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.

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.)

Is This Really A Toyota? — my friend bought one of these cars and absolutely hates it. he says that it is uncomfortable, especcially the third row seat, which is barely big enough to support an adult. the horrible handling and breaking cancel out what would be "amazing" performance by the v8 powertrain. the car isn't necessarily your average toyota, being that it is very unreliable.

Sweet Car — It rocks!! Acceleration is amazing braking is good handling is great. Little scraps here and there not to bad. Interior is awesome nice leather seats and awesome radio. Would like it black but you take what you're given. Awesome car to drive. Gas milage is decent. Maintenance is next to none.

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.

bought one because:

I actually bought BOTH of them. 4Runner is more reliable mechanically (no issues and it has over 80,000 miles) and handles better on wet pavement. Explorer handles better at highway speeds of 75 mph. Explorer protects excellently in side-impact crash (happened to me). I don;t know how the 4Runner would do, thank God I haven't experienced a crash in that vehicle.
