Question to suit.
Nice. Should perform!
Yup, it is what it is. I was honestly hoping I could drive the car for another 80,000 miles as it did everything I needed well enough. There really is something nice about having a car that you like, but you don't care enough about to worry about dings, dents, hail, keeping it clean etc. How I went from that end of the spectrum to the Macan... I'm not sure. For now I'm enjoying the long walks from the far side of the parking lot and vacuuming the floor matsVery nice pick up. Best of luck with it and, if it's as good as it looks, you should be in good shape.
J.D. Power & Associates in particular, Consumer Reports and Automotive News seldom make mistakes when it comes to durability, reliability and long-term quality assessments. FCA, generally, is rated very low in these and related categories for good reason. While everybody knows somebody whose Jeep (BMW, Mercedes, etc.) has never caused them a problem, the numbers don't lie and your experience is emblematic of that. Thanks for posting your experience. Given how it turned out, many would not have.
Lol, now that you point it out... yes, that is exactly what happened.So let me get this straight...you started this thread 5 years ago asking for advice. Everyone said "4Runner", and you bought a Jeep? I guess you learned that lesson the hard way. Then you traded the Jeep for a Macan a few years ago. Now you've finally come around to the 4Runner. [end rant]
Funny just read this thread... I'm probably the only person in the world cross-shopping a Lexus GX460, Toyota 4Runner TRD PRO, Porsche Mecan S, and a Toyota Land Cruiser right now.2016 Gx460. Love ours.
I'm really loving the 4R so far... More than I expected. We're actually road tripping sw CO right now so I will go into detail later. If your concerned with low and torque I would advise you to try a few low rpm first gear starts in the macan. Mine was dangerously slow below 3k in 1st (stand still or 5mph roll). It would take a legitimate two to three seconds for the turbos to spool and the car to get moving.Funny just read this thread...

Earlier today we test drove the 4Runner and felt like it was lacking the low end torque, looking at Macan S and GX460 next. With the Macan S being completely different vehicle I guess we'll need to weigh the "off-road" vs street manners, long term reliability, acceleration, gas mileage, etc trade-offs.
The LC200s are nice, but we'll most likely have to rule them out due to price range with under 40k miles - $60K+ even used.
OP, do you miss anything on the Macan S going to 4Runner TRD Pro?
