      The issue I'm having is that it is...

      I can't believe we're on page 3 and no one has mentioned the obvious culprit!

      My thoughts are that the...

      I'd take the 4runner all day long. I prefer the design, abilities, and resale of the 4runner. Hell, it's even easy to sell off a 4runner with a blown motor for a decent amount compared to running...
