Review of the 2003 Toyota 4Runner

  • The 4Runner legend continues. This is one of the best midsize SUVs for 2003.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Powerful V6 engine, rugged off-road capabilities, many standard and optional features.

  • Cons

    No third-row seat, cargo capacity isn't much more than what many compact SUVs offer.

  • What's New for 2003

    Toyota's popular midsize SUV has been completely redesigned this year. Though it stays true to its truck-based roots, it comes with many new upscale features, including an available V8 engine and an optional navigation system.

After 7 years, still strong!

Vehicle: 2003 Toyota 4Runner Sport Edition Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)

Just drove 2300 miles from California to Atlanta without a hiccup! No worries on long road trip when you have a reliable Toyota with you. Oh, and this is with 97K total miles.




Stuck on toyota

Vehicle: 2003 Toyota 4Runner Sport Edition Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)

I just bought a 2003 4Runner sport edition with the optional V8, 2WD, and it is amazing. I always wanted a 4Runner, and could finally afford one. It is great. I should have bought it years ago instead of an explorer that blew a head gasket and needed new lifters after 85k miles. I am only 24 years old, and drive hard, and it keeps up with me. Being in real estate, I need a nice car for clients, and a reliable and low maintenance suv that I can fit my family's stuff in when we go out for the weekend. This is an awesome vehicle!!!




Best suv out there

Vehicle: 2003 Toyota 4Runner Sport Edition Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)

I've had my 4Runner for exactly 3 years and have done nothing to it minus your oil changes, etc. I have never had a bobble out of my Toyota. I actually do not have a 4WD, and it is top notch in the snow, so I could only imagine how great a 4WD would be. I'm 20 years old and I drive hard, but my 4Runner can most certainly keep up. From my short experience as a driver, I am almost certain I will buy nothing but Toyota's from now on.




Excellent 4-runner!

Vehicle: 2003 Toyota 4Runner Sport Edition Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)

I have owned this vehicle now for almost 3 years and the only thing I've done is just your monthly/bimonthly maintance(oil, filters, etc.) It is, in my opinion, the best vehicle I've owned.




Awesome 4runner

This vehicle is an awesome vehicle to drive on and off road. It has a Lexus like interior and and Gated shifter.

interior items break of allthe time,the engine puts off a rotten egg/ sulfer smell when you get on the gas! the front seats are the most unconfortable,the limited version is better.resale sucks on the vehicle.
