I agree with you as I used to have a 2006 V8 4Runner 4WD and definitely when I drove the new 2010 V6 4Runner 4X2 it has less power/torque compared to the V8 (was not even a 4X4 the 2010 4Runner I drove). Also, I called Toyota customer service and found out that the 2010 4Runner has indeed a canister with an element for oil filter change. Although the canister it might be a better oil filtration for the engine it is more complicated than a normal oil filter to change and that makes it easier for me to start looking for the 2010 Subaru Outback which I plan to purchase one in the near future.
#393 of 769 Pathfinder vs 4runner

Just joining this forum.
very interesting comments . I went through all of them because I'm really interested to buy the new 4runner. Live in Montreal,Canada and the 5th gen is not yet avail. here but should be soon . Driving SUV since many years and want to trade my 05-Pathfinder. Will be my first toyota experience . technically speaking I believe it is a good pick despite some minor irritants. My Path has almost the same HP and torque(V6) and never had problems towing my 3000pound boat however it is consuming much more than what toyota said about the 4runner. any real life experience from new owners about driving experience, torque and MPG ?
don't want to hear that you are missing the V8..it is not and will not be there ..

i purchased an sr5 a couple of weeks ago and though i havent calculated mpg so far it seems the same as my previous 06 4runner with v6. As far as torque goes, the engine feels the same as the old one. i did not have any issues with power in my previous 06. the only difference i have noticed is this one feels a little bigger than the last one when driving and in fact i believe it is a little bigger. i loved my 06 runner and so far feel the same way about my 2010. i will post mpg the next time i fill my tank...sorry i just filled it yesterday and did not record mileage.

actually there are several toyota vehicles using this oil canister , including highlander. I actually think its the same number of steps and better. Eliminates the oil pan and makes draining easier, and one less point of leakage that may happen. Not to mention less waste (no metal to throw away).

My computer is showing 19.8 and I am mostly city 70/30. And the 30 highway is rush hour in Atlanta so it's stop and go. Impressive if it's accurate.

I just received a message from a local dealership that the 2010 4Runner will be here in the Vancouver, BC area on December 12th. I'm looking forward to seeing it in person.

#401 of 769 Little Owner Feedback
Dec 04, 2009 (7:49 am)
Based on the lack of traffic on this board, I assume that the interest or satisfaction is weak. Current feedback is subjective. I too would like to see real gas milage numbers (calculated by miles driven divided by gallons), not just the computer number. There appears to be quite a few of them out there (some dealers have 5 or more), yet feedback appears lacking from the new buyers whom I would think would be excited to share their experience with their new toy.
