"I adore my 4Runner. I am a former owner of 4 Ford Explorers over 15 years. When they changed the body style in 2012, it looked more like a bubble than an SUV, and I was mortified. It was smaller, and it looked as if it were a crossover, not a real SUV. I hated the grill; I hated the whole look of it. Not to mention,because my last Explorer, an Eddie Bauer loaded, had to have a new transmission right before I sold it along with $4,000 of other repairs the last 2 years I owned it, I decided to jump ship and go to one of the only real SUV truck body types left, the 4Runner. I have never been so thrilled with a vehicle in my life. It's a beautiful machine, and people just stare at it when I drive by. Also, I feel very safe and am happy to trust my children to its protection. I am as big as most other vehicles on the road, so this also makes me feel confident my family is safe. There's a steel plate on the bottom of the vehicle which is there for off road driving, which I don't do. Yet, this just further convinces me my family is in a tank, and I love that! I love my 4RUNNER! Goodbye and good riddance FORD! You can keep your wimpy Explorer and it's too small Ranger Truck transmission,for which you need a machine to change the fluid. I will be smiling as I drive my Big, Sturdy, Safe, and sooo Sharp 4 RUNNER!!!"
