Vehicle

1998 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

The 4Runner is a very practical vehicle, handling well in all weather and road conditions and hauling dormroom-bound cargo with ease. Unfortunately, this vehicle came with a defective master cylinder, dropped a transmission at 80000 miles, and has had numerous switch, latch, lamp, park brake, etc. failures throughout its life. I will be hesitant to buy another Toyota because of the poor company and dealer response to the numerous issues.

Best Features

4 wheel drive, manual transmission, V6 engine, power moon roof.

Worst Features

Better quality control for vehicles leaving the factory. Better dealer and company response to customer issues. Being told that dropping brake fluid levels was "normal" in a new vehicle was ridiculous.
