2003 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)
I absolutely love my 2003 4Runner. It's roomy, comfortable, reliable and good looking, too. I also own a BMW 740 and my g/f comments on the 4Runner's good looks more often than the Bimmer. In fact, given the option, she'd drive the 4Runner first. Interesting. The Toyota V8 is a beautiful running engine and I still get a respectable 17 mpg around town, 21 highway. Oh, I also appreciate the good ground clearance, 4WD and ABS because I live in snow country. This thing is very sure footed.
This vehicle is the perfect blend between utility and comfort. The V8 engine and superb reliability are its best features. Its ride quality, performance and comfort are good too... especially for an SUV.
My one and only complaint: the sunroof rattles sometimes. It can drive me nuts, especially on concrete roads w/ wide seams.
