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.

Pros

design aesthetic.

Cons

warranty language is written so toyota coverage is minimal and is as worthless as the paper on which it is written.

Toyota's Service Rating Is A Scam. — poor paint. ridiculously expensive repairs, most of which are not warrantied.

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.

Safe, well-built, quality vehicle with no issues

Cons

Toyota maintenance and warranty are expensive

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.

2004 4runner Sport — Great all round car, whether you're offroading, road trip or towing the boat it'll get you there. Great performance and good gas mileage compare to it's competitors. 2wd or 4wd, diff lock and traction control, Xreas Suspension.. plus backed up by a 35 year reputation.

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