Anyone have a SR5, 4X4, 4 Cylinder, Extra Cab, 5-Speed?
How does the 4 banger drive? Is the power enough?
I just picked mine up last monday in the same configuration except i dont have the SR5. I paid $24,400 for the truck. To me, it wasnt worth the extra $800 bucks for the chrome, back up camera and the colored fenders. I have the convenience package and it is great. I also owned a 2011 in the same configuration (but it had SR5)and I traded it in one year old with 20,000 miles and got $1600 less than I paid brand new. Through the lifetime both both trucks i have gotten roughly 21MPG around town and around 24ish on the HWY. this MPG is better than the 2010 Rav4 my wife had.
I also took my stock 2011 off roading at Rausch Creek and it handled everything that my brother in law's jeep cherokee handled. Oh yea, they hold awesome re-sale value. The dealer i bought my new one from is selling a 2011 for the same price (invoice + $500 rebate) as I paid for my brand new 2013.
Unless you plan on towing more than 3,500lbs, the four banger is the way to go (search for the "million mile thread")!
