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

Review

I bought one of the first 2003 4Runners, SR5 with V8, before the V6 became available. Main reason for the purchase was the great powerful V8 and silky smooth ride. I still like it, but wished I had waited a couple of years and bought a used one, since the value dropped so quickly. The car is so reliable and well built, even after almost 7 years it seems like new, so I think that picking up a decent pre-owned one seems a pretty safe bet. Anyway, the 4Runner is not for tall people and it is not the most spacious SUV out there. If you have a big family, I would go for it's big brother, the Sequioa, or the Honda Pilot, if you don't need the V8 power.

Best Features

V8 power, quiet ride, decent fuel economy, good reliability.

Worst Features

- Interior is fairly small, not good for tall people, especially with sun roof. - Sun roof is badly designed and practically useless, lots of wind noise. - Rear seats are pretty tight and there is very little space for feet under front seats. - Cargo space is tight - Toyota service is bad
