158,000 mile 4 runner
By AAW on


1996 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4dr SUV 4WD


Except for a head gasket recall paid
for by Toyota this vehicle has been
great. The rear seat is uncomfortable
for adults & teens on long drives.
Rear seat riders cause a harsh ride
over bumps as well. With AC running
gets 18/21 MPG. Without AC gets 19/24
MPG. No problem driving around in 20
inch snow. Pulls my 2,800 lb
boat/trailer OK. Pleasure to drive.
Don't like the unconventional tail
lamp bulbs - (expensive at
dealerships). Too bad Toyota hasn't
got the Jade Green Metallic paint and
good intruments on new 4runner models.

Best Features

Good safe feeling on long trips. Cruise control, sunroof, retractable covered cargo area canopy, ABS, cushioned steering wheel.

Worst Features

Fused cigarette lighter; it has inline link protection. More backseat comfort and improved loaded ride.
