I believe they use to have a problem with the ONSTAR on these vehicles. I'd start with a parasitic load test to see which circuit drains the battery. Zee

There is a problem in the SRS system which requires a computer diagnostic. I suggest to find a good VW specialty shop, they should have the equipment to do this. It could be a simple thing as a micro switch in the belt latch... Zee

Probably a bad contact on the switch. That's what I'd check first. Zee
Problem Reported: Internal Transfer Case Problem on the 4WD models
February 27, 2011, 05:22 PM

An abnormal noise may develop from the transfer case. At this time parts are not available to repair internal damage to this type of transfer case, replacement is the only option. It is not uncommon for irregular tire wear to cause a similar noise. Diagnoses should be performed to confirm the actual cause of the driveline noise. Tire noise can be reduced by rotating the tires at least every 5000 miles.

Problem Reported: Coolant Leak from Thermostat Housing

A coolant leak may develop at the thermostat housing, under the intake manifold. Our technicians tell us that revised parts are available to correct this concern.

Car Review: 2005 Toyota 4Runner
September 14, 2010, 08:26 PM
I bought tis car new and ever since she served the family well. I had to wait for it an extra 3 weeks, because I wanted one without the sunroof and leather/electrical seat. I'm a tech, so I take care of all the maintenance or repair and the car gets all the best - OE or better parts. Beside the reg. services I replaced the following: -all tires @ 40K -front brakes @ 50K -A/C evaporator @ 55K (that's the reason for 3 stars on the A/C system) The only thing I miss is an MP3 capable CD player and a switch for the traction control. There are some off-road situations when it would be better off. Overall - it's a great car, I'd buy one again.
