Disappointing Powertrain
By Gary Abraham on 01/04/05 17:26 PM (PST)

Vehicle

2003 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I am very disappointed with my 4runner. At 3000 miles it developed a driveline vibration when it is driven between 50 and 70 mph. Toyota head office tech reps could not fix it. Between the dealer and head office I have been given the run around for 15 months. I hope they replace the truck, if not I will have sell it soon. Buyers beware...

Don't waste your money...

2003 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This was my first and will be my last Toyota. Toyota's 4 Runners are not the high 'quality' advertised. My past 6 Jeeps and 3 Buicks were all better. Worst, for a vehicle that is advertised to perform well in adverse weather, beware. It's rear doors freeze to the wheel wells after running through even the slightest mud and allowing the vehicle to sit overnight in below freezing temporatures. Bad design. Despite numerous contacts with Toyota, they refuse to even acknowledge the problem or do anything about what could be a serious safety defect, one that would prevent emerency egrees. "Oh, what a feeling..."

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


Review

I had the '02 Tacoma and upgraded to the 4Runner....I love it!!!! The comfort, the gas mileage, everything. We had traveled quite extensively in ours (over 33,000 miles and haven't had it 2 years yet) and you can't beat the comfort. I will definitely buy another one when it's time to trade in.

Good luck getting parts

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


Review

After 13 months, and 21,400 miles I lost the transmission completely. It had to be replaced. It took one week just for the dealership to get the transmission, and another 2 days for install. Had I not complained to Toyota Corporate, the dealership was estimating about 3 weeks to get the part. No one should have to wait this long. This was my first and last Toyota. I bought a Toyota to avoid poor craftsmanship, but this thing is about as poor as you can get. I also lost the brake sensor on this lemon when it was only a week old. That took 3 days for parts, and only because I made the dealer pull from one on the lot.

Love the new style

Review

Bought this 4Runner used with 10K on it. It is a 2003 but has the color matched fenders and body, Looks awesome. the V8 engine has tons of power and the ride is smoother then ever. I previously had a 1999 4Runner Lmtd (That I loved) and this new one puts that one to shame. Toyota has really taken a step up with this new model.

No other SUV can beat 4Runner
By Broker on 07/22/04 00:00 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

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


Review

This is my 2nd 4Runner and this time, I opted for the top of the line Limited V8. I have now owned this SUV for over six months and it is absolutely a fantastic vehicle in every way, on or off road.I still own a 1998 that just had it's first brake change at 133,700 miles, with no other expense except for a water pump last year. Quality and reliability to the max. I intend to keep both trucks for a very long time.

Best Midsize SUV
By abercrombie_guy_38 on 07/18/04 00:00 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

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


Review

Without a doubt, the current generation 4Runner is the best midsize SUV you can buy. With a great design inside and out, good performance and gas mileage for an SUV, and exceptional reliability, nothing beats it. The 4Runner is highly civilized on the open road yet it's able to climb rocks with ease.
