2003 Toyota 4Runner SUV Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

WHY make a back window that would go
down with the remote access and not be
able to go up I feel like I am looking
at the sunvisors every time I get in
this vehicle. there are people with long
torsos. AND the fact that you have to
be Godzilla to pull the back door down?
it would be nice to have at least two
phone portals or should I say
phone/computer or just plain more than
one in the front. I find the one near
the console VERY cumbersome. Sounds like
a lot for someone who rather likes the
vehicle but that window is BAD!!!! and
those door locks are horrible!!!!!!!!


Best Features

Like the center console and storage space a lot!!!! Handles very well -- love my heated seats -- do away with those moon roofs -- they take up needed headspace and had to get it


Worst Features

see above --- sorry -- but true think everyone that has the '03 model should have that back window fixed -- no one told me about the fact it would not go back up!!!!!

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


Review

I've only had it for a week and all I
can say is it's AWESOME. With out a
doubt the best melding of luxury and
toughness out there! Love the ride,
comfort, handling and power this beauty
has, the new V6 engine is just
stellar. The ride is much more comfy
than my previous vehicle (Jeep
Cherokee) but it still feels tight and
responsive.


Best Features

The V6 engine, interior layout, sunroof, and the neato hood scoop.


Worst Features

Side airbags should be standard equipment.

2003 Toyota 4Runner SUV 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.

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.
