Good To Go!! — Great deal for my funds. I bought it from a great friend, and he rebuilt it professsionaly. Hasn't missed a lick. Thermostat may be going out soon (got one for $10, with gasket), and sensor for back window are my only current issues. I love it !!

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

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

Rear Diff. lock for 4-wheelin

Cons

Gas mileage and needs more power

25

4runner For A Runner — Needs more power! TRD Supercharger will be the first upgrade. Works great off road, with factory rear diff. lock and higher than average ground clearance. Of course it is much more fun to drive off-road! Gas mileage is OK for an SUV. Can't beat the build quality - it's built in Japan at the same plant they make the Landcruiser / LX.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

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

they go almost anywhere offroad

Cons

they are small inside

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.

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.

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
