Pros: "Takes a licking, keeps on ticking"

Cons: "Automatics are gutless. Head gasket problems."

"At 327k, I finally had to invest in a new re-manufactured motor...she finally blew up. Too bad the 90-95 4Runners suffered from the head gasket/design flaw headaches. I'm at 380k+ now, and the "Black Pearl" is as strong as ever. I'm glad I went with the 5spd. manual trans makes all the difference in the world. Probably 80k off road Baja miles. Toyota should make a commercial about me and give me a new 4Runner at 1/2 price!"

"I bought this car new in 1992. It's never left me stranded, and repairs have been minimal. Mileage is close to what it was when it was new. I've carted all sorts of stuff with it, and towed a trailer multiple times. Given that it was built on a truck body, it's reasonably comfortable, even for long drives. Great vehicle."

"My white Toyota 4Runner limited edition has actually been bought off of the showroom floor at the dealership back in 1995. She she was a beauty back in its day. It was bought for about $34,000 and ever since today, she has had no problems! Not even the breaks or engine has ever failed on us. The only issue I had were just the rusting that occurs overtime underneath the car. Otherwise, the car has many things installed including tinted light brown windows, bass system, dvd system, window deflectors, fender trims, and side steps. Not only that, but with michelin snow tires, it CAN, and I repeat, it can tow a Hummer out of snow! She rides through huge piles of snow every winter easily rarely swerving. I love it and I would never sell it. Even the dealership offered the value for a tradin value at $7500! Unfortunately, the car is now considered a complete loss from being parked on the street. I miss my 4Runner!"
