2008 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


After 256,000 trouble free miles, it was time to replace our '98 4Runner Ltd 4WD with a slightly used 2008 SR5 4WD model. We are very happy with the '08 4Runner's comfort and style. Haven't taken it far off-road yet but the South Texas "wet season" is in full force and all of the techy new traction controls, hill assist, and other systems will soon get put through their paces. My only complaint is that the newer 'Runner seems almost too civilized. Gone are the metal chrome bumpers and the skid plates seem wimpy. Looked at a FJ Cruiser but it had too many blind spots and horrible turning radius.

Best Features

Reliability. More passenger room and cargo tie downs. More HP and torque Much better fuel economy than the '98. Off road ability Tight turning radius.

Worst Features

More ground clearance. Heavier gauge skid plates Relocate the power outlet and audio input jack.
