Vehicle1997 Toyota 4Runner Limited 4dr SUV 4WD
ReviewDon't trust everything you read in Conumer reports about this SUV. I purchase my 1997 4runner in August 2002. Vehicle had 57,000 miles and was a Toyota "Certified" Used Vehicle. Two months later I noticed a heavy shimmy when I applied the brakes between 40 and 50 MPH. Then on cold mornings the transmission wouldn't shift into drive until the engine warmed up. Took it to my dealer, $800...!! to replace front rotors and rear brake drum which had cracked (still under Certified warranty but brake parts not covered). Tech couldn't figure out why the transmission won't shift when cold...
Best FeaturesSmooth, quiet ride for SUV
Worst FeaturesBetter reliability! Seat should go lower to accomodate 6' plus drivers. Not much headroom for tall drivers
