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.)

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.

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.

Safe Safe Safe — This is the best truck I have ever owened! It does ride like a truck, so if you want a truck that rides like a car buy a Highlander, they are built to ride like a car a Toyota Camry in fact. My son was involved in a very bad accident in a 2005 version of my 4 runner. A loaded dump truck pulled out in front of my son only able to get up to 8 mph. My son was going 55 mph in the left lane of a major highway just slightly ahead of a fully loaded log truck in the right lane. My son locked the brakes swerved hit the lt rear end with his lt front end of the dump truck. My son was then horizontal in the middle of the highway & the log truck struck the 4 runner broadside on the driver side going 55 mph, fliped the 4 runner over 3 times & came to rest on top of my sons 4 runner. It took 3 tow trucks to remove the log truck off of the 4 runner. My son was trapped for 2 hours. Yes my son was hurt.., however he did not die,he is not paralyzed & his brain was never injured! I believe the many safety features & many air bags of this Toyota 4 runner helped to save his life.

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.

A Great Suv To Own By donglins

It is a nice and solid SUV. I have it for over 2 years and no any problem at all so far. The only concern is: it drinks too much gas - 20 miles per gallon for highway, 17 miles for city. Read More
