    Hi,

    I'm thinking of buying a used x-runner, and am looking for info on common problems. Thus far I see discussion on various transmission issues, and a bit about the limited-slip diff. Does someone have a good checklist made up? Or perhaps a list of common problems? I searched thru the FAQs and found some very good discussions of how to mod and/or repair many things--a pretty good sticky item in this noob forum in fact. But it appears mostly addressed to current owners vs how to evaluate a prospective buy.

    Hoping to testdrive one of these. I need to replace my current ride with a small pickup, and, most of them are pretty boring. The x-runner looks like fun.

    BTW the one I'm thinking about is a 2012 with 41K miles.

    Thanks in advance.
