Vehicle

2003 Toyota 4Runner Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

This is a great vehicle. I looked at everything b4 making my decision and am convinced I made the right one. I bought the silver with grey leather. All options except navigation-dont wish I had it. I am very surprised I dont see more on the road, but not disappointed.


Best Features

Engine,transmission, gate assist feature, sliding rear window, avg 19 mpg.


Worst Features

Stronger brakes! I have to stand on brake at stops. Move fuel door release, cruise cntrl to steering wheel, add rear air controls.

2003 Toyota 4Runner Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I have had this vehicle 4 months, one of which has been in the shop. The sunroof quit working and so did the dealership. I finally got the car back and the paint is peeling off of the front! 40K for this??? I should have bought a Hyundai!!


Best Features

I took it offroad. It seemed to do extremely well. The V-8 is unstoppable, both on the highway and offroad. Mileage good for a vehicle that weighs way too much. Nice interior. I hate it, I love it.


Worst Features

Quality, Quality, Quality. Where is the clutch?? Why is this car so heavy (Performance matters to some of us)? The "shelf" in the back is a gimick. The "spoiler" in the back just looks stupid. If this were gone, I could open the back with my boats on top.

2003 Toyota 4Runner Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I looked at the MDX and was about to buy one, when I saw the 4 Runner. It looked so rugged. The interior was the same quality as the MDX. It had more features then the MDX. The 4 Runner is well thought out. The seating is very comfortable and easy to change. The features are numerous and are easy to use. The V8 engine has a lot of power and runs very smoothly. It has very little lean going around corners. My 4 Runner has the air suspension.It The audio system is wonderfully clear and produces an excellent sound. The SUV handles more like a car than the previous generations of 4 Runners. It is not as Car like as the MDX, but is still Very satisfying.


Best Features

NAV system, suspension, Leather seating.


Worst Features

back up sensors

2003 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Traded a 02 highlander ltd! More stable, better handling, more standard features. Averaging 19-20 mpg, and I drive it fast!My dog loves the power back window-the best feature! I am very analytical and research oriented, and could not find a comparable vehicle without spending many, many thousands more! The v-8 is silky smooth! In Colorado, awd will do most of the time.


Best Features

Power back window, Stability and handling, Value for the $, especially when there are incentives.Compared with a X5, GX-470, Touareg etc.


Worst Features

Fix the rattles/noise from sunroof and omit automatic locking doors. Make heated mirrors and X-REAS standard on SR_5. Otherwise, perfectly awesome!

Vehicle

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


Review

The most fun I have had in a SUV. Had a Nissan and an Isuzu before but 4Runner is the best yet. Forget the American name brand SUVs.


Best Features

Interior design of dash and its set up. Plenty of room in the front seat area. Body style.


Worst Features

More leg room in the back seat area.
