Our 3rd Toyota
By mtbenge on
2002 Toyota 4Runner SR5 2WD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
I thought after having this car for three years I would be wanting something different. I love this vehicle. Even for 2002 it looked dated, but we could not have done better for an SUV; got character though! The 4Runner has always stood out in design, ability, and reliabliity. Though it is not the most comfortable for long road trips it cannot be beat for hauling around all my equipment and the occasional off-road excursion. The traction and skid control are great. I can see driving my Runner around for at least three more years; even though I do like the new ones as well. As far as ride is concerned we just put on new tires - Michelin XTSes. I am really amazed how much better the ride
All the Sports Edition upgrades - better rear diff, larger brakes, larger tires, hood scoop, and leather steering wheel.Traction and skid control are favs. Great color - Thunder Cloud - a nice dark silver/gray. No other vehicles with it.
Interior space larger, bertter ride, more HP. I believe all these were addressed in the remodeled '03
