Pros

Hauls stuff, cheap to ensure, darn near indestructable

Cons

Eats gas like Wheaties, no handling, no speed, really top heavy and narrow, almost won't pass emissions tests these days

It Gets The Job Done But It Isn't What I'd Call Fun — I bought this truck as a replacement for my Jeep. It is more reliable but it certainly is what I would call a fun every day vehicle. I think it may be about time for something sportier and far more fuel efficient.

Bulletproof Road Warrior — This is a great all around car. Good utility functionality, great driver, substantial performance at the time it came out, there isin't much amazing to say about it, but there are very very few weaknesses in the car.

Toyota 4runner — Great Car! I have owned atleast 10 4runners, I keep fixing them up and end up selling them to my friends, and people I know, this is one of the best cars ever made, go forever and cheap to maintain. Everyone should have a 4runner

Worthy By Robert

Great style and comfort. The newer V6 is far more fuel efficient than its predecessor. The tailgate does not have a push button assist which would be a plus. Also, the SR5 model requires adding a... Read More

A Great Suv To Own By donglins

It is a nice and solid SUV. I have it for over 2 years and no any problem at all so far. The only concern is: it drinks too much gas - 20 miles per gallon for highway, 17 miles for city. Read More
