4Runner Road Trip-ELTT Update

DSC00470My family and I went on a down and back road trip in out 4Runner that lasted a total of 800 miles. We had six people, five bicycles, a walker and enough luggage for 5 days. The Toyota handled all of the gear, but we has to put some of our things into a roof bag, because it would not all fit inside. Continue reading “4Runner Road Trip-ELTT Update”


2004 Jeep Liberty-ELTT

DSC00432The 2004 jeep liberty it a good SUV that will easily get through the harsh weather and it has held up well, over 100,000 miles. It has not needed much repair, and that is very impressive for a Chrysler product, although it has had some rust, brake troubles, and the fan only works on the highest setting. This Jeep liberty in particular is the limited edition model with heated leather seats, and a sun roof.

The Toyota 4runner in Cosmic carz Very Long Term Test is holding up well and I thought it would be good to talk about the infotainment system, [basically the iPad in the dashboard.] The Entune App Suite as they call it is not very hard to use, and has some nice features, including Sirius XM, HD radio with traffic, and weather alerts. Now in order to have them for more then the free trial you need to pay for it, but it is nice to be able to see the traffic up the road. With the Bluetooth you can stream music from your phone, use the voice recognition system, and even text back by choosing from set messages while you are driving. And that does not seem like a very good idea, but I have not heard of anybody crashing while using that system yet. Another trouble I have is you can not do certain things on the touch screen from the  driver or passenger seat, when the car is in motion, that is for safety, but can be annoying. Especially when you are being a safe passenger, and are searching up you destination when using the navigation. Now on a positive note the home setup can be customized to be very good, overall everything is well placed, easy to learn, and use.

The 4WD runner


The 2015 4runner is a great off road SUV that has a very nice interior. The 4runner for this Extreme long term test is a SR5 premium, with leather and a sunroof. Whats nice about the sunroof is it really opens up the car and gets you closer to nature, and the 4runners opening back window is very rare, and nice. When you are driving or riding in this thing you car you will quickly notice the nice interior with lots of soft touch surfaces. The SUV is very roomy and has plenty room for kids in the third row, and tall adults in the second row. Over all I an very pleased with the 4runner so far. Stay tuned to Cosmic carz for updates on the 4runner.
