Love It Already

1999 Toyota 4Runner 4dr SUV
Just bought my 4 Runner SR5 4wd a couple of weeks ago but now drive it all the time everywhere. Friends are astonished that this is a ten (10) year old vehicle! It has logged 115,000 miles in Canada and was used all year in all weather conditions. Granted the first owners took good care of it but I seen many GM's, Fords and Nissans that were babied but notwithstanding the care, still turned to junk. Matter of fact I previously owned an Explorer and Pathfinder. The SR5's interior is like new and except for a few minor wee dents the exterior and black paint are perfect! The 16 inch alloy wheels have some very minor corrosion but way less than one would expect for enduring ten winters.
Ride comfort and handling in city and and on the highway, roll down rear window, decent gas mileage, full auto front windows,storage capacity, build and finish integrity. Still looks great. Historical reliability. (Bonus, my wife loves it too and she is used to a Lexus LS430)
Nothing that hasn't been taken care by Toyota in subsequent iterations since 1999.
