I purchased a 98 4Runner Limited with
87,000 miles on it and was not at all
concerned with the mileage because of
Toyota's legendary reliability. At
90,000, I had the timing belt, spark
plugs, etc. (the 90k service job)
replaced and have had an excellent suv
thus far. Knock on wood...I have not
have any problems whatsoever with the
suv. I have put about 16k miles on it
including taking a 3,500 mile trip this
past summer and experienced smooth
sailing through the mountains, desert,
Exterior design is very stylish
and "tough" looking. It fits in the
city or country. The interior
styling/layout has a nice appearance.
Different location for cupholders...
(this problem was addressed and fixed
for the 1999 model 4Runners)
A bit more power...(the V6 engine is
sufficient for most all purposes, but
could use a little bit more horsepower)
