Bought with 73k.great vehicle to haul the kids around.I chose the V8 due to its power.The gas mileage with a V6 was just 2mpg less.Go with the V8.Drove from Las Vegas to San Francisco,what an awesome ride.Eats up potholes.I liked the 4runner so much, I bought my wife a 2007 4runner sport.
Built to take a pounding. V8.Rear ac. Stock sound system does not sound so bad.
Entering the truck takes some getting used to. Cup holder are worthless unless it is a big gulp drink.
