1999 Toyota 4runner 2wd 4cylinder — the car accelerates good and the brakin is really good the handling could be a little better. i have had it 8 months and its been great hasn't needed any repairs. appearence whise it is alot smaller inside than it looks. to the exterior some of my friends with 4runners say it looks better without the runnin boards but i personally think they make it look more sporty. i have a 4 cylinder in mine and everybody thinks they great on gas. ya its good on gas but i think it could be better. maintenance on it is not expensive really. over all great car i definately would recomend it.

Great Vehicle — Great vehicle. Mine is still running strong at 150k miles. It will be hard to part with when that day comes. I like having 4WD but don't want a giant SUV. My favorite feature is the electric rear window for my dog.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros

Handles well and is a solid drive

Cons

Third transmission, breaking issues, occasional acceleration issues. Most due to age and use

35

99 4runner — It's just had some issues with the transmission(it's on its third) 230,000 miles on it, it's been a solid drive for years and I've had some good times. Handles decently, but the brakes occasionally need work. Mileage...isn't great. 19 MPG highway at max, 16 round town is my usual.

Pros

great on gas and very reliable

Cons

not much head room

35

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, room for stuff, looked good

Cons

the suspension fix was expensive, rides like a truck

First Car I Ever Drove. — I had it in high school and 1 year of college. Had some suspension issues but it was otherwise VERY reliable. Somewhat rough riding, we occasionally called it the potato wagon... never really bothered me.

Dependable, Well Built, Goes Anywhere — Vehicle was powerful before the 90,000 mile service. It drives through deep snow, wet or powder, without any hesitation. Highway riding is comftable with the right tires. I like a dependable vehicle and this Toyota is built well.
