1998 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4dr SUV 4WD


Purchased this vehicle on eBay with
90K miles for $10850. In the 3 months
that I've owned my 4Runner I've driven
it almost 4K trouble-free miles. No
rattles, no broken interior pieces,
paint is awesome, and the vehicle runs
flawlessly. Transmission shifts
smoothly but is on a flexible hanger
system which causes it to move around
as evidenced by the gear levers
moving;it also appears to build up
tension on stops and then releases
when you move forward...this is
apparently normal for these cars. Ride
is quiet and smooth; a very
comfortable interior. Haven't used 4WD
yet. 16" wheels are really nice. The
crazy aftermarket alarm may have to
go. Fuel economy is B+/A- (17
overall/21.5 on highway).

Best Features

Quality of build, paint, and materials used. Sliding moonroof, 16" wheels, and chrome package a must. Cruise control easy to operate and very smooth. Good looking vehicle even 6 years later.

Worst Features

Yeah, yeah, cupholders in front of everything important...I just use the holders in the back of the center console (usually used by rear seat passengers). Seems pointless to comment on improvements to a vehicle that is into a new generation. If you are thinking about it...get one. Do a CarFax.
