I loved my 4Runner. Dependable, fun to
drive, offroad capabilities like a
champ. Bought it with 150000 miles and
it was still running like a champ when
a Dodge minivan ran a red light and
smashed me. Totaled it but I was very
impressed with how it took the hit.
Some minor problems like a power
steering fluid leak and the seal
between the transmission and the
transfer case was leaking tranny dope
but not enough to ever run out or fill
it back up. Also burned oil at
somewhat of a rapid rate, about a
quart every 2-3 weeks but other than
that it was cherry. Anybody who says
its underpowered probably has never
taken it seriously offroading, its
just geared low. Hope I'm lucky to
find another one
Aggressive stance. Good interior with
plenty of room I thought. Good high up
ride and good visibility. Very sturdy.
Enough space for large tires with no
need for a lift.
Gas mileage of course but lets be
serious, nobody buys an suv for the
gas mileage, leave that to the hybrids
and lets go offroad. Cup holders too
but if people didn't buy supersize
drinks it would be alright.
