2005 Toyota 4Runner Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Bought this used with 89,000 miles from a friend who took very good care of the vehicle.
Can't be happier with my new purchase, extremely reliable, no rattles or squeaks.
Gas mileage is the only sticking point, but was expected when purchasing the vehicle.
Surprisingly, I'm getting better gas mileage than what I expected.
The trip computer on the car states 21.9 - 22 MPG, but calculating the mileage by hand is about 19 - 20.5 mpg.
That's with 50/50 city/hwy driving.
Navigation is decent, slightly cumbersome system, not as easy as Garmin.
Leather is like-new and heat seaters are amazing!

Best Features

Leather, navigation, sunroof, stock sound w/navigation, gas mileage (considering the vehicle), 4X4 capabilities, seat heaters.

Worst Features

For a car built in 2005 as a "Limited" model with most all the bells and whistles, I'm surprised to find a lack of audio jack for the navigation system, bluetooth, or XM radio. Currently, trying to find the best method to play my iPhone/iPod through the sound system without being an FM transmitter.
