2004 Toyota 4Runner Sport Edition Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
This is my 2nd 4runner which replaced a 2000
SR5 Sport and will certainly not be my last.
Bigger, quieter, more comfortable and tons of
standard features makes it stand out from the
rest. The price helps too. I got mine for a little
over $29k. Simply put: this is one of the best
SUVs on the market. Great price, features and
Toyota build quality and reliability.
strong V8, better fuel mileage than the
previous 3.4L V6, great stereo, AWD, interior
space, 5spd auto, X-Reas suspension, safety
stronger V8 (i like acceleration, sue me), they
lost the auto open/ close passenger side
window, power driver seat, wish the hood
scoop was functional, styling looks kinda like
a minivan, bigger size makes it sluggish

Styling took some time to get used to.
The towing capacity is great and you
cannot beat the engine. Compare the
interior quality fit & finish to most
other comparable suvs (save the MDX)
and you understand the price tag.
The silky smooth V8 & standard trailer
I find the lap section of the front
seats too short. Both the driver and
passenger side seats are somewhat
uncomfortable. Make sure this fits you
before you buy!!
2004 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)
We love this car, should have bought
one a long time ago. I've owned
several toyotas and this is my
favorite so far. They finally got rid
of the slide out cup holders just
under the cd player, and the new ones
are great I can fit a large Nalgene
bottle it it, they are are adjustable
for smaller cups, and they don't get
in the way of any of the controls. The
4runner is very comfortable and
controls are all in a handy location.
Plenty of power - for what I need -
quiet, and the third row option is
great for my little girls. The engine
is larger than our last SUV and the
gas mileage is better. It is also a
little wider than they used to be so
its more roomy.
redesigned dash and cup holders
everywhere - in each door, between
seats, even on the sides of the third
Great styling, rear power window
operable from remote, climate control,
and on and on.
wishin' they offered the moonroof and
premium sound with the thrid row on
the SR5. As far as I know if was only
availble on the limited model which
was a bit steep[$] for my needs.
Better all terrain tires stock on
models sold in mountainous areas.
2004 Toyota 4Runner Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
i found the limited to be full of
conveniences and a few inconveniences.
i have a 38" waist. the seat belt is
hard to find and fasten when i get into
the drivers seat.seats need to be a
little wider. more options for the
money spent would also be a plus.
adjustable pedels should come standard
with the limited. fuel milege is much
worse than a jaguar xj8. which we
thought was bad till the limited showed
up in our garage.
the nav system is cool. however it
takes alot of time to understand it and
operate it to its potential...if i am
wider seats, telescopic wheel or
adjustable pedels preferably, better
fuel economy for a toyota, miss that
old 20r engine, sort of.
