"We bought our 2000 4 runner with only 58,000 miles on it. Have had over $5,000 dollars in repair in 20,000 miles. Not really what we had in mind for a "reliable" car. Had a head gasket blow, had the catalytic converter go, gets poor gas mileage. All in all I wouldn't recommend this car to anyone in our experience."
"I have owned my '98 4Runner since new (9 1/2 Years) and have never had ANY problems!! I maintained it faithfully, and that is all I ever had to do to it. It still runs perfectly, and after 121k miles, it is not even middle-aged yet. It has been a remarkable vehicle, and is well deserving of the cult-like following 4Runners have."
"This 4Runner had never given me a problem and is the smoothest efficent SUV I have ever owned.
This is my second 4Runner, I bought the first year it was a whole body 4Runner in 1990. I put 150K on her and traded her in on this 1998 model and they just keep getting better. This one will be traded in for a 2008 as soon as they come out.
You will never be sorry you spent the money on a 4Runner. Good Luck to each of you."
