NO! Surly you jest! Why didn't somebody mention this before now?



























Oh, wait, maybe they did.

They removed the flipper glass because the glass now rolls down. Didn't you guys see that handle that you crank to roll the rear window? If not, that will be a nice mod though!

Guess no CD player for me then if I get a new GC......just use bluetooth from iPhone.

Still....no coin holder! My previous WK had a spring loaded coin holder for each coin. I just use a little round Gladware container which holds a lot more....

Re: Buy A 2014 - Deal Breaker Question.......

I don't understand how the CD player can take up the entire storage area. CD players are much smaller than that storage area.

I find the flipper glass to be handy. Instead of it you now get a larger wing with the center stop light than previous WK2's.

I honestly think Disc-player are close to being dead in vehicles - with flash media being so dirt cheap, you can get quadruple the space that was available on the HDD in the MY13s. I use is on my Maxima now but would rather save the $3K package option and use a USB stick/drive or SD card - which the MY14s seem to implement very well.

That's still my favorite feature of all 4runners.

I wish more manufacturers would do a power rear window. So nice to open the sunroof and just crack the rear window to get rid of the sunroof wind pulsing.

That...and just the overall convenience of throwing a board in there.

Seeing this pic really makes me regret picking the CD player option. I knew where it was when I ordered it but I didn't realize the left over storage space was so shallow and that you lost the upper storage area as well. Oh well, it's my wife's vehicle and she wanted the CD player...

Re: Buy A 2014 - Deal Breaker Question.......

I've never used the coin holders in cars but it was one of the first things my buddy mentioned when he picked up his 13...What are you all doing with all those coins?

Especially since that's probably all you have left after buying a new vehicle!

With the advent of EZ Pass, and the disappearance of pay phones, who carries change?

When I first moved to Delaware I would go to Dover Downs every couple of months and donate my change to the slot machines. Now, even a one armed bandit won't accept change.

I went to a local kragen auto store and they didn't even have a coin collector there
