I bought my 4Runner two years ago from
a dealership. I was told that the head
gaskets were replaced in 1994. This
year, the head gasket blew again. I
found out that some of the recall
replacements were bad too. I took my
truck back to the dealership I bought
it from and Toyota took care of the
repair - but they informed me that I
was on the tail end of the warranty.
My advice to anyone purchasing a 1992
would be to investigate this further.
I also had to make a fair amount of
repairs to this vehicle (I put $1,000
into various repairs). It would be a
really good idea to get this car
thoroughly checked out by a mechanic
before purchasing one.
