1998 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4dr SUV 4WD


Purchased this vehicle on eBay with 90K miles for $10850. In the 3 months that I've owned my 4Runner I've driven it almost 4K trouble-free miles. No rattles, no broken interior pieces, paint is awesome, and the vehicle runs flawlessly. Transmission shifts smoothly but is on a flexible hanger system which causes it to move around as evidenced by the gear levers moving;it also appears to build up tension on stops and then releases when you move forward...this is apparently normal for these cars. Ride is quiet and smooth; a very comfortable interior. Haven't used 4WD yet. 16" wheels are really nice. The crazy aftermarket alarm may have to go. Fuel economy is B+/A- (17 overall/21.5 on highway).

Best Features

Quality of build, paint, and materials used. Sliding moonroof, 16" wheels, and chrome package a must. Cruise control easy to operate and very smooth. Good looking vehicle even 6 years later.

Worst Features

Yeah, yeah, cupholders in front of everything important...I just use the holders in the back of the center console (usually used by rear seat passengers). Seems pointless to comment on improvements to a vehicle that is into a new generation. If you are thinking about it...get one. Do a CarFax.
