Best SUV made for the price
By John Rawlings on
2005 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
This is a high-end vehicle for a mid- range price. I purchased my 4-runner brand new and 63,000 miles later have only one regret. This truck was not the best design for tall people but ok with the floor position for the seat completely back. Not much ceiling clearance either. Now with that said the Toyota 4- runner deserves recognition as a premier SUV by which all others should be judged. Large enough for a family of 4 to take on vacation, convenient roof racks ,and equipped with a powerful 4.0L engine that can effortlessly take you anywhere. Toyota has always impressed me with quality control that is unparalleled by any auto maker in for comparatively priced vehicles.
Rugged, attractive, sporty exterior design. Comfortable interior, user friendly instrument placement. Very safe. Equipped with a durable chassis & suspension. The ample 245 HP engine makes it a pleasure to drive (up mountains with little effort). The fuel efficiency is above average for the vehicle.
Add 6" of length for leg room evenly split front to back. Add 1.5" of headroom. Change absolutely nothing else!
