My Toy Yoda — It's expensive to run but it starts first time every time and I feel safe in it. It's a little sluggish but acceleration isn't what this car is about. It has a lot of torque and feels like it could pull a train. It is also very comfortable on a long journey and (for an old car) it's a good looking vehicle.

Fun Truck! — great, reliable, and fun car to drive, particularly in the snow. pick-up style tailgate and a truck frame makes the truck very useful and utilitarian. a little tight in the driver seat for someone over 6'4", but otherwise a perfectly sized truck!

Great Overall — I love the Toyota 4runners. Bet trail riding vehicle thus far. It has plenty of room to take a trip on, yet is small enough to fit through tight trails when needed! I have been through 4 4runners and have never been dissatisfied

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Good — Rear antilock braking Wet-weather traction (4WD) Passenger and cargo room It's a work horse, it can go anywhere, 4x4 is great, plenty of space, big chunky tires, reliable, and its high off the ground. with minimal non-essential maintenance. Not the greatest on a hill! But then again, put it in 4wd and it zips up a snow covered hill just fine.

A Good Deal For Offroad — It is nice for off road, but city is shakey. It had no problems other than some lack of maintainability issues. It is a good car though.. but its my car and I really love the way it turns heads

Great Family Car — By this time I had two small children in car seats. Room for lots groceries in the back, much more comfortable and plush than the 1985 4Runner. Still safe, solid, no maintenance issues, very reliable and easy to get into 4-wheel drive.

Best Vehicle I Have Owned. — I love my Runner. She looks good! 2 doors are the best looking! Great in all weather, very little rust, totally reliable. Working on visor and other accessories to pretty her up even more. Had minor problems as she was a rebuild but nothing that costs too much. I'm gonna drive her until the engine dies and get a new one put in.
