Pros

Very comfortable, looks very nice

Cons

Its an SUV so it takes more gas than a car, but it is still good- not bad on gas at all.

Great Suv — This 4runner is awesome, but we are looking to sell it since we really don't need all the space, like we used to. We would like to downsize to a car. I will definitely miss this Toyota 4runner when we sell it!

Pros

This vehicle has a very sporty, and stylish appearance. The Sport edition gives this 4runner an X-REAS suspension and unique 6-spoke 17" wheels. Very comfortable ride and low maintenance cost.

Cons

Gets 17/21 MPG

Great Suv For Anyone. — I enjoyed the capabilities this 4runner has over some of the other comparable cars. The Sport edition is in my opinion the best option for the 4runner. It gives it a more sporty look, as well as a better suspension. It has a great audio system as well.

This Is The Perfect Sport Suv. It's Rugid Yet Stylish And Drives Like A Gem. — This is a smooth SUV. It handles incredibly well and is very safe and comfortable to drive. It is insanely reliable and has tons of cargo space. It's the perfect sports SUV in that it tows boats, bikes and skis.

Wonderful — It looks great on the outside and runs great as well. Never had any issues beside the regular maintenance. what I really like about the car is how reliable it is and also how specious it is, though it has only two row sitting the back is huge.

Toyota 4 Runner — A great all around vehicle. Mileage averages 18 to 19 miles a gallon in a combo of city and freeway driving. Great, reliable sport utility vehicle. Very few maintenance issues. It's been coast to coast, from Texas to Florida and back several times and to California and back.

Pros

Premier off road capability, quality, and reliability

Cons

comparably low on storage

25

Far Cry From The All Wheel Drive Minivans That Dominate The Suv Class — An absolute tank in deep snow. With off road capabilities has a surprisingly smooth ride on the road. Could have more storage space, though I'd trade the space to get the advantages of the independent rear axle. Gets decent fuel efficiency, surprisingly good considering the power and torque it offers, especially as compared to the other 'conversion' SUVs that it out-performs in off-road situations.

You Should Buy One — Climbs anything in any weather, excellent car only had a few minor fixes. Has a SLR motorsports chip, K&N cold air intake system, with a Borla cat. back exhaust system which sounds great. always fun to drive and there is plenty of room inside.

I'd Buy It All Over Again — Purchsed the vehicle new in 2004. The truck has all the bells and whistles, very good performance and has encountered NO quality issues as of yet. It has 60,000 miles and drives/looks like it's brand new. I would purchase a new 4 runner in a heartbeat

Its The Perfect Car For Someone That Likes Rugged Suvs — THe toyota 4runner is an amazing driving machine. It has just enough power clocking in at 245 hp and is a rugged car. I have taken it offroading and it is a very fun car to drive and also extremely dependable.
