1996 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4dr SUV 4WD
Absolutely the most reliable and best built vehicle I have ever owned. I have owned it for 7.5 years and it has never failed or broken down. It will go just about anywhere and do just about anything you want it to do. My nickname for it is "the Tonka Toy" because it is such a tough and reliable truck. The shift on the fly 4WD is great. I have filled it with people and camping gear, put a full catgo box on the roof and four bikes on a bike rack on the back and gone over Snoqualamie pass at 70 mph. I can tow small trailers with it and it is just fine. It is approaching 125000 miles and has no squeaks, rattles or mechanical problems.
