Another Lemon

1999 Toyota 4Runner Limited 4dr SUV 4WD


This is the second 4Runner I have
bought in about 10 years, the first was
a 96 which i bought new as a base 4x4
model, and it was a horrible lemon,
clutch replaced 4 times by 30,000
miles. Smoke, all kinds of problems.
I then bought a Tahoe, and loved it,
but my wife couldn't drive it because
of size. So i sold it and bought this
99 4Runner Limited 4x4, this one had
60,000 miles on it, and is just as big
a piece of junk, the emergency brake
light keeps flashing, the truck doesn't
idle right in the cold, it smokes, the
tranny jerks when put in gear, bad
brakes, etc. Wouldn't buy another
unless it was one of the new designed
4runners with the V8s.

Best Features

Decent interior styling, looks good.

Worst Features

engine smokes, tranny going bad, rough idle, flashing emergency brake light, no power, uncomfortable seats, bad brakes, too light in rear end.
