A Tough SUV
By tree_guy_bob on


2002 Toyota 4Runner Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


I purchased my '02 4Runner 4WD Limited when it was about 2 years old. I purchased from an acquaintance who I knew took virtually perfect care of all of his vehicles. I purchased this 4Runner as I am one of the very few folks who truly needs 4WD and uses it regularly. I had had previous positive experiences with Toyota 4WD vehicles, and liked the aspects of balance, ground clearance, true box frame, two speed transfer case... in short, I wanted a small truck. So far, so good. My 4Runner still looks and runs virtually like new. Oil changes with Mobil 1 every 5K, plus meticulous maintenance will hopefully allow this vehicle to last for many years.

Best Features

Tight, absolutely rattle free vehicle! Quiet!

Worst Features

Better mileage would be the biggest bonus. I average 21.7 MPG, with an all time high of 23.6 MPG, and lows hovering around 16 MPG when towing a 5500 lb boat.
