Just kidding... Enjoy.

Do those have a third row now?
Yes as a option on certain trims

Congrats! Somehow I'm surprised that you (or your wife) ended up with a 4runner and not a Highlander. The truck-y less common selection. I dig it.

yeah I assumed she would hate it on the test drive. She did comment later after we bought when it was riding rough on the freeway and she thought something was wrong with it

probably all part of her master plan to steal the turbo and leave you with soccer SUV duties.

As mentioned above I am pulling a FC and already planning on her wanting something different in a few years. Hopefully her third requirement is gone by then and we can get a new macan or german wagon if they still exists

Thought maybe judgement on the 4-runner was bad after thinking my Nissan sentra rental car wasn't that bad but this reviewer matches me

And yet, the 4Runner is also substantially more interesting and characterful to drive than virtually every similarly sized crossover without being hopelessly truckish.

Been questioning the 4runner purchase recently, more about the price then the vehicle(minus the JGC dicussion but that is was no go for wife).

Just got back from a road trip in Southern Utah. Was a great road trip car and did very wheel with some off-roading that I was able to do. Third row came in handy too to shuttle around my wife's family to various areas. My boys got to drive it for a bit on dirt roads Already has 10k miles on it
