2005 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


I love this truck. It has off-road capability, but it handles and rides on the road like a dream. I bought the sport model and the build quality and the way it feels is well worth the price. It doesn't have as much room as the others in it's class, but I can still take the wife, kid and dog and tons of stuff. This is going to replace a 98 explorer. Granted the explorer is 6 years old, I didn't have the confidence for safety, quality and reliability in the Ford as I do in this Toyota. When people found out I had one, everyone had a story about the incredible reliability and it's apparent in the way this car drives and feels. Tons of standard advanced features, check out toyotas site.

Best Features

Styling in and out, JBL 10spkr WOW!, X- REAS supsension is incredible, VSC, Brake Assist, Off-Road capability, On- Road demeaner, Smoothest V8 ever... fuel economy is better than some V6s, 5 Speed automatic, ergonomics, tons of storage compartments, electric rear window, quality, quality, quality

Worst Features

I wish it was a little bigger (cargo), The seats are kinda close to the floor (although adjustable), Satellite Radio was an extra 700, I like the shifter on the column to save space. Would have liked Red as an option. Wish it could go 2WD instead of AWD (save on wear). I Love this truck
