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


Been very happy with the 4Runner. Bought it due to the V8 for towing our travel trailer. The motor is excellent in general, temp. gauge doesn't even move going up steep, long passes in 100+ (40+Celsius) pulling our 4500# travel trailer. The only complaint I have is that it is slightly lacking in power to pull our trailer in windy, open environments. Seems like I need to keep the tranny in 3rd to go up any slight incline or against strong winds. Otherwise it's been an excellent truck. Wish it came with 4.10 gears rather than 3.73; would most likely solve the underpowered issue but unfortunately decrease fuel economy. Generally excellent truck that I would recommend to anyone.

Best Features

Smooth ride, reliability, silky smooth engine and transmission.

Worst Features

4.10 gears, but this is debatable. Bigger brakes that don't wear out as easily when pulling a mid-sized travel trailer.
