Great Ride

1997 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4dr SUV 4WD


This SUV remains a great ride with over 174K miles on the odometer. Clutch replaced at 144K miles and just swapped-out the shocks within the last month. I stand a 6'2" and fit and picked this vehicle because it drove well and I fit in it. Overall design and reliability of the vehicle is really outstanding and has withstood the test of time. No plans to trade this in for something newer as it is a pleasure to drive. 4-wheel drive has taken me up some advanced trails into the mountains, but it's a daily driver.

Best Features

4 wheel drive on the fly, rear window that goes down, handles like a passenger car, good instrumentation visual on the dash (save the cup holder on the dash). Ride is very comfortable for long distances. Rear- seat foot heaters.

Worst Features

Cup holder on the dash blocks climate control slides. Power antenna has a nylon draw that snaps about every two years leaving the antenna inoperable.
