A lot of people don’t push their SUVs to the limits (that's usually a good thing), and if you’re someone who has absolutely zero desire to go off-road, this isn’t for you. Even when driving on the street, you’ll wind up intentionally aiming for potholes, accelerating for speedbumps in shopping centers, and wondering just how much time you'd spend in jail for taking a shortcut through someone's lawn.
In city-traffic, the SUV leans through corners, the nose dives under braking, and pretty much every motion is symbolic of the 4Runner which begs you to call in sick to work and go back riding through the wilderness.
It’s not perfect, but it’s close.
