Free And Clear And Has Been For Many Years — for a vehicle that is over 10 years old, i see many on the road and it still looks like a recent model - its a great vehicle. its the most reliable vehicle ive ever owned. Over the past 10+ years, its had very few maintenance issues. ive taken great care and it has rewarded me with reliability.

Magnificent Machine — this vehicle is the 4th 4-runner we have owned. i cannot say enough good about it. we drive city, highway, mountains and desert. it has gone on some extraordinary adventures - including extreme driving up a class V (river rating applied to road) four wheel mining road (backing up switchbacks and all) with our children safely in the back seat, truck fully loaded. my husband was driving home during a dangerous ice storm - driving from city to country. the roads in our state are crowned, thus have a high center gradually sloping down (for drainage - though not a large change in height,, but enough). he felt the truck sliding sideways while he was driving straight. suddenly, he heard the sounds of the traction control system kicking in and the vehicle got itself back up to where it needed to be in stead of the deep ditch. this truck has even made it through my daughter's learning to drive. it is good to know our family is traveling in this safe and wonderful truck!

Solid Suv That Will Last Forever. — A great looking car that performed extremely well in all conditions. This car was in the family for over 12 years and was the lowest maintenance vehicle I have ever owned. The best looking style year for the 4 Runner!

Good 4x4 Suv — Good off road truck. The 4runner needs more power. I love the looks of the truck, I wish it had a little more leg room. It can be cramped with four adults. Great truck for the kids! Safe and reliable!

Pros

Wonderful daily driver. Its extremely comfortable and very smooth ride. Extremely reliable.

Cons

Not many issues with the vehicle. O2 sensor problems are pretty common, but other than that they are extremely reliable and hold their value

Wonderful Ride — This is a vehicle that will not nickle and dime you to death. change the timing belt, change the oil, and it will last forever. The gas millage is not particularly great but it will get about 18mpg in town or on the highway.

never goes out of style

Cons

slow

T4r — acce;eration is decient for how small the engine is compared to the mass of the car. It is very underpowered as an automatic because of the gear ratio with the 4 speed with overdrive trasmition. it is very well built and drives/rides like a truck. i would deffinatly recomend this car to anyone who needs a safe reliable car. But if your going to get a 4runner get the 4WD model i have driven a lot of diffrent 4WD and AWD vehicles but the 4runner is overall the best.

I Like It. — New Battery, newer tires. Clean inside, large rubber mat in back for hauling. Has second shifter for mud, off road. Just upgraded it to the tune of $800. Still needs a shift celonoid I am told by garage. Has running boards. I have a bad back, cannot get into it anymore. It has a handle for pulling yourself into the car.
