gas mileage bad

Drives Like A Truck — Bad gas mileage. I feel like for the price the car should perform alot smoother than it does. Window seals have come loose brakes are a bit hard and seem to stick or hang up sometimes after stopping. Last toyota for me.

Beast Mode — Really enjoy driving this car, handles like a sports car. There is also plenty of cargo space in the rear even when the third row is up and functioning. A bit tricky to get into third row seating though for some

Will Never Buy Again — This is car more recall then I could handle. Dealers sucks no matter where they are I tried 4 different dealers. For sure the one in Durham, NC sucks the most. Don't buy brand new for sure it is not worth it

I Love This Suv — I like the ride, comfort, roominess and reliability. Excellent for long trips with family. Lots or cargo room. Can seat 8 people comfortably. The average mileage is around 17/gallon but the v8 engine is smooth and has tons of torque. I love it

Pros

Room for 8 adults. 4WD was great in all terrain. Stability control worked very well.

Cons

Drove like an appliance: no character

Go Off-road In Comfort. — Very big. Room for 8 adults to sit comfortably and still have room for luggage. Front seats are comfy like an arm chair. I had a great time taking it off-road. But I got bored driving it and traded it in for a Subaru STI.

Pros

I love the room.  It's very comfortable.  It can hold 8 grown people.  It also has a DVD player and Playstation for entertainment on long road trips.  

Cons

It is HORRIBLE on gas :(  There are minor glitches that occur that causes certain lights on the dash board to light up, but is nothing major.

"big Bertha" — I love my SUV and wouldn't trade it for nothing in the world. When the gas prices started going up, I seriously considered it. But thought "what will we take down to FL?" :) Besides, it's a great "soccer mom" car as I am always having to transport my kids and their friends back and forth.

Great — Love it! Has great power for all the extra weight I put in it! The seats actually move back far enough for me to fit in!!! And the seats are heated. Sometimes big girls get cold too!
