2004 Toyota 4Runner Sport Edition 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
I bought my 4runner Sport V8 new in Feb of '04.
8 years and 135K miles later it's time to find a new home for it.
It has been the most reliable car I've ever owned in 37 years of driving.
Gas mileage is what I expected at about 16/mi overall.
I used it to pull a 5K # boat and trailer and never missed beat.
Even pulled great through the hills of NH and VT.
I've done all of my own maintenance and found it to be very easy to work on.
It still looks and drives great.
Cloth interior shows no signs of wear. Only significant problem I had was with the sunroof while it was still under warrantee.
Took 3 trips to the dealer and they finally replaced the whole thing.
ZERO issues with the drive train
Snow and wet handling
Resale is very good.
Should be ale to get $9K (about 1/3 of original cost)
