4 Runner Transmission Problems
By Ken on
Vehicle2000 Toyota 4Runner Limited 4dr SUV 4WD
ReviewCar was a great car until about 70K. Had a couple little issues. One is a rattle that we have been unable to solve somewhere in Dash. Car is slightly underpowered. V6 strains over those hills when you get any kind of steep roads like Flagstaff, AZ or mountains west of Denver, Etc. Shutting overdrive off helps immensely. At 81K would not come out of 4 wheel drive. Replaced 4x4 actuator in transfer case ($1500). At 90K same problem, dealer says it needs a whole new transfer case costing ($3700). This will now become a 2wd 4 runner until its sold. I am told by dealer Toyota will do nothing. Very disappointed in the quality. Any car that u have major stuff before 120K is a sub par.
Best FeaturesInterior comfort. Great for long trips with family. 4 wheel drive when conditions get slippery.
Worst FeaturesBetter reliability with 4 wheel drive
