I love(d) my toyota 4-runner. I just wrecked her and I am devastated. She is the most reliable car. I love her and will miss driving her dearly. I'm looking to buy another one- that's how much I love this car. If you are interested in buying a 4-runner make sure you look at the Consumer Report (you can get a hold of them at your local library) because I know there were a couple years that had problems - I believe the 1997 model was one of them.
I love how the Toyota 4 runners handle. They are very maneuverable around turns.
Gas Mileage. I will be the first one to buy a 4-Runner hybrid when they come out one day.
