Best SUV I have owned

1999 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4dr SUV 4WD


I bought a '99 4WD SR5 in 12/02. Since
then almost 30k miles later, it has
been trouble-free. I added
fender flares, and have noticed much
less road debris on the sides since I
put them on. I also added acc fog
lights which much improved highway
visibility when I can't put high-beams
on. Wish I had leather, and you can't
add power seats to an SR5, so finding
used leather replacements is near
impossible. Only complaint is rear
end slide in any light rain. As far as
fun-to-drive and reliability, I love
this truck and would by another.

Best Features

Very capable 4WD in heavy, wet, east- coast snow. Styling, lots of cargo room, roof rack with bars that cross the roof from left to right (unlike lots of SUV's out there.) I can go pretty much anywhere I want in foul weather(as long as 4WD is on :)

Worst Features

More power (fixed in '03+ models), power seat option on SR5, better rear shocks (they are starting to show signs of sagging at 62k miles.) Rear- differential lock should be standard on all models (sliding sideways trying to turn from a standstill is no fun)
