Absolutely a great SUV for the money
When I decided to buy a 4Runner, it was the '05 Sport that I wanted and it continues to impress. Found one used with 30k mi on it and now have 92k and it just keeps cruising. Reliable, great power, extremely comfortable seats that have held up perfectly and still to this day, no squeaks or rattles. I put on slightly larger tires than stock (only 1in), but gas mileage dipped. But a full time AWD V8 SUV isn't something somebody concerned w/ MPG should be looking for. If you want a truly reliable automobile that can tow, this is it. I change the oil/filters/fluids myself, and other than regularly scheduled maintenance, no issues. I avg only ~16mpg around town, but low 20's hwy. A great SUV
Awesome 4runner!
For me, the ride, power, comfort of this 4runner is perfect! I know at a cost over $40,000 new, this wouldn't be for me. But buying it at a great used price and it was well cared for by previous owner. It has 182,000 on it but you wouldn't know it. I think the one drawback to this would be the timing belt. On this engine damgage can occur if belt would break. From what I hear , it is costly to have done at a dealership to have the belt replaced. I plan on doing it myself however. I have driven it in slippery road conditions and it has performed excellent! Better then my 4wd Tacoma. Knowing what I know now...I would have had one sooner if the price was right.
Best SUV Made!
The 4runner is the last midsize REAL suv aside from the Grand Cherokee. This is my second Gen4, the two gripes you'll hear from me are: FIRST, Sunroofs in Gen4s take valuable head room, I'm 6'1 and I couldn't ride over bumps without hitting my head, if I stretched my head would touch. To add to the frustration of the sunroof I noticed water coming in while going through a car wash, $1,000 to replace!!!!!!! The only thing I dislike about my sunroof LESS 4runner is the rear seats don't recline in the 05's which they do at the refresh 06-09. SECOND, the gas tank is too small, maybe they ran out of room but it should be about 4 gallons bigger IMO.
