2004 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


I purchased my V8 4WD 4runner new in Aug 2004. I now have 89,000 hard on and off-road miles on it and it still runs like new. No problems, no repairs, just scheduled maintenance. I had Toyota install a Readylift 2.5" front lift kit, Bilstein HD shocks, 32" BF Goodrich T/A tires and a TRD air filter. I highly recommend these upgrades for off-road use. The increase in performance is amazing. Average gas mileage is 18.1 mpg. My previous 4runners had approx 400,000 miles when I sold them. The 2004 is much better than previous models. I plan to keep this car forever.

Best Features

V8 engine and drive train. Overall on and off-road performance and interior comfort.

Worst Features

An adjustable passenger's seat and more interior storage space. Also, a cargo basket as part of the roof rack would be nice.
