According to the information there you can get the Toyota Nav system on the matrix along with a 6 Disk Changer. Why would it be possible to connect a changer to the Nav system on the Matrix and not on the 4runner? Would they purchase/manufacture different Nav systems for different cars?
Also, I have read that you can play DVDs on the Nav screens on the LX470 and Landcruiser. Why not on the 4runner? It can't be cost effective to install different systems on all of these cars.

I also think we would be amazed what dealers and oil change places really put in our car. On my older high mileage Honda and Acura I use 5W-30 in the winter and 10W-30 in the summer. I put 5W-30 Mobil One in the 4Runner.
I think it can be argued that 10W-30 is a better oil. More stable and less prone to break down. On the other hand car companies are wanting to put oil with the viscosity of water in your car. In the grand scheme of things, 10W-30 should be fine.
When to change oil, some say it is old school to go 3,000 miles while others go much further. Modern engines do a lot more than ever before. I bet the Toyota's that had sludge in their 3.0 V6 might wish they went with the 3,000 mile oil change. I am from the old school and like 3,000 mile oil change. I know a lot of auto experts are now saying 5,000 miles. That may be a good compromise. I would NEVER exceed your recommended 7,500. I know one person who posted on the sludge board here at Edmunds that had a Lexus RX 300 and he used Amsoil and went 25,000 miles before he changed oil. Amsoil has a 25,000 mile warranty. Well the engine sludged up and guess what neither Amsoil or Lexus would fix his car.
