Overall:

I love 4Runners!! There’s nothing quite like them. Toyota has been my go to vehicle for years. I do like jeeps too. This 4Runner isn’t the color I want and I don’t want leather seats because I have dogs. I’m still thinking about it.

Overall:

Not worth 16k, has major hail damage on all body panels, looked like they replaced the hood but that’s about it. Front grille clips are broken along with the hood scoop clips look broken as well. Vehicle has a whole in the rear bumper on the driver side, looks like it was hit at some point.

Absolutely in love with my 4Runner. I see now why they’re so popular. Very sturdy, fun to drive, and very comfortable. Amazing SUV.

Power Ranked 2009 Honda Pilot better.
"Its engine is a VTEC system."
Handling Ranked 2009 Honda Pilot worse.
"This is pretty similar quality for both, in fact maybe better handling from the Honda, not sure. "
Looks/Style Ranked 2009 Honda Pilot worse.
"More stylish of a vehicle"
Front Seats Ranked 2009 Honda Pilot better.
"More comfortable, more settings."
Back Seats Ranked 2009 Honda Pilot worse.
"More leg room possibly"
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2009 Honda Pilot worse.
"Toyota 4runner has more cargo space if the Honda third row is being used. If not the Honda pilot i think has slightly more cargo space than 4runner."
Family Car Ranked 2009 Honda Pilot better.
"Honda pilot is in general overall a more comfortable and luxury car to be in while traveling. "
Value Ranked 2009 Honda Pilot better.
"Honda pilot is going to be cheaper than the 4runner, however due to this it loses its resale value much faster than the 4runner."
Would Buy Ranked 2009 Honda Pilot worse.
"I can appreciate the back window of the 4runner going up and down for my dogs, and the overall longevity and durability of a 4runner will out run a Honda pilot. However the luxuries are nice, theres more to go wrong and break, versus the simplicity of the 4runners, and then lastly the resale value of a 4runner will always be higher than the Honda pilots. "

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
