2004 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Our second Toyota. Previous Toyota had
154k miles on it with NO significant
repairs whatsoever; car would have
easily gone another 100k. The 4Runner
clearly has the same quality build
feel to it. Seating is very
comfortable. Ride and handling is
pleasant. Good looks, both inside and
out. When you plunk down 30k for a
vehicle you better do your homework!
With the 4Runner you get a solid, all-
around vehicle with minimal risk.


Best Features

Exterior looks. Climate control. True off-road capability. Towing ability. External temp gauge.


Worst Features

Disappointed with base level in-dash CD stereo. Sound is bassy and overall muddy. Am adding a direct iPod hook up. Hopefully that will help. Don't know how the JBL system compares. Stereo sound should be better tuned to cabin.

2004 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Excellent truck for the price, and all
that Toyota quality. One outstanding
issue is with the drivers seat. It
seems to disengage itself from whatever
position you locked it in. It's like a
little click and it happens every time
you accelerate or brake ie; motion
makes this happen.


Best Features

Styling, power, instrumentation


Worst Features

Obviously the seat, and the comfort is an issue but you get used to it, plus there are all kinds of cushion and back supports out on the after market.

2004 Toyota 4Runner Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Great Power, awesome handling w/xreas
suspension, superb interior
acoutrements, jammin jbl stereo, billy
goat off-road performance, exceptional
build-quality, industry leading
reliability. Love the Stratosphere Mica
with the silver accent roof rack and
bumpers. Beautiful 17" alloys look
great. Dials and gauges easy to read
and operate, and light up beautifully at
night. Rack & Pinion steering is
precise and tight. 4WD system works
extremely well on gravel roads and on
steep, rocky descents w/low-range mode.
4Runner has the best combination of
on/off road performance, reliability and
build quality of any SUV-period.


Best Features

Torquey v-8, X-reas suspension, build quality, reliability, interior and exterior styling, heated seats, turn signal side mirrors, moonroof, JBL 10 speaker stereo rocks, granite trim, quality padded dash, nice instrument cluster with illuminated red needle indicators. 4WD low range.


Worst Features

Needs at least 3 outlets in front for two phones and radar detector for road trips. The 115v outlet is okay, but Motorola phone power cord has too large of plug-in adaptor to fit well. Toyota, you got it right on my Sequoia w/3 outlets in front. Power outlet in rear will be rarely used.
