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


Review

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!!!


Favorite Features

The driver's controls are easily reachable, and the motor purrs like no other. Plus plenty of storage space for my gadgets next to me.


Suggested Improvements

None, it has everything I need, and what I don't have can be purchased from the dealer, like nav. and upgraded stereo. A tiptronic transmission would have been nice, but no biggie.

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


Review

4Runner well built in Japan, plenty of power with V8 engine, 5,000lbs towing, scrupulously maintained, mobile 1 oil changed every 3,000 miles. Very low mileage as owner working outside of country half time since purchase. Performed very well on cross country trip. A pleasure to drive, interior in perfect condition, has nav system, am/fm. Perfect size to negotiate narrow road and trails. Any bigger vehicle loses utility. Back country vehicle of choice, beats out rangerover, hummer, etc.


Favorite Features

Good driving position, good cockpit, steering, etc. vsc and abs do in fact work and do a good job. Safe vehicle. Can out run must of competitors. Handles up country environment. Looks cool, cosmetic work on plastic front end parts, done perfectly, but no mechanical problems whatsoever.


Suggested Improvements

Bigger brakes and quieter michelin tires on it. Sub-woofer to perfect sound system. It could use a bigger towing capacity.

Review

My husband talked me into this car. I wanted something small. It was the best purchase I ever made! It gets good gas mileage, rides and drives like a luxury car, is perfect on long trips for everyone. Lots of space, lots of storage compartments with NO wasted space. perfect for a female cause it has lots of cubyholes. Easy to change rear seats and storage divider. Quiet, comfortable, reliable, and gadutes! What more could you want?!?


Favorite Features

Storage, heated seats, plush seats, dual temperature controls, storage, miles per gallon indicator, miles left on tank indicator,3 trip meters, storage, easy folding rear seats, automatic rear window button on remote, lighted running boards, and STORAGE!!


Suggested Improvements

Hard to find accessories for it, needs lumbar support in passenger seat, and needs driver seat settings memory.
