2002 Toyota 4Runner Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
I purchased my '02 4Runner 4WD Limited when it was about 2 years old. I purchased from an acquaintance who I knew took virtually perfect care of all of his vehicles. I purchased this 4Runner as I am one of the very few folks who truly needs 4WD and uses it regularly. I had had previous positive experiences with Toyota 4WD vehicles, and liked the aspects of balance, ground clearance, true box frame, two speed transfer case... in short, I wanted a small truck. So far, so good. My 4Runner still looks and runs virtually like new. Oil changes with Mobil 1 every 5K, plus meticulous maintenance will hopefully allow this vehicle to last for many years.
Tight, absolutely rattle free vehicle! Quiet!
Better mileage would be the biggest bonus. I average 21.7 MPG, with an all time high of 23.6 MPG, and lows hovering around 16 MPG when towing a 5500 lb boat.
