Rock Solid Performer & a Keeper!
By RB & PB on


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


Between my wife and I, we have owned many vehicles. If we had to pick "one" to live with from the many...this would be it. Not flashy (frame/ladder design versus newer design) - don't hear much about it in the media and the limited version is a little pricey. However, this is a safe (full compliment of airbags), reliable, go anywhere, do anything (towing, off road or a wedding), solid performer. We plan on owning this one for a long time - and we can because of reliability. We have had no issues besides routine maintenance (brakes, battery, timing belt change). Sad that Toyota no longer offers this rig w/a V8. Will have to look at the Lexus variant when its time to purchase in the future.

Best Features

V8 power! Rear view camera, heated seats (for the wife), navigation and as smooth as most car-like SUV on hwy.

Worst Features

Not much...maybe cooled seats (will go to the Lexus for that though), more efficient V8 (more HP to match torque w/ mpg), bluetooth/aux input.
