1994 Toyota 4Runner

The 1994 Toyota 4Runner was the first of its kind with four-wheel anti-lock brakes, though these were only available on the 3.0-liter V6. Those with the standard engine-the 2.4-liter I4-would have to make do with the rear-wheels-only system that had been standard since the 4Runner's entry into the market in 1986.

The 4Runner can be dressed up or down depending on the options selected, such as available leather seats and stereo options. Still a great SUV for off-roading, the truck is good on city roads as well (as long as you don't mind paying for the gas to make it go).

Problems cited by reviewers include wheel alignment, uncomfortable seating in the rear seat, and poor gas mileage. Otherwise, users rave about the dependability of this SUV.
