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

2015 4dr SUV 176-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Doesn't everyone who buys a Toyota expect it to just run? With 7500 miles on the odometer, I can say I've got no issues nor do I expect any. No weird noises, nothing to take back to the dealer for, it all just works, and has been since I got it. That is a reassuring start, but something I've come to take for granted with the Toyota products. full 2015 Toyota RAV4 review
