#751 of 769 Wow! Ugly!
Apr 25, 2011 (7:05 pm)
I just saw the 2011 4Runner on the street. Wow, this thing is ugly!
Very disappointing, since I am kind of looking at a new SUV and the 4Runner was on top of my list.
Until the Prius and the first Scion, I always though of Toyota as having rather poor design, kind of being the Japanese Oldsmobile.
But the Prius and the Scion, as well as the rather over-designed FJ Cruiser made me think Toyota is getting a bit younger and more stylish.
Well, the new 4Runner is just garish It's like a GM truck without the gold logo.

Don't know. I just read an article in the June 2011 Car and Driver magazine that goes to great lengths to explain how the gov't has COMPLETELY EXPLAINED that Toyota is not at fault with SUA.
I am a subscriber, so it's probably not on the newstands yet, but check it out when it comes.

I didn't buy my 2011 Ltd for its looks but for its off road handling. However in the 5 months that I have owned it, I have had numerous compliments on its appearance. "Beauty is in the eye ........".

I also get compliments on my '08 4th gen, primarily at the boat ramp. Folks like the LED taillights, projector headlights and the lights on the running boards.

If you want a "pretty" SUV, then go ahead & buy yourself a cute little pink Ford Explorer or Jeep Cherokee & see what happens when you go off road. They will be nice & pretty and ride like a car on the road (which everyone seems to be looking for here) but will bottom out & lose alignment, get stuck & need to get towed back onto the road by a 4Runner. I have gotten many complements on my 5th Gen 4Runner, but didn't buy it for its looks.

I've have my 2011 4 Runner since December 2010. I have had many compliments on it. But I didn't buy mine for looks either. It drives great in the snow, after a record 7 snows in my area this past winter, I never slid in the snow, not even once. Also with the flooding rain this year, it handles great. It is sort of a big beast of a ride, but it makes me feel like queen of the road and there is no where I cannot go. And yes, Toyota only recommends changing the oil every 10,000. But you still have to bring it in every 5,000 for a check up and tire rotation. I call my 4 runner my 10 year plus ride. And I love the fact that it drives like a truck, if I wanted something that drove like car, I would have gotten the highlander.

my 2011 ltd with 13000km have the same hissing when step on the brake pedal and the floor vibrates when accelerate.
