2003 Toyota 4Runner Sport Edition 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


From snow storms in the Northeast to the deserts of the Southwest this truck does it all with ease. Even pulling a loaded 12x6 trailer cross country managing 17 mpg @ 75 mph didn't phase this truck. Rock solid engine, combined with exceptional ride and great efficiency for an SUV. My last SUV was a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the 4Runner's build quality and handling is significantly superior. Don't waste your time with a Ford or Jeep, buy the 4Runner you'll love it. The bottom line is that this truck outperforms in build, quality and performance all of it's competitors. If you're in the market for an SUV new or used it should be on top of your short list.

Best Features

Gutsy 6 cyl motor, great gas mileage (when not driving in So. Cal!), X-REAS Sport Enhancement Suspension & slide down rear window.

Worst Features

3K mile cross country trek proved the bucket seats could be a bit more comfortable, stock JBL radio in sport model is lacking and impossible to upgrade from the dealer due to dealer purchase packages & the continued rattling in the sunroof after several TSB updates and sunroof replacement.
