1997 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

My 4Runner has been a wonderfully solid, reliable, and capable vehicle. I regularly drive it on rugged 4WD roads during camping trips in the Sierras, Death Valley, and Arizona (e.g. Sunflower Mine, Coke Ovens) and it has never let me down. It has a surprisingly large cargo area and my girlfriend and I can stretch out and sleep in the back (5'9"). The visibility is great, it's easy for anyone to drive, and even after 212,000 miles the V6/auto combination gives me 22 mpg on the highway at 70 mph which I'm quite happy with for an SUV. I'll be keeping this one past 300K.

Favorite Features

Reliable, low maintenance, durable, good looks, four wheel driving capability, good resale value, rear window rolls down, smooth shifting tranny.

Suggested Improvements

Would rather not have a retracting antenna, power is just adequate but would not want to sacrifice gas mileage, oil filter hard to reach, stiff ride, goes about 400 miles per tank but I would appreciate a larger tank.
