Great SUV, go anywhere

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


I love my 4runner. I owned a 99 Land Rover Discover II and bought this 4 runner used with 11000 on it. So far, it has only been to the shop because of a querky sun roof gear, but it was fixed, no questions asked. The suspension is the XReas and does great, but makes a noise when you hit a bump making a sharp turn going slowly. The other odd thing is that it squeals when it warms up, but that is a V6 issue and is common with all V6's supposedly, only happens for maybe 30 seconds, and isn't noticeable inside the vehicle because of the excellent noise reduction Toyota has in the vehicle. I love the SUV, recommend it to everyone and I say, great job Toyota, oh yeah V6 acts like a V8.

Best Features

Power, quiet, 4 wheel drive, comfort inside, excellent ride, handling, features, style, Sport Edition a must, seats (dark granite cloth), space in second row.

Worst Features

get rid of the squeal during warm ups, improved sun roof, make satellite a manufacture option, pull in the front bumper just a little in the next design.
