2004 Toyota 4Runner SR5 Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)

Review

The 2004 4runner was our first Toyota. Almost 5 years now and it has about 55K on it with no major breakdowns. In extremely low temps the heater motor will not work, which seems to be a common failure I have read in other reviews. Also, the AC has a relay that seems to be a weak part that they have upgraded on the newer models. When the relay pukes out, the AC light blinks and will not get cold. Cost about $75 for the part, but I have read some horror stories with getting it repaired or diagnosed properly. Overall, this SUV has been superior to the US made SUVs I have had in prior years. Like all used vehicles, Toyota trade-in value is disappointing. Makes me keep what I have longer.

Favorite Features

It is just a vehicle. Nothing spectacular, but reliable so far.

Suggested Improvements

Better gas mileage and longer warranty would be nice.
