Pros: "Very reliable, low maintenance"

Cons: "Still drives like a truck, little noisy in the cab"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I've had the car for years. 210K miles and believe it or not, everything works. Went up to about 200K with no serious repairs, no surprises or road break downs. If you can find one with 150-180K miles and looking to save money, its a good find. Have been off road, has good 4wd and locking deferential in case you get into trouble. This one still have the chrome rear bumper, the car is attractive, it doesn't have that cheap plastic look to it. The brakes aren't as good as the newer ones and the car is maybe a little under powered, it lacks good passing acceleration. You need to be patient with it. As all 4 runners, its not a great tow vehicle but should do ok with smaller boats and trailers."

The 4runner has been a very dependable, solid car.

Pros: "Dependability, Off-road Capabilities, Towing"

Cons: "Vehicle control in wind, unsightly interior panel"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"This car will get you from point A to B with no issue for many years and miles. I am at 250,000 miles and there is plenty of life left on the motor and transmission. The vehicle is still a beast off-road whether it is 2WD or not. I have yet to get stuck in this vehicle and I have taken it through some rough terrain. Also the safety ratings of this vehicle are great, just look up some IIHS videos on Youtube. The only thing you need to watch for with this is some of the electronic devices can be spotty. Nearly every 4runner of this style I have seen, the clock on the dash went out. Another common electronic issue is the radio backlight flickering as well as the temperature controls being "difficult" to change. The vehicles interior design does leave something to be desired(Oak paneling). When driving with a cross wind on the highway, this vehicle will get blown around. Also the motor is slightly under-powered but super reliable. Overall this is a great vehicle that you can depend on."

Pros: "reliable and safe"

Cons: "check out design defect on 2wd 2 piece drive shaft"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"The 2wd 4runner has a design defect in the drive shaft. It will cause the rear axle wheel bearings and aventually cause the tranmission to go out if the drive shaft is not replaced. Other than this it's a great vehicle."

"My husband and I currently own "5" Toyota 4Runners! WE have a 1996, 1998, 2000, 2001 & a 2002! All 3rd generation! My husband hit a patch of ice & rolled the 2001. It was just about to turn over 300k miles and was still running strong! He walked away without a scratch! My daughter was driving the 2000. She has hit 2 deer, has had 2 accidents that were kind of bad. The first accident she only got a busted lip and was sore. The second accident she walked away without a scratch,just sore!(thank God) These vehicles are the best! I will not even get rid of the wrecked one if that tells you anything!"

Loaded up for journey to Wisconsin.

"My mechanic tells me that mechanically it is in great shape. I have driven across country to Wisconsin and back with a canoe on top. I have driven 4 wheel drive only roads in Death Valley, the Sierra Mountains, the Nevada desert and other places. It handles very well in rough conditions. I do not plan to ever sell it. If I am ever fortunate enough to be able to afford another vehicle my son wants it to do some off road customizing on it."
