2004 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)
Very reliable, good-looking, solid car. V6 is quick (haven't driven the 8), and it is a fairly comfortable car, even on long drives. After looking at a new '05 Explorer, chose the used 4Runner (w/13k), and have never looked back. This car runs the same as the day I first drove it. Mechanically and interior-wise everything is solid. Even the way the doors close - THUMP! - solid. Very smooth and confident drive. If you are looking for an all around solid SUV, then this is the one. But don't take my word for it, drive one yourself.
