Avoid at all cost!
By Rob on


1990 Toyota 4Runner SR5 V6 4dr SUV 4WD


The 3.0 L V6 is one of the worst engines ever made there are serious problems with the head gaskets. I own one and it has gone through 2 head gaskets in less than 200,000 miles at a cost of $1500 to $1800 each time. Do not buy these vehicles! Toyota will only replace the gasket one time but refuses to accept that it is a design flaw not only a gasket problem.

Worst Features

Crush for scrap and meltdown.
