2000 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4dr SUV 4WD


I have had great fortune with this
vehicle. It has been incredibly
reliable. The only parts that have been
replaced in 75000 miles are 1) the
heater fan (a "critter" made a nest in
there) and 2) the front brake rotors.
I'm thinking of selling it now and
buying a the 2004 version, just so I can
tow a trailer with the optional V8. I
hope they never discontinue this model.

Best Features

The lowering rear window (by dashboard button or key fob) was a selling point. Cargo that has shifted in transit can be re-positioned before you open the upswinging hatch. My wife loves the 4-wheel drive.

Worst Features

The ride is bumpy, like you'd expect from a truck. Sometimes I like that, but it can get tiresome. The seats are a little short, which get uncomfortable on long trips. The cabin is narrow, but that's already been fixed in the wider new models. More leg room would be appreciated also.
