"The only downside is the mpg, but is definitely worth the price of gas. Is my hobby. I love driving this truck, and all my friends enjoy the ride in it as well.
It does well in the city, off road, and the highway. Plenty room to haul stuff, and when I used the trailer I don't feel much difference. Lots of power.
"This is the 2nd 4-Runner I've owned..first was a '97 that was totaled in an accident. I walked away with just scratches so I bought an 2001 to replace. Currently at 100K and just getting broke in - no major repairs or problems."
"My friend drives a 4Runner and that is how I came to like them. I bought mine a year ago, it was 5 years old at the time and it looked and drove like brand new. Today I am still extremely glad I bought it, I have had no trouble with it at all and I would say to anyone, in researching a used vehicle, it is important to look at how reliable the vehicle is, you should be able to find a rating that is derived from something like insurance and warranty claims per a certain number of vehicles like per 100 or per 1000. You will see that Toyota makes a very dependable vehicle, they are overbuilt, and they will not brake down on you, they are worth the money."
