheapest for the 3rd member. Get something low mileage (under 150kish or whatever your comfortable with) and you shouldn't have trouble with bearing wear. If you are mechanically inclined, can swap in your driveway following this writeup (not mine, but good pics) on instagram here: Instagram. If not, a shop may be willing to install the used diff. If the shop won't do it, post in a regional subforum on here or Tacomaworld and see if theres a local member you could pay to do the swap
