2012 4dr SUV 261-horsepower 4.0L V6
6-speed manual 4WD, part-time w/low range
In spite of the fact that this car normally receives a reliability rating of 5/10, I have found that if you perform the required preventive maintenance, the car will provide outstanding reliability. full 2012 Nissan Xterra review
2012 4dr SUV 261-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range
Bulletproof. Drive and enjoy. Wear and tear is the only things you will care about. Trust me, I owned 4 of them, and they all are still in the family. This vehicle withstands a real abuse. If you do minimal maintenance - it will serve you for 10 years at least. full 2012 Nissan Xterra review
 

TrueDelta Reviews the Reliability And Durability of the 2015 Toyota 4Runner

2015 Toyota 4Runner Reliability And Durability: Pros
YearComment
2014 The current Jeep Grand Cherokee is a very impressive vehicle. As I'll discuss in more detail below, it does many things better than the 4Runner. So why didn't my friend buy the Jeep? Largely because he did not trust it would be reliable. It's record has been so-so in recent years, and the 2014 updates included some glitches. Conversely, the Toyota 4Runner has consistently been among the most reliable models in TrueDelta's car reliability survey. full 2014 Toyota 4Runner review
