On my 06, my #1 problem would have to be road noise, it is very loud in the cabin on the interstate.

#2 Would be the base rims- they started rusting pretty quickly after it was bought new

#3 The keys fall apart too easily, they tear and the buttons become inoperable, I understand Toyota fixed this problem in later years.

#4 I wish I had leather seats, the cloth ones get dirty and are impossible to clean, mine have some mud stains that make it look like I didn't get to the bathroom on time.

I know I have a couple more, but I can't think of them at this moment.

Yea..I went with an iphone 6 for a weekend. First thing i noticed was how much better bluetooth sounded..
I couldn't handle lack of everything else the iphone did not have, so i traded back to a note4 ..
Again, bluetooth went back to just ok with android in the rav..but sounds better in the truck
I guess its hardware with the vehicle's the way they read the phone?

I don't think I'm getting the advertised MPGs, I'm closer to 22 or 24 MPGs or so. I do cruise over 75 MPH though... I should probably chill with that, lol.

Not really a complaint, but I wish I that JBL sound system because this stock system sounds muddled or is not loud enough on some of my songs (using iPhone 4s).

I remember my BIG complaint now. Toyota puts the catalytic converter in the muffler, so when the muffler goes, you pay 1200 dollars to replace it! Happened to me a year and a half ago. Really a smart idea on their part.

The 4.4 is fast, it feels damn fast, very sharp and much less drunkard (gas) than the rest of its generation. But sadly, I'm not happy with the whole thing after test driving it. It feels, too exclusive. Whereas you cannot do more than what you could on the 4.1 & 4.2. Sure it's fast but It's dull and too proper, at least to me. And it looks like a Hyundai/Kia/Montero/Pajero Sport from the back.


WHAT IS THIS?

Well,not "IN" the muffler exactly,but the cat IS part of the same weldment as the stock muffler. A good exhaust shop can cut the pipe between the cat and the muffler and install an aftermarket muffler. I agree that it was short-sighted of Toyota to make this a one piece assembly. Whatever they are saving in assembly line cost is eaten up with replacing perfectly good cat converters under emissions warranty because of a rusty muffler.

After having my 2013 Limited for a year, in no particular order:

* JBL sub installation that prevents cargo net hammock from being used vertically

* front passenger seat doesn't fold flat - my older and smaller hatchback was more useful than this UV

* dash and arm rest squeaks

* stiff rear suspension

* paint scratches easily

* driver seat is somewhat uncomfortable on longer trips

Lack of a six speed manual. Didn't think I would miss it as much. Next car will have one.

No Homelink

No way to increase the brightness of the clock display during the day if the parking lights or headlights are on. My other cars allowed me. This one is impossible to see in the daylight if lights other than DRL are on.(Small annoyance)

Too short OEM front mud guards to prevent winter slush from splashing up under the inside bottom of the front doors. With the door sill design longer front mud flaps would prevent the spray from the front tires from getting on the lower inside part of the front doors.
