1999 Toyota 4Runner Overview

Want some free advice? Never break up with someone on the second day of a 10-day trip, especially when you're traveling through a place with no easy exits or airports. Not the best idea. However, if this does happen to you, hope you are traveling around in a 1999 Toyota 4Runner (as I was when I broke up with my then-boyfriend).

Why is the 4Runner a good car to ride around with an ex in? It's incredibly roomy inside—almost cavernous. Get the stereo pumping, and you will hardly notice the other person is there. And, if you decide to rekindle old flames, the back seat is plenty big. (Just kidding. Well, it might be, but we didn't exactly get there.)

In all seriousness, the 1999 4Runner is a very comfortable SUV with car-like amenities. The seats are comfortable and seem to cradle the back as one would expect from a sportier vehicle. My ex's SUV was the Limited trim, and a 3.4-liter V6 came standard.

Reviewers cite poor gas mileage as a problem but, as is typical for the 4Runner, praise its dependability and off-road capabilities.
