    Great car, decent on mpg. Have experienced just typical car problems such as a dead battery, or starter not wanting to turn easily. Overall great car, and just like a Jeep Wrangler they keep their value.

    Reliable And Efficient — a powerful car, very spacious, good for family drives , good when moving households and reliable. The look of the car is elegant yet sporty. drives very comfortable. The only problem i find is it is not very quiet when driving (unlike all the other luxury cars !)

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: powerful, easy drive, very spacious, easy to move households

    Cons: not very quiet when driving on highway

    1998 Toyota 4runner 4dr Limited 4wd — This car eats up gas. Make sure to put 89 when pumping. Good suv for road trips and for families. Really good car to keep. Many compliments by others on the road. Excellent cargo space. This car is a keeper.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Vehicle will last you for a long time. Purchased in 1999. Still running like a beast.

    Cons: Gas , that's about it.

    Great Vehicle All Around. — great vehicle with 254000 miles and not a single issue yet. We take it on family vacations and occasionally (very occasionally due to it being my wife's SUV). after I did the deck plate mod the fuel mileage went up surprisingly. no complaints on it at this time.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: great small SUV.  no major issues.

    Cons: wish it was a little bigger. wish the back seat was a little bigger.

    I Love My Truck — It's a truck and it rides and drives like one. The V6 offers better than average performance however I only get about 17 mpg with my slightly heavier tires. However it's a Toyota so it needs almost no maintenance, also the build quality is great. I love the way it looks and drives. The power rear window is my favorite feature!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The practicality of an SUV combined with Toyota's reliability makes this the perfect truck.

    Cons: Gas milage sucks, but it is no worse than any other vehicle of this type.

    1998 4-runner Limited 2wd — I think my SUV is great. It has alot of room for family, friends and anything else you want to put in it. I've had it for 8 years and never had any major problems with the motor, transmission, or rearend as they have recalled in the past. The inside and outside is very stylish..LOL. It isn't top heavy like the explorers or chevy blazers. You can use it for towing boats, jet skis and ect.

    Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

    Pros: Its an overall great vehicle.

    Cons: Its not 4wd

    I Love 4 Runners — rides smooth, fun to drive, gets ok gas mileage when you drive it how its supposed to be driven. looks new garage kept, has good acceleration and great breaking, when the oil is changed and the from end is alligned it handles very well.

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

    Pros: fun

    Cons: n/a

    This Truck Is Ballin. — The 4Runner is equiped with a 3.4 liter DOHC V6 engine and a 5 speed manual transmission. This truck is currently stock except for a custom high flow muffler. It is not the fastest machine, but it can rock a mad baja rippin up the backroads.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: 4wd is where its at.

    Cons: None, this truck is ballin.

    Economical, Do-all Vehicle — This is the perfect combination of everything you could ever need in a car/truck. Awesome build quality, reliability, and resale; seats five, great leg room, huge storage space, sturdy roof rack and 5400lb tow capacity; narrow size and small turning radius for easy parking; 16/22 mpg with a 200HP V6 makes for economy and power; power everything, all kinds of options availible; and styling that will never get old. Truly a timeless car.

    Pros: Spacious legroom,  good gas mileage for a V6 SUV, storage space is huge, easy to drive

    Cons: very narrow (tight squeeze for three in back), cupholders are a joke, radio antennae notorious for failure
