Problems with the Electrical System

When it comes to driving a new SUV, families demand the latest features and they must work well. Yet, there are lots of people airing grievances about this electrical system.

Here’s one comment from a KBB review. “Sirius radio update fees are irritating.”

Aside from unwanted fees, previous Toyota models were the subject of class-action lawsuits due to the defective electrical system. In these models, the Bluetooth connection causes echoes when talking on the phone. The problem gave new meaning to the saying, “Can you hear me now?” For now, the 4Runner is only intended for customers who want to completely disconnect from everyone they love while driving, because it’s very likely no one will hear the caller when it matters the most. What a way to “adventure.”

Problems with the Seats

Sadly, the 2022 4Runner doesn’t seem to prioritize comfort either. Many complaints are surfacing about the uncomfortable seats.

Here’s one to look at from the KBB website. “The seats are not comfortable for long road trips.”

How can anyone expect Toyota to create a well-built SUV that includes comfortable seating? The automaker doesn’t even understand the basics of a fuel system, as seen by a massive recall that occurred on previous models a couple of years ago. With 700,000 Toyota vehicles recalled because of a defective fuel pump, the service centers became filled with 4Runners and other affected models. Customers were without their SUV for months some times but were still required to pay the monthly payments. If they chose to continue driving the SUV, they were put at risk because of this dangerous defect.

With this knowledge in hand, it becomes clear why Toyota isn’t focused on creating supportive seats. The company has much bigger things going on, such as catching up after all those fuel pump replacements. It would appear that customers should just be grateful that the 2022 4Runner isn’t going to burst into flames – yet.

    2017 4 TRD Pro 4 Runner purchased new. Entune system is junk and has never worked properly. Dealer cannot fix after repeated tries. Dealer replaced the intire Entune Radio but still have the same problem in that the QUICK MESSAGE only works about 10% of the time for some calls and not at all for most other calls. It reports the following error message: ” A problem occured while sending the message. Would you like to retry?”. Retry never works. This is a Hands Free law state as well. This defect or inadequate engineering design is dangerous.
