Have good resale value. And engine runs well over 200,000 miles. But the price can be high for a pre owned vehicle.

Honestly, does not get the best gas mileage. But I am not interested in that so much as value, durability, reliability, and practicality. It gets a rating of 10 in those areas.

Five Stairs Through And Through! — This is the absolute best car ever. I would recommend this SUV to families, who are on the go. It's great on gas mileage. Handles well. Maintenance is reasonable. Easy to drive. Safe all around. Great for commuting or for a drive up to the mountains.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: I absolutely love this SUV. It is the best car I have ever owned.

Cons: None.

Loved It And Hated To Sell It — I would recommend the '05 Toyota 4Runner Limited to anyone. I took very good care of this vehicle and it never gave me any problems. I hated to sell it but I decided to buy a newer one and I did not need 3 since I still have my '88 4Runner. I know it will serve it's new owners well if they take care of it.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: My favorite 4Runner, loved how it handled and rode.  It gave excellent service, very dependable and got great gas milage.

Cons: None

4runner — I enjoy the space my 4runner provides. It has a lot of power and is very comfortable. I hate the gas miliage. I have also had lots of problems with the brakes on my 4runner. If you don't mind the horrible gas.miliage its a good ride.

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

Pros: Comfortable ride

Cons: horrible gas milage

Overall:

Nice Rig — I love love love my 4runner and hate to get rid of it. She has been very reliable and safe for my children and I. I can no longer afford the gas millage it gives me though. It's a very clean car, with a lot of gumption for those who like to get on it. I always have felt very safe in my car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Plenty of room. Handles great for an SUV.  Has great power.  I like to get up and go and it does it with no problem. I feel like my children and I are 100% safe in this car.  It is still in great condition for 7 years old with two kids.  It's comfortable. And very reliable.  I have never had 1 problem with my car.

Cons: With this economy and gas prices as they are. Gas millage hurts for the daily drive I have.
