Ho Hum Reliable

2002 Toyota 4Runner SR5 2WD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
Bought the 2002 2WD 4Runner based on reliablity history of Toyota. Nothing spectacular after 52,000 miles. Always starts, no major repairs - except the automatic radio antenna broke and needs to be repaired someday. Car is holding up well. Only regret is that I didn't buy a 4WD and sunroof, both would make the car better for me. Drives/handles like a truck - not the smoothest ride. Good visibility, no blind spots. Somewhat noisy on the road - even with new tires. Sometimes, I'd prefer to have a fun car with some pep, but my plan was to keep the 4Runner until I get to 200,000 miles.
High off the ground - good visibility, stereo sound pretty decent.
