1996 Toyota 4Runner Limited 4dr SUV 4WD


I bought the vehicle used with 105000 miles, it now has 122000. Built like a tank, very reliable and sturdy. Not a spot of rust anywhere except on the rear bumper (see other reviews) – nothing major though – clean it every few months with chrome polish and it’s hardly noticeable. Put new Michelin CrossTerrain tires on it, which perform very well and are extremely quiet. Also installed a K&N air filter, which increased power noticeably. Otherwise, have done nothing to it besides change the oil (synthetic blend). Based on other reviews and the way it's run the last 18 months, I would be very surprised if it doesn't go to at least 250000 miles.

Best Features

Reliability, better mileage than expected, very sturdy -- no squeaks, rattles etc.

Worst Features

As many others have noted, what in the world were they thinking when they designed the front cup-holder??!!
