Rattle Rattle Squeak Squeak

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


The sunroof rattles like it has marbles in it. The left front rubber insulator between body and frame squeaks when it's cold. The lumbar motor in driver's seat went out and was $750 to replace. There was a support tapping me in the back, so it had to be fixed. It has been to dealer for the noise and is still not fixed. The seat is ok now. I am running H/T tires and handling is great. Radio still sounds great with it's 10 speakers. Handles and rides well on trips, but rattles from sunroof will drive you crazy.

Best Features

Handling, radio, mileage (22 HWY and if you slow down to 60-65, you may get almost 25 mpg.) Towing performance is satisfactory with a Sea Ray 18 behind it.

Worst Features

Fix the sunroof noise and frame squeaks permanently, not just for a while.
