Re: Oil Change Intervals on the 3.6?

I change it when the monitor tells me to - it's usually around 8k. Uses whatever Mopar oil the dealer puts in.

Re: Please Help Getting Weak looking at 4Runners :(

As an option, according to the brochure on Toyotas site, and it's not labeled as AWD (semantics, I suspect). And, everything I can find says you still have to shift into the full time mode, otherwise...

Re: Please Help Getting Weak looking at 4Runners :(

I admittedly looked at the previous generation 4-Runner before buying my GC. Like others have said, the interior was dated and the tech was horribly outdated. But, Toyota does have solid engines and...

Re: Windshield Wipers

I've been using these for years as well. Not cheap, but they go like gangbusters, especially with snow. I replace mine every 6 months, earlier if they start streaking.

Re: Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure

That's what would keep me from getting the 20" wheels - my parents just bought a 2015 with the 20's. Going to be fun when they have to replace the tires, there's really not much out there.

Re: 2014 Uconnect RA3 - RA4 / Engineering Menu

Re: Are '14 GC Owners Adjusting to Electronic Shifter ?

Re: 2014 V6 owners - how do you like it?

Re: is it AWD or 4WD

Indeed. My Dad has a 2012 Tribeca...it's a beast in snow, and they live out in Nebraska. I'd put it up against my GC or even my old Cherokee any day. It just mows through.

Haha, amongst other things. I don't do much offroading, but they definitely help with the random road debris from I-95 and I-495. I've lost count of the things I've heard bang into the plates.
