Not for gravel roads
By Finn on


2002 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


We purchased this vehicle because we live in the mountains and need a lot of ground clearance and off road handling. The only area in which this car has disappointed me is in it's off road handling, which unfortunately in our situation, is a huge chunk of time. When we purchased this vehicle we were aware of it's "truck like chassis" but this car is downright scary to drive on our gravel (sometime washboard) roads. I'm not going any faster than 20-25 miles per hour, usually less. This car fish tails or skids over the slightest washboard. I have talked to other people in this area with the same problem.

Love the looks, but obviously doesn't take precedence over safety. Travels well in snow.
