    99 4runner — It's just had some issues with the transmission(it's on its third) 230,000 miles on it, it's been a solid drive for years and I've had some good times. Handles decently, but the brakes occasionally need work. Mileage...isn't great. 19 MPG highway at max, 16 round town is my usual.

    Pros: Handles well and is a solid drive

    Cons: Third transmission, breaking issues, occasional acceleration issues. Most due to age and use

    Don't Need One — This is a Toyota 4Runner. Always has been a great vehicle from the Toyota line. The auto tranny shifts very smooth and so far no major mechanical problems at all. Regular maintenance and small items expected to go wrong. Overall, a fun vehicle and a good strong engine. I wish it were 4-wheel drive, but still a great car/truck.

    Pros: Very smooth driver

    Cons: 6cyl SUV not good on gas

    1999 Toyota 4runner 4wd Limited — This is a very reliable family vehicle. Gas mileage is good considering it is an older SUV. Runs well but has some squeaks and rattles from being an older vehicle. Have not taken it off road yet bit I want to. Lots of leg room but not so much in the head room area.

    Pros: great on gas and very reliable

    Cons: not much head room

    1999 Toyota 4runner 2wd 4cylinder — the car accelerates good and the brakin is really good the handling could be a little better. i have had it 8 months and its been great hasn't needed any repairs. appearence whise it is alot smaller inside than it looks. to the exterior some of my friends with 4runners say it looks better without the runnin boards but i personally think they make it look more sporty. i have a 4 cylinder in mine and everybody thinks they great on gas. ya its good on gas but i think it could be better. maintenance on it is not expensive really. over all great car i definately would recomend it.

    Pros: they go almost anywhere offroad

    Cons: they are small inside

    Great Vehicle — I'm a Toyota guy. I've owned lots of makes and models of cars, but nothing has been as reliable as my Toyotas. The 4Runner is no exception. It has over 150,000 miles and still performs like a new one. It's a great vehicle.

    Pros: Dependable, comfortable, powerful and roomy - looks sharp

    Cons: Not as good mpg as my Camry, but not bad for an SUV, I average around 22-24 mpg.

    First Car I Ever Drove. — I had it in high school and 1 year of college. Had some suspension issues but it was otherwise VERY reliable. Somewhat rough riding, we occasionally called it the potato wagon... never really bothered me.

    Pros: Reliability, room for stuff, looked good

    Cons: the suspension fix was expensive, rides like a truck

    Dependable, Well Built, Goes Anywhere — Vehicle was powerful before the 90,000 mile service. It drives through deep snow, wet or powder, without any hesitation. Highway riding is comftable with the right tires. I like a dependable vehicle and this Toyota is built well.

    Owner for 5 years, 0 months

    Miles Driven per Year:10,000

    Cons: high step to get into the driver`s seat

    Good To Go!! — Great deal for my funds. I bought it from a great friend, and he rebuilt it professsionaly. Hasn't missed a lick. Thermostat may be going out soon (got one for $10, with gasket), and sensor for back window are my only current issues. I love it !!

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

    Pros: Most Everything.

    Cons: I have drivin this Beast through hundreds of miles of terrian,. It hasn't missed a beat. The Kids love riding in it too!!
