1997 Toyota 4Runner Limited 4dr SUV 4WD


Purchased this truck two months ago and am very satisfied with it. The highway mpg is 20 but city driving returns terrible mileage, at about 14. Hesitant before finally deciding to buy due to its high mileage, but after starting driving, it is very satisfying, particularly the engine. Some interior rattling over bumps but highway cruising is fairly pleasant. 4WD is noticeably more smooth and accelerate more powerfully than rear wheel drive, but probably consumes more gas. Perhaps due to its high mileage, when 4WD is engaged, the turning of front wheels can't reach maximum angle. I plan to drive until the truck dies - if gas price allows.

Best Features

Despite of some rattling, the solid feeling when driving. Acceleration (compared with my Infiniti G20). Looks. Spacious seats and luggage room.

Worst Features

Gas mileage, the only thing for this perfect truck.
