1998 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4dr SUV 4WD


love this rig! even with all the SUV
bashing pressure, i'm still
proud to drive my 4Runner. rugged and
high with a solid, smooth ride, it's
incredibly reliable and ready for
anything, with never a problem!

i started out leasing, and when my lease
ran out i was faced with leasing the
2000 model, which had been re-styled
more like a soccer mom SUV, yuk! so i
bought out my lease on the 98 and now
will drive it forever.

it still looks/acts new at 93K miles; i
do all the recommended maintenance and
all i've replaced is tires and
waterpump! and even after 6 winters in
vt, still no sign of rust! wow

Best Features

stable, safe ride with great visibility, tight handling, comfortable seating, great sound system, and the rear compartment is big enough for my 100 lb dog to move around in.

Worst Features

cupholders are a little too springy and need to be relocated. hey who forgot the heated seats??
