I purchased my 4 runner in 06 with 117 K on it , it was a 1 owner trade in with all service receipts ( lots of them) all service performed by the book by Toyota , (main reason I bought it) that and the reviews by owners. It has proven to be the best most reliable vehicle I've owned to date. I currently have 350K on it with no major or minor problems, I do my own service /maintenence, no breakdowns, everything still works, and I have the LTD with power everything! all I can say is wow, pretty much original everything. runs like a swiss watch. still drives like new and looks close to new.
made in Japan with top quality parts, seriously whose alternator lasts 350,00 miles,500K here I come

I purchased my 2000 4Runner in 2009.
At the time it had 100,000 miles on it.
Now, at 148,000 miles it is still running strong.
Other than routine maintenance and a couple of small repairs, I have had nothing go wrong.
I use this truck to haul a boat, as a daily commuting vehicle and it has never failed me.
The styling is timeless and, although the ride is a bit rough at times, it is comfortable and very quite.
I get about 17-18 mpg around town and 20-21 on the highway - not bad for a SUV.
My only gripe is the small gas tank.
I can only get about 225-240 miles between fill-ups.

I bought this SUV used with 106,000 on it back in 2006. So 5 years later I now have 226,000 miles on it and still pretty satisfied with the overall performance. The few complaints would be 1) brake pads/rotor replaced 3 times in 5 years 2) the uneasiness of driving with high winds swirling thus causing the SUV to sway 3) fuel filter replaced 2 times 4) rear axle replaced 3 times 5) power antenna went out 2 times but radio still plays...other than those complaints it has been mechanically sound and I wouldn't doubt it going for another 100,000 miles.
Optional color-coordinated fender flares are available on the SR5. An AM/FM/cassette/CD is now available on base models, and is standard on SR5 and Limited models. Daytime running lights are now included with the antilock brake package.
