2002 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
This vehicle is sized very nicely to
fit into compact parking spots. In
addition, its size makes it very
maneuverable on road and off. The
build quality is phenomenal and the
switchgear feels well put together. I
like the heated mirrors, power rear
window and especially the safety
features (ABS, VSC, Trac).
The only real gripes that I have are
the gas mileage and the tipsy feeling
that I get when I negotiate certain
curves (feels like it'll roll even
though it really won't).
Performance (I opted to have the TRD
supercharger/air filter/cat back
exhaust dealer installed. It's amazing
what 270+ hp will do for this truck!).
Warranty (all those mods are covered
by a nice warranty).

or a more powerful engine (the 3.4L is
a nice engine (too bad they stopped
tuning at 183 hp!)). Maybe VVTI should
