Maybe saved my life

2008 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

In June of 2013, a full-sized crew cab Chevy pickup ran a red light and hit my left front corner.
My left rear corner swung around and his his R. R. side.
$23,000 body damage to 4runner, and they couldn't open the hood.
Front end was bent about 10" to the right.
Adjuster said the 4runner probably saved me from serious injury or worse.
I came out without a scratch.


The dealer found me an '08 with only 29k miles- it's virtually identical, but grey not black.


It's been a great vehicle.
It's been elk hunting in CO, fishing on logging roads in Canada, and through some bad winters in MN.
Excellent vehicle.
I get 19 mpg unless towing a heavy boat, (16).
24 at 65 on the freeway.

Update: 4/16
4Runner now has 90k miles. I have still had zero repairs. Steering and suspension still feel tight. I have one spot of rust on the driver's side door frame.
