Best Car I Have Ever Owned! — When I originally purchased this car I was already well aware of how great this experience would be. I have several friends that own this car and it depreciates the slowest of any SUV. It's a very comfortable family car with tons of options but can also be used for off-road.

Pros: Perfect for everyday use. Very reliable. Never loses value. Great investment.

Cons: Fuel milage.

A True Suv — This was the third 4Runner I've owned and 10th Toyota. They are great reliable vehicles. With a Toyota, it's not what you pay for the vehicle, it's the value. I had all the scheduled maintenance done on all the vehicles and haven't experienced any breakdowns with any systems. In the end of ownership it rewards me with having one of the lowest depreciation values in the industry.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliable, Value, Looks, Ride, Resale

Cons: Not really a con, but initial price is a bit high. But, to quote an old cliche', "You get what you pay for". It's really the value not the price.

This Is A Great Combination Of A Luxury Vehicle With The Option To Go Off The Road. — Performance- I love how this car accelerates I never have problems keeping up. Appearance- I love the color Mica = green, grey, black all in one depending on the light. Fun factor- The sunroof and automatic back window roll down makes you feel like you are driving a convertible....

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: 4WD is great for those camping trails in luxury.

Cons: you can't really 4 wheel in a $45,000.00 car.

A Great Suv To Own — It is a nice and solid SUV. I have it for over 2 years and no any problem at all so far. The only concern is: it drinks too much gas - 20 miles per gallon for highway, 17 miles for city.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: A great and reliable car to own

Cons: Use more gas

Last Toyota I Will Own. — Several issues. Wore through factory floor mats, replaced under warranty. Almost through replacement. Several issues with built in TomTom. Finally fixed after 8 trips to dealer. Vent control LCD screen went dim, replaced under warranty. Supposedly I don't get in and out correctly, so driver bolster is ripping. Cheap leather. Will not look at, will not fix.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great off road, goes wherever I need it to.

Cons: forget Tom Tom,  cheap leather & cheap quality.

Perfect — Great all around SUV. Built on a Truck frame with 4WD performance. No available Locking Rear Differential in 2008 leaves some room for upgrades later. Mileage around 20mpg in stock form, drops quickly with offroad tires. Kinda big, but not too bad.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliable / Basic / Cheap

Cons: No amenities

I Should've Had A V8 — Good source of transportation. This vehicle is our third car so it stays in the garage most of the time. It was a dealer demo so it was a good price. I added leather seats to it which made it more my style.

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

Pros: great for moving bulky items

Cons: i have a 300C with 340hp.  so this V6 seems very lacking

4wheeldriver On A Budget — Simply a great car! Averaging 23mpg on highway, this is the perfect match for the 4wheel driver enthusiast on a budget that I am.this car surely is build to last and go anywhere you like from the rocky road of Jasper NP to the hot sand of the Death Valley.

Pros: everything

Cons: none

My 4runner.... — It's got everything I need. No fancy bells and whistles. Plenty of room for my kids and dog. The silver is rather common but I got that color for ease of maintenance. It has decent power and the gas mileage, although not fantastic, is tolerable. I always wanted a 4Runner and now I have one. My last car was a 2006 Black Lexus GS430. Stressed me out having that. It was hard to keep clean, everything beeped, chimed, bells went off, lights flashing...Geez, it was way too much...I'm so much more relaxed having this car. And it's very practical.

Pros: Great room, sporty look, simple and easy to clean interior, Ipod jack, sun roof, decent sound system. Rides nice, suspension is firm yet surprisiingly smooth. Corners well.

Cons: Gas mileage, power is just OK, stock tires don't impress appearance wise, sounds system is decent. Came from a Mark Levinson system. Hard to beat..

The 4Runner has pretty good features. I would like for it to have lane change/blind spot lights on the mirrors, warning me of a vehicle close like the ones on my 2015 Yukon. I relied on them, more t... Read More

It performs well for what it is designed for, however the unit is aged in a precarious way. The 4RUNNER needs mechanical updates in a transmission and engine to compete in fuel economy but not to hurt... Read More

Love the features, easy to figure out. This car was a reasonable value, that is why we went 2 hour away. Wish that it had a 3rd row seat and a DVD player. Read More
