2003 Toyota 4Runner SR5 Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)
I purchased my 2003 4Runner SR5 V8 with 16,000 miles. It now has 105,000 miles and every mile has been a pleasure. This vehicle has only required normal maintenance. I have had no major problems or expenses. I will probably keep it until it turns 200,000 miles and still enjoy it. The V8 is silky smooth, the transmission is solid and trustworthy and this model still looks good.
Compared to a lot of expensive SUVs, I believe the interior detail and materials on my modestly priced SR5 are excellent. I am never uncomfortable even after long distance driving.
The climate control system is a little illogical. It has a mind of its own. When simply turning on the system to get vent air, it automatically turns on the air conditioner. No big deal though.
