CarComplaints.com Notes: Although it has a stellar record in terms of vehicle problems, initially the 4th generation (2003 - 2009) 4Runner didn't earn our top "Seal of Awesome" rating because it received poor crash test ratings for rear impacts. However it's proven to have one of the lowest driver death rates out of all vehicles (not just SUVs), so we've bumped it back up to our top award.

First issue: The brake pedal has a buzzing that occurs with every stop, it' is severe enough that it alters the brake pedal pressure. Second issue: When hitting a bump while stopping the brake pedal loses pressure. Would seem to be a concern for Toyota, they first said they haven't heard of a complaint, and then said it was normal.
