4Runner Research Inquiry

Does anyone have any experience with Toyota 4Runners?

I'm looking to pick up a 4Runner and would like some feedback regarding the different years and trims that are available. The SUV will mainly be driven by my wife as we just had our first child and need a bigger car due to safety concerns while traveling with the baby.

What it must have:
  • back-up camera
  • GPS
  • 4 wheel drive capability (we plan to take it to the snow)
What would be nice but isn't a deal killer:
  • sunroof
  • off-road capability
  • what is the difference between the trims that are available? EG, the TRD off-road trim mentions Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS) whereas the TRD Pro mentions Bilstein shocks w/TRD-tuned springs...what's the difference between these?
  • is one trim preferred over the other? Seeing that there are 6 trims available, I find it difficult to pin-point where the difference between trims are. Do the premium trims just carry nicer interiors?
  • how reliable is the 4Runner?
  • what are common issues that I should be on the look-out for if I purchase a used vehicle?
  • is there a year that is preferred over the other?
  • how is the audio quality?
  • ride comfort?
  • I'm hoping to pick something up for $40k max out the door...should I be looking for a used 4Runner instead of a new one due to my cap?
I know this isn't a Toyota forum but I tried posting in other forums with no response so I'm hoping someone here has experience with 4Runners. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance everyone!
