We bought this vehicle new in 1992, on the same day we bought a new 1992 Bass Tracker. Now has 242,000 miles on it. I expect to get at least 300k and probably more. They don’t make them as stout as they used to!
i bought one of these 4 runners with only 130k miles on it and it ran like a top! no leaks, didnt eat oil, stearing was fairly tight, and it just went! not only was it built great, it looks good too! unfortunately, i ended up totalling the thing. but it i were to happen to be driving anything else, i dont think i would be writing this review right now. i rolled it and smashed down on the driver side, but it only caved in about 6 inches. luckily i landed on the wheels, but it was also able to get towed by straps and roll away! the chassis is still straight and the motor still cranked over. so its a very safe vehicle. great family car, or new drivers vehicle.

I bought this rig with 240,000k already on it. It was a repo, so naturally I had quite a few things to fix. After that I couldn't be happier with this vehicle its plenty roomy for the wife and kids, its safe to have em' in. and when they're not in it its a lot of fun to take through the mud holes (18 inches deep and never been stuck).
The Five speed manual is great I like the rear heater, and the inside switch to roll down the tailgate window.
Move the cup holder, it's useless. and Move the clock I'm always looking around the steering wheel at it. oh yea and instead of coil spring suspension use leaf springs they're cheaper to lift.
