Cupholder Explanation For Everybody!!!
By Donthaveoneyet on 03/31/04 00:00 AM (PST)

1997 Toyota 4Runner SUV Limited 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

Okay, I do not, and have not ever owned a 4Runner, although I hope to very soon. I took my spring break trip to Japan, and had always seen the reviews on 4Runners complaining about the cupholder placement. The reason they put it there is to keep drinks cold in the hot months by using the AC to cool it. This is VERY standard in Japan, nearly all vehicles have this set up. True, it may make it take longer to cool the cabin, but who likes piss-warm drinks in July?

Bought my runner a few months ago and I love it .It may only be a 4 cylinder but it has all the power I need . On some long steep hills it may kick down a gear but not always .

Review

I've owned the vehicle since it was new and it has proven to be 100% reliable. Other than normal wear & tear I've only had to replace the rear window wiper motor.

Review

I just traded my 97 for a 20003. Hope this one is as good. 95,000 miles and replaced 2 tail lights. That's all. 17- 20 mpg. Same brakes and battery, new tires after 50,000.

4 runner I hate to leave
By Juan Giron on 06/28/03 00:00 AM (PDT)

Review

Absolutely no problem with the enginnering of this 4 runner. Very reliable and safe. Drawbacks are perhaps the choppy ride over bumps due to the truck frame it is built on. The power antenna broke and is expensive to repair. The 4 runner does about 17-19 mpg and is very powerful and smooth. A true joy to own.

Simply the Best

Review

Bought new in '97 and not one problem. Extremely reliable - almost bomb proof (when was the last time you saw a Toyota SUV being towed?). Quiet interior. Great off-road vehicle with good on-road ride. Adequate towing cability with good gas mileage for a SUV. If there is a better 1997 mid- size on/off road combination SUV on the market, I haven't been in it. Did I mention this vehicle is reliable?
