2003 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Unbelievable. Excellent SUV with
plenty of power and "foo-foo" stuff
for comfort. Loaded my SR5 with
leather, premium sound, etc. and still
paid $1000 below invoice!!! Previous
Jeep owner and this truck BLOWS it out
of the water!


Best Features

Premium 6 disc in dash system! Interior illumination! Back window that goes down!! Rear-seat audio is the bomb!


Worst Features

Add lights to ALL window switches. Keyless remote needs a power UP for the back window...not just DOWN!

Review

Fun to drive!! Very resonsive. Plenty
of towing power even driving thru the
mountains. Only negative is a rattle in
the sunroof took 4 visits to the
dealership to get the problem resolved.


Best Features

Rear seat headphones is a must for drivers with pre-teens.


Worst Features

Six way power driver seat needs to be standard option. Every other option is availble.

Review

Have owned the 2003 4Runner since last
November, and have continually been
impressed with it. The price was fair,
it's built closer the way a SUV is
supposed to be built (solid frame, sold
axle(s), ground clearance, low range,
limited slip, etc), and it can tow a
decent amount. I've been off-road a
few times, and it performs well. I've
towed a good number of times, usually
about 3500 pounds, and it does so
without complaint. It's a highly
recommended vehicle on my list.
It should be noted that we did
experience a length list of early-
production problems.


Best Features

V8 power, stout frame


Worst Features

Would be nice to have max torque output at a lower RPM. Also, interior could stand to use a lot less painted plastic.
