I just bought this 4runner 2.7L/4 cylinder/manual/rear diff lock four months ago, since I bought this 4runner I never had problems, I just changed brake caliper/changed oil and adjusted the rear brakes, I brought it to my mechanic after buying it and he said when he test drove it, it runs like 6 cylinder, he likes it!! It has 242800k in its engine but man it drives great!! I am planning to keep this truck 'til it drops. Routine check up needs to be followed and this stud will rock!!
Cruise control, engine, handling, reliability, height, a/c, interior, spacious for Asian like me.
Cup holder needs to be moved, manual tranny on reverse creates humming sound, sort of locking every time turning sharp when 4WD is engaged.
