2002 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
I was very upset with Toyota because I found out after purchasing my '95 4Runner with the 3.0 that there was a known problem with head gaskets but they did not recall for that year. They made up for it with my 2002. Toyota gave me more than I expected for my trade (even knowing the head gaskets were about to go) and sold this one to me at low book. It's been a great truck. Rides great, fun off-road, reliable. I'm going to lift this baby up, add bigger tires, and give myself more clearance since it climbs very well over rocks and boulders. My 15 year old is waiting for me to give it to him when he turns 16. Too bad, so sad. He'll have to buy his own. I'm keeping mine.
Pretty much everything. It's my all in one form of transportation that takes me everywhere from work, to the my favorite surf spot, and into the hills.
Go back to 15" rims. 16" makes for a very expensive tire. Other than that, I'm happy. Zero repairs at over 145K miles to date.
