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.

  • 5,000 miles
1-third row seat slammed down during release from hook and broke underseat cover 2-it happened once and could happen if someone unfamiliar with seat tries to lower the third row to seating position. Upon release from the overhead hook, the seat, due to its own unsupported weight, could pivot freely and fall on the operator's hand or arm, causing injury. 3-the broken part was replaced by dealer under "goodwill". the broken piece of the under seat cover is available.
