1998 Toyota 4Runner 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

3 cylinders diagnosed with very low compression at 85,000 miles - Toyota says this is normal wear and tear! Warranty book says listen for loud tappet noise, but dealer says that valves elongate so they get quieter. Unless owners get a $600 valve adjust every 40K miles, valves WILL FAIL. No service buletins were issued on this.

Best Features

We got the locking rear differential as we camp a lot.

Worst Features

Better engine, better warranty service, better customer service.
