    Powerful and reliable with more luxury options than ever before.

My 4x4 sr5 4runner is

Vehicle: 1999 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4dr SUV

Bought it used in 2007 with 130000 miles at a used car lot. Now has 18xxxx miles. Still runs strong. As long as you do the regular maintenance. This 4runner will run forever. The cloth interior is still great as I put a cushion on driver seat, a dash cover keeps the dash from cracking. The blue paint still shines as it is always garaged. Only used 4WD once in a muddy situation. The only drawback is the engine is kind of weak in this day and age IMO.

Great off-road vehicle

Vehicle: 1999 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4dr SUV 4WD

The 1999 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4x4 (with automatic transmission) is simply the best stock SUV I have seen for off-road use. It is so light that it tends to skim across the surface of mud with the 4x4 engaged, rather than sinking like a Tahoe. It is narrow, so it can make it through skinny trails. It has high ground clearance and skid plates on key components, so it less likely to get damaged. It has a relatively short wheel base (which combined with the high ground clearance and removing the running boards) means it is unlikely to get high centered anywhere, unlike a Suburban. Any it is still very reliable after 115,000 miles.

I bought my 4runner in 05 with 130k miles on it and didn't blink, now i have 245k miles and have only put a starter on it(are you kidding me). This is the best toyota yet and i have owned 5 toyota's and currently drive a Echo for the gas mileage and it has 190k on it and still running strong. I think about other vehicals but always stay with ol 4runner because it has always been there for me and i look to break the 300k with this truck.
