Cherry 03 V8 4Runner LTD
By Patrick McHugh on
2003 Toyota 4Runner Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)
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.
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.
Bigger brakes and quieter michelin tires on it. Sub-woofer to perfect sound system. It could use a bigger towing capacity.
