1996 Toyota 4Runner Limited 4dr SUV 4WD


I bought the 4Runner in 1999, when it was 3 years old with 53k on it. Now it has 191k miles and I am very impressed with this truck. It drives as well as the day I bought it. During the 8 years I've owned it, it had no problems whatsoever! This car did not see the dealership unless I took it there for regular maintenance. It's extremely solid and reliable, starts even in the very cold Chicago winters (I keep it outside) and it goes everywhere thanks to a very potent 4x4 system. The paint is glossy even now, after all these years. There is no rust. I cannot believe how strong this car is and I think it will last me another 100K miles.

Best Features

Simple inside, without too many bells and whistles. Strong, reliable, sure footed. 4x4 is great, at the push of a button.

Worst Features

Nothing for this year. More horsepower came with the later models.
