Review
138,000 miles to date, and plenty left on this truck. Have commuted 100 miles round trip the past 3 years, and never a worry in any weather. Head Gasket replaced at 30,000 per "recall" notice. Around 100,000 miles finally had the brakes replaced. Rear wheel bearings, too. Other than that, smooth sailing. Still has the original exhaust! Some small rust spots finally showing under the window weather stripping, and the bottom of the rear window. The rear hatch latch is getting pretty rusty; might soon it won't operate. But the truck has operated like a champ through thick and thin. 96 was the last year the 4-runner's style was best in class, in my opinion.
Favorite Features
A real truck chassis, reliable, strong V-6, and an interior perfect for both out-on-the-town dinners and 4-wheeling deep into the Adirondacks.
Suggested Improvements
Stronger shocks (although lived with the originals for 100,000 miles). Other than that, a real masterpiece!
