Toyota & Consumer Reports


Recommended Posts

Well, it sounds like the folks at Consumer Reports have heard about that throttle lag that runs throughout the Toyota family, and the dreaded driveshaft clunk in the GX470/4.7 4Runner, AWD GS and Tucoma. As they have, for the first time, dropped the Camary, Tucoma and GS AWD from their top 10 picks, for these two problems. I heard this yesterday on the news, and when they said "Camry dropped due to transmission problems, Tucoma dropped due to drive line problem, along with the GS AWD", I knew it was that delayed electronic throttle, and that dang slider yolk on the driveshaft of the V8, which I think all with the V8 have AWD. I know my 4Runner with the V8 is AWD, and it has the clunk as reported by the GX470 owners.....

Hmm.... where is that post from months ago about it being not all roses as #1....??
