1995 Toyota 4Runner SR5 V6 4dr SUV 4WD


What we have here, is a peppy V6 on
light truck chassis...squashed with a
giant turtle-shell body. The result...a
gasping, whimpering, gutless-guzzler,
that can barely make it onto the
freeway via the onramp. Floor it, and
you know it just cost you a dollar.

The vehicle does not feel stable on
slick roads, and even with a new set of
Michelins from costco, my 87 Honda
feels much safer.

Of course we bought it for it's comfort
and looks. The interior creature
comforts are very nice and practical.
All electrical is flawless, and
mechanically, exceptional. It's has an
overall appealing quality, but I would
stay away from this one.

Best Features

The interior seating for the driver and the passenger are very comfortable, and it feels fun to drive (except when it rains of course...then you become really scared). The stereo/cd is high quality, and the climate control has worked flawlessly.

Worst Features

Toyota needs to either turbo-charge this V6, or put the Tundra V8 under the hood. I believe starting in 1996, the horsepower was increased considerably on these 4-runner engines.
