2004 Toyota 4Runner Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)
I have enjoyed my 4Runner and have found the reliability to be outstanding. It handles like a dream off-road. I race up and down deep sand beaches with no problem. It's light and quick (V6). The features and interior are nicer than your typical truck plus no rattles. Interior room is better than I expected. However, I'm 6'3 200 pounds and the seat + headroom is less than desirable. Fortunately, I have a sunroof, otherwise I wouldn't fit. The seats are narrow as well. If you lean the seat back like the kids do, you will have no issues with head room. One other thing, the computer states a MPG of 25 on the highway and 19 in town. Not true! It's more like 20/17.
