You may have seen my previous posting complaining about the same issue.
I live in Canada and this is NOT an inexpensive truck. The MSP for trail on the road is over 50k. Now really how much does it cost to put in the 6 speed tranny? I beat it also gets a better fuel mileage which would have been good for their sales. You may have also noticed that 2010 4Runner fender glares are not fitted with rubber to the body (unlike all other older models). This allows for collection of salt in the winter, not to mention looking cheap.

Tundra and Sequoia are both in the recall list. 4Runner is free of trouble?

I predict sometime this year, the 4th generation 4Runner will be recalled for the same part retrofit.
They just want to get the ones with "problems" done first.
The number of 4Runners sold compared to their "volume movers" such as Camrys and Corollas, are very, very small.

Yep, no 4Runner, no Land Cruiser on the recall list thus far. Can't say why exactly, but could be engineered differently, and there's been no incidents reported. Might be coincidence, but aren't these two models made exclusively in Japan?

Is it that the models made in Japan had no issues because they used the japanese denso part and not the usa built part???

Yes, that is my understanding and as I believe the 4Runner is still 100% made in Japan.
#602 of 769 2010 4Runner Bluetooth
Feb 05, 2010 (2:11 pm)
Quick question... I have a 2010 4Runner limited with Bluetooth and when I use it I have to literally yell into the microphone in the headliner for people to hear me. It is almost impossible for me to carry on a conversation.
I was wondering if anyone else is experienceing this? The service dept looked at it and said there is nothing wrong with the operation of the bluetooth. Doesn"t make sense to me.

Have you tried adjusting the volume using the steering wheel volume button - this does the trick on my Lexus.

4Runner Trail can be optioned with the best of the off-road tech - KDSS, but the 4.6L V-8, a Full-Time 4WD transfer case, and the 6-speed transmission are definitely missed.
