Pros

Dependable, comfortable, powerful and roomy - looks sharp

Not as good mpg as my Camry, but not bad for an SUV, I average around 22-24 mpg.

Great Vehicle — I'm a Toyota guy. I've owned lots of makes and models of cars, but nothing has been as reliable as my Toyotas. The 4Runner is no exception. It has over 150,000 miles and still performs like a new one. It's a great vehicle.

Pros

Great comuter. Incredibly easy to drive. Relatively stylish, and good looking.

Cons

Limited is only available with an automatic transmission (which makes sense, I suppose, but I prefer standard). Power delivery can be a little rough at times.

A Great Comuter, Or A Fun Recreational Vehicle — I love driving this car. It's great for getting around town, or getting off of the roads. It's fuel economy / tank size are well balanced to give a decent range ( ~350 miles), and is very comfortable for family use And lastly, it being a Toyota, you never really have to worry about reliabilty issues. The one I drive on a regualr basis just kicked over 225000 miles, and it's still going like it's only got 25000.

Don't Need One — This is a Toyota 4Runner. Always has been a great vehicle from the Toyota line. The auto tranny shifts very smooth and so far no major mechanical problems at all. Regular maintenance and small items expected to go wrong. Overall, a fun vehicle and a good strong engine. I wish it were 4-wheel drive, but still a great car/truck.

1999 Toyota 4runner 4wd Limited — This is a very reliable family vehicle. Gas mileage is good considering it is an older SUV. Runs well but has some squeaks and rattles from being an older vehicle. Have not taken it off road yet bit I want to. Lots of leg room but not so much in the head room area.

Pros

Reliability- 140,000 miles on it no problems except for a rear shock and a wheel bearing
My dad has a 2001 with 190,000 with few problems as well. They have been known to hit 300,000 +.
Off road ability, will take on anything you need (4wd).
Fuel economy- about 15 mpg- good for an suv

Cons

acceleration is a little slow, still fast enough for everyday use
no traction control-(feature first offered in 2000 but standard in 2001)

Great, Reliable And Can Go Anywhere — This car is excellent. it is my first car and I plan on keeping it for a long time. It takes me anywhere I need to go, up steep hills even in rain or snow. I am never snowed in because the 4runner can go anywhere.

Love My 4 Runner — I love this SUV has ample room, rides great, drives great, decent gas mileage and has a lot of nice features as well as chrome bumpers for added safety. Gives you more protection than the plastic matching bumpers and all the windows roll down including the lift gates.

Fun And Reliable. Glad To Have It In My Garage. — I bought this 4Runner without knowing much about them other than the reputation of being basically bombproof. So far, have taken it camping, mountain bike races, and traveling all over. Really love this thing and glad I have it. I would definitely recommend a 4Runner.

Most Fun On Trails And Off-road. — The 4Runner has been a blast to drive off-road and on trails around the countryside. The are comfortable on short trips but get harder the longer you drive. Fuel economy is around 17 MPG on the whole, which isn't up to par with newer vehicles. With all that said, I still use it as my daily driver and would hate to part with it because it's such a versatile vehicle!

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

I've Loved It For Years — This rig has been great for anything from hauling family on trips, to hauling my foosball tables around for tournaments with or without a trailer. Even though she's got a lot more miles left in her, it's time for me to update to a newer one.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

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
