2005 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
I shopped every SUV on the market and after multiple years of ownership I feel qualified to give this vehicle the review it deserves. There were a few drawbacks to this vehicle when comparing it to others, but I've come up with a few work-arounds: Cargo Space - lower than most SUV's this is easily and inexpensively fixed with the addition of a roof box or hitch mounted rack / storage. Leather Seats - a dealer add on! Confusing 4wd system - just earmark the page the description is on. Once you figure out when to drop it into Lo / lock the center differential / etc., you're going to love driving this thing in the snow. Dash - You'll get use to function over form.
4 Wheel Drive - great in rain and snow. Functionality - it can go anywhere. Gas Mileage - glad I stayed away from the Jeep!
