Love this baby! Can't seem to want to trade it in. I have put 170,000 on it. Very minor problems such as water pump,starter, and oxygen sensor. Other than that, oil, gas and tires. It gets the gas mileage that it should get for a 4.0 engine. People who complain need a smaller car not a SUV! This baby is fast too.

One of the best cars I've owned. A little wind noise that I would prefer to not have. At 153,000 miles, it's worth far more to me than the trade in value offered.




Hunk of junk

Almost the day the warranty ran out, this hunk of junk has been nothing but a headache. I bought this jalopy new and in the last year have had to have the tranny rebuilt, a new water pump, a new power steering pump, a new radiator, and now the evaporator needs replaced. Enough already! I am buying a 4Runner.
