    Reliable Work Vehicle — Love this car. Dependable and low maintenance required. This rare 4 Cylinder engine has people coming up to me at gas stations offering cold hard cash to buy it- but I won't sell it! Paint has done well for being an outside car exposed to the sun and salt air in CA.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Rare 4 cylinder model. Easy maintenance. Great gas mileage.

    Cons: Rides rough. Slow to accelerate to 60 mph.

    Great, Reliable And Can Go Anywhere — This car is excellent. it is my first car and I plan on keeping it for a long time. It takes me anywhere I need to go, up steep hills even in rain or snow. I am never snowed in because the 4runner can go anywhere.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Reliability- 140,000 miles on it no problems except for a rear shock and a wheel bearing
    My dad has a 2001 with 190,000 with few problems as well. They have been known to hit 300,000 +.
    Off road ability, will take on anything you need (4wd).
    Fuel economy- about 15 mpg- good for an suv

    Cons: acceleration is a little slow, still fast enough for everyday use
    no traction control-(feature first offered in 2000 but standard in 2001)

    Love My 4 Runner — I love this SUV has ample room, rides great, drives great, decent gas mileage and has a lot of nice features as well as chrome bumpers for added safety. Gives you more protection than the plastic matching bumpers and all the windows roll down including the lift gates.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: great size, decent gas mileage great ride, I love this car, handles great and has chrome bumpers.

    Cons: Only gets 18/22 mpg, repairs and maintenance is expensive on all Toyota

    Fun And Reliable. Glad To Have It In My Garage. — I bought this 4Runner without knowing much about them other than the reputation of being basically bombproof. So far, have taken it camping, mountain bike races, and traveling all over. Really love this thing and glad I have it. I would definitely recommend a 4Runner.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Solid, and trustworthy. Reliable. Functional.

    Cons: Not the greatest gas mileage.

    Most Fun On Trails And Off-road. — The 4Runner has been a blast to drive off-road and on trails around the countryside. The are comfortable on short trips but get harder the longer you drive. Fuel economy is around 17 MPG on the whole, which isn't up to par with newer vehicles. With all that said, I still use it as my daily driver and would hate to part with it because it's such a versatile vehicle!

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

    Pros: Strong drivetrain and pleasant ride.

    Cons: Low fuel economy and slow V6

    I've Loved It For Years — This rig has been great for anything from hauling family on trips, to hauling my foosball tables around for tournaments with or without a trailer. Even though she's got a lot more miles left in her, it's time for me to update to a newer one.

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

    Pros: Looks great, drives great, goes ANYWHERE, hauls ANYTHING

    Cons: A little steep on the gas eating, and maintanence is a little high

    A Great Comuter, Or A Fun Recreational Vehicle — I love driving this car. It's great for getting around town, or getting off of the roads. It's fuel economy / tank size are well balanced to give a decent range ( ~350 miles), and is very comfortable for family use And lastly, it being a Toyota, you never really have to worry about reliabilty issues. The one I drive on a regualr basis just kicked over 225000 miles, and it's still going like it's only got 25000.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great comuter. Incredibly easy to drive. Relatively stylish, and good looking.

    Cons: Limited is only available with an automatic transmission (which makes sense, I suppose, but I prefer standard). Power delivery can be a little rough at times.

    Great Vehicle — Great vehicle. Mine is still running strong at 150k miles. It will be hard to part with when that day comes. I like having 4WD but don't want a giant SUV. My favorite feature is the electric rear window for my dog.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Gets where I need to go no matter what

    Cons: Too much torque spins tires on wet roads

    4runner For A Runner — Needs more power! TRD Supercharger will be the first upgrade. Works great off road, with factory rear diff. lock and higher than average ground clearance. Of course it is much more fun to drive off-road! Gas mileage is OK for an SUV. Can't beat the build quality - it's built in Japan at the same plant they make the Landcruiser / LX.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Rear Diff. lock for 4-wheelin

    Cons: Gas mileage and needs more power
