1996 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4dr SUV 4WD
This SR5 4R has been the best and most reliable SUV. It is very capable off road and handles good on road. The weak V6 does not make it the quickest vehicle, but it is adequate if you keep the rpm's high when power is needed. It is driven regularly in the Colorado mountains and handles great in snow and rough roads. I purchased it used with 47K on it and now I have 150K on it with no major problems. I will probably keep this vehicle until around 200K as it is showing no signs of problems and seems extremely reliable. I do have a mysterious rattle high up in the dash on the passenger side which people cannot find without removing the dash for $500.
Electric window in the tailgate, locking differential, moonroof, 5spd. front brakes lasted 120K miles!
