After almost 5 years and 80k miles I would not give up my 4runner for any other vehicle except for a 200 series Landcruiser (which I can't bring myself to spend that kind of $ on since our 4runner does everything that the Landcruiser would do for us, just not in as much comfort). It is a reliable although thirsty daily-driver, family-hauler, trailer towing, weekend and road-trip adventure vehicle.

Are you serious? I just looked at 5 threads and I saw your useless and immature posts in every one of them and you have been on this forum for how long?

To the OP, don't worry about those that question what you post. I wasn't bothered reading your observations of the vehicle that most of us enjoy.

Some people are just unhappy. It's easy enough to skip over those posts.

Good luck with your 4Runner when/if you get one.

The Demo

I took a picture of the demo I drove yesterday to show "The Boss" (wife) since she isn't much of a car/truck person and she wasn't home when I went. She said "Cool"and wanted to talk about it when she got back. She is ok with a 4Runner.
No intention of buying this one. Just took it for a ride.

There is a reason I don't let my wife drive mine ;). There is a great forum for LCs if you google with all great info and great people to help you with anything you may need.
Can you show me a 16+ LC for the cost of a new 4R?

The least expensive LC I can see is in the mid $53k range with 45k miles. For that price you can buy a new GX.

Ignore the asshats and armchair tough guys. These forums are commonly filled with threads about experiences, installs, cool things done etc...oh and yes questions.

Yep the Runners are thirsty and mechanically "noisy" but if she runs for 250k miles+ with exceptional offroad capabilities in stock form I consider it a remarkable vehicle.

First of all you cannot compare 4Runner or GX to LC. Completely different vehicle and there is a reason why new LC has an invoice close to $80k vs. GX invoice starting around 50k and I am sure everyone know the pricing for 4runners here.

You may not find an LC right away for the price you want to pay. It takes a patience to find a deal and you may have to travel to pick one up as only 3000 of them are sold in US every year and everyone hunts for them. If you go to the LC forum you can make some good connections there and find one which will be for sale before it is for sale. There is a big cult around then and people hold on to them for a long time. Definitely you can find 16LC for low 50's as I have just traded in one for 2020. I had multiple instant offers on the forum to buy mine but because of tax savings, convenience I have traded in mine. BTW my never hit the dealer lot as someone working at the dealership bought it right away. If you don't mind an ugly face of LX definitely easier to find deals on those as at least 3x of those are sold vs. LC. Even though those are more expensive when new, they are at roughly at the same price at 3-4 years old. Definitely recommend joining LC forum and definitely don't test drive one unless you ready to buy one. There is no turning back ;)

wait you had instant offers from LC fans which were probably way more than trade in value and you took the lower trade in value for laziness? you let the piece of shit dealer make money off your LC when you were on a LC forum and could have made someones day or decade?
