1987 Toyota 4RunnerReview

Reliable, Sturdy 5-speed 4-wheel Drive. — Only a 4-banger so the acceleration is not great on a heavier car such as this, and the suspension is pretty tight so it's a bouncy ride, but the 4-wheel drive is great and lots of body work and painting had been done on both rear fender panels to make it look great. Gets about 25 mpg on the highway. Good handling for an SUV. Has a big cargo area and the shell on the back is removable, so it's great for carting dogs around! Auto-locking hubs are nice, and the car has pretty good heat and really strong factory air. Really sturdy and 22-RE engines will run forever!

Pros: Rides high for good vision
5-speed gives better mileage
4-wheel drive
Nice interior for age
22-RE engine
Good heat and air
Auto-locking hubs
Easy maintenance

Cons: Bouncy ride
Not much horsepower
20 mpg town
Only seats 4

Maintenance Cost:

1987 4runner — 24 years old and is still running. All original inside and out.Engine still original and is still running strong with 275,000 miles. It is a work horse and very dependable. Can still do 90MPH but I would not recommend pushing it this hard because of the age of the truck.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very cheap to maintain. Still gets 20MPG.

Cons: None

Worthy By Robert

Great style and comfort. The newer V6 is far more fuel efficient than its predecessor. The tailgate does not have a push button assist which would be a plus. Also, the SR5 model requires adding a... Read More
