1997 Toyota 4Runner Limited 4dr SUV 4WD


This is uncompromised quality at it's
best. Yes, a bit costly given the fact
it's a 4 x 4, however it drives and
rides very well. We purchaced it new in
the Caribbean and keep it when we moved
back to the States. It's been
everywhere, but never in the shop for
repairs. Wow! Look, I traded a 97 525i
BMW that did nothing but swallow green
100 dollar bills ever since was
purchased new. German craft is crapppp!

Best Features

High clearance with aftermarket 265Lt 16 Pirellis. Great ride and plenty of room for a family of three and pets. Excellent paint job. Crafted in Japan model. Also, installed aftermaker premium brake pads (excellent brake response)

Worst Features

Rear cupholders suck, the plastic is weak and delicate (not kids proof). Front cup holders interfer with room temperature controls and radio. Leather upholstery could be of better quality. Not many complaints after all
