Long-lasting Suv That Keeps Its Value. — Although the acceleration is at the lower end of the spectrum, my 4Runner handles like a car when cornering and the braking is excellent. I havent had to replace many stock engine parts (although I have, just to make it more efficient). The engine runs good even in sub-zero (Butte) weather. The front make funny noises when heating up in the winter. It has a great paint job, good suspension for on and off-roading. Once you understand the mass of vaccuum hoses, it's easy to work on since it is ODB-1 and parts are relatively easy to find even though it's foreign. It can fit places that full-size trucks can't and has enough power and gears to go anywhere.

Reliable And Great! — I love my 4runner, it has been good to me for many years. Mine is hitting 320000 miles and still runs like new. Gas mileage is not that bad for an SUV. I have the manual transmission so when theres traffic it is a pain sometimes. Although it is not a powerful car but for driving its perfect and handling is great, feels like your driving a small car, I never get a sense of roll over on sharp turns. As long as you take care of the it, it will take care of you. Once you own one you start loving it!

'94 4runner — Great for off-road driving, handles like a dream. real bargain for the price I bought. Longevity of the vehicle is surprising. Not too bad on the eyes, but worth the beating up. This truck will take anything you throw at it!

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

'94 4runner — I love my truck but it needs more power. It is built like everything should be, very solid. It's a pretty good looking truck. It is pretty expensive to own as far as gas. It is really fun to drive.

Could Be Better — Its a Toyota. Has 4 wheel drive. Good for getting through the bush. Acceleration sucks, its more of a cruising truck. Has a pretty big sunroof which is bossy. Can be turned into a nice truck if you have the money.

Doesn't have a lot of power on the highway, doesn't get the best mileage in the world

Excellent First Car And Mild Offroader — It is very solid for a 15 year old SUV, has only 103,000 miles, has the 3VZ-E V6 with the A340H 4 speed automatic transmission, has every factory option except the alarm, and is my first vehicle that I hope to never sell!
