Earlier common problem with brake calipers seizing up. Even earlier this was a common problem with previous model years of the 4th-gen 4Runner. Not an issue with the 2007s, at least not yet.

2010 4dr Sedan 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Its a Toyota, simple as that. They are built to last.
2010 4dr Sedan 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
5-speed manual FWD
I am a stickler on maintenance and was very disappointed on the driver side drive shaft seal leaking twice! I was not given any reason why this would happened but so far since the last repair it seems all is fine. I change my own oil and was able to notice the problem way before it was serious as I notice an oozing of manual transmission oil around this drive shaft. I have not been able to find this is a common problem though.
2009 2dr Hatch 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
5-speed manual FWD
I have not had a single problem with the car in the first seven months of ownership. Put gas in, change the oil and it just goes.
2008 2dr Hatch 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Other than a few minor warranty problems the car is solid.
2008 4dr Sedan 106-horsepower 1.5L I4

I have had 3 Toyotas now and all have been trouble free for over 150,000km.
2008 4dr Sedan 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
It has a good reputation. I have known many Toyotas to have well over 250,000 miles on them without so much as minor maintenance and a few small repairs.
2008 2dr Hatch 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Have owned this car for almost three years. NO need to go to the shop at all (oil changes and other routine maintenance has been done at home).
2008 2dr Hatch 106-horsepower 1.5L I4

Know others who own Toyotas and all are very happy.

Like the new body style and ride, very smooth for a truck. Gas mileage with the new 6 seems to be very good for such a large truck so far. The seating is spacious and the hvac works well for such a large seating area. The features on the limited exceed

Other than sticking calipers (common problem), the 4Runner was trouble-free for me.

This thing is over-the-top-reliable. I take it off-road, slam the under-belly on to rocks, bull it over large stones like a Hummer, pull over 10,000 lbs for drives well over 2 hours (it stinks of sulfer on the hills but...) - only in shop for oil/brakes.

I seemed to have a lemon, with many electrical problems over the 7 years. Door lock actuators broke 8 times (for 4 doors), an AC sensor forced a new compressor, I replaced the AC control panel, I replaced the AC clutch relay and had other such problems.
