    This A Great Vehicle To Own And Drive. — I love this vehicle, it has far less repairs that have to be made than my other cars.

    Cons: There is some kind of defect with the motor in the antenna and th rear brake lights seem to go out more than normal (once a yr)

    The Most Indestructable And Reliable Vehicle Anyone Has Ever Built. — It is a sure footed stable suv that feels great on as well as offroad. Even has locking rear differential which is only found elsewhere on the land cruiser. Plenty of power in town, good torque, hwy speed passing is another thing, it has grunt but not a lot of speed. After 281k miles and still going, I would have to say everything has held up beyond any person possible expectations, still looks, sounds, and drives great. It is a tank that just wont die. Some maintenance is expensive, timming belt job is over $1000, but only needed every 150k miles. Oh, and this is my second 4runner, I actually drove my other one into a lake, pulled it out, dried it out, and it still runs just like before.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Everything still works great, runs, drives, and looks great even after 281k miles.  Just how long will this thing last?

    Cons: Its a Toyota, pretty bland in the styling department, and wish they came with the v8.

    Good Overall Suv Good Performance — The 1998 Toyota SUV Limited 4 Wheel drive is an excellent choice for those living in winter climates and need the extra insurance of never getting stuck. The 4 Runner has always been one the best choices for overall durability and I agree. 8.5 out of 10

    Pros: 4 wheel drive never get stuck!

    Cons: The cups are not designed well in the front

    says:
    I've own all three cars! The Jeep is a great off road toy, but not roomy at all in the back let alone it can only seat two people not three, no cargo room! It is great for modifying and making ultimate offroad toy! But very expensive to own, needs repairs and parts are way more expensive! I've spent over $2k fixing it and that is getting it down at cost! Pathfinder is a little more to repair than the 4runner but not as much as the Jeep. It's only flaw is the suspension, you just have to replace it at 150k miles, but no more than $500 for everything and after that, it drives the smoothest! definitely the fastest stock! The 4runner has to be super charge to keep up! 245HP compared the 4runner 183hp Jeep 190hp On gas Jeep was the worst 14 mpg driving it like an old lady maybe.. maybe.. 15mpg. The Pathfinder almost the same but can get up to 17-18MPG, the 4runner I've had a few of these, Id get an average of 17mpg one even average 21mpg all day long and was a 4x4 automatic, my stick got 22mpg at 60mph so better gas on the 4runner. You can even camp in the 4runner, back seats go flat and can literally camp inside, much nicer and easier. Pathfinder does the same and has the same amount of cargo room, maybe an inch more, but the 4runner back window goes down and that is such an awesome feature! Really air out the car, and feels nice while driving! Overall, I have owned literally a dozen plus of 4runners, I would go with an Infiniti QX4 (upscale pathfinder) Jeep would have to be seriously modified but just to much unless you have some money to waist. 4Runner 3.4L engine all the way! 3rd Generation!
