2005 Toyota 4Runner Sport Edition 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
This is my second 4Runner after driving my 1996 for 289,000 miles.The tanklike build is no longer there, so don't expect to be backing into trees and stuff without replacing either bumper.The ride is much improved, along with the cabin noise.The sunroof is a pain, since you either press the button to let it open the hatch all the way, or punch the button in short spurts to inch it back.The cup holders were redesigned into the console with adjustable grips and lighted for nighttime driving.The JBL Synthesis stereo is great.The fuel economy is 20- 21, which is similar to my 1996 model.But, I expect it will get better as it gets broken in. Interior needs XSP seats standard.
