2003 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)
Overall, this is a very impressive
vehicle. However, I have had a
recurrent front suspension squeak
(traced to the body mount) that is
still not fixed after 4 visits to the
dealer, and I am now seeking to have
the vehicle replaced with a new one
with 3200 miles on the clock. I have
also been bothered by a rattle in the
headliner by the sunglass holder. I
expected better attention to the small
details by Toyota, but hopefully they
will remedy the situation. I love the
vehicle otherwise, I'd just like to
have a new one that's without the
squeaks and rattles.
Full-time 4wd, great stereo, better gas
mileage than I expected, solid ride,
Fix the squeaks and rattles. Toyota is
supposed to be synonymous with quality.
I would expect this from a GM or Ford
vehicle, but not a Toyota.
2003 Toyota 4Runner Sport Edition 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
This is my favorite SUV I have ever
owned. (99 Tahoe, 92 K-5 Blazer, 87
Cherokee, 82 CJ7) I tested the 2003
Tahoe, Discovery, Trailblaizer &
Durango and I would have paid a $5000
premium for the powertrain and handling
of the 4-Runner. New for 2003 increased
size and V-8 option won me over. The
best of the "real" 4x4 SUV's if you
dont have a large family.
Powertrain, Suspension, 4x4 system.
Auto headlights, dash mounted overhead
light control, Rear seat center LATCH
system & third row option.
2003 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
Unbelievable. Excellent SUV with
plenty of power and "foo-foo" stuff
for comfort. Loaded my SR5 with
leather, premium sound, etc. and still
paid $1000 below invoice!!! Previous
Jeep owner and this truck BLOWS it out
of the water!
Premium 6 disc in dash system!
Back window that goes down!!
Rear-seat audio is the bomb!
Add lights to ALL window switches.
Keyless remote needs a power UP for
the back window...not just DOWN!
