"I love my 4runner! I have owned this car for 2.5 years and have had no problems with it at all. Great to drive, awesome in the snow (always keeps amazing traction no matter what the conditions), and affordable maintenance."
"This SUV is the best, perhaps I should say, the greatest SUV I have ever owned. Only thing I would change is the "mickey mouse mirrors", They are too big and block left hand turns from where I sit. I am average height. I have never had a problem with the SUV whatsoever, not even a hiccup! Knock on wood!"
"I was a Chevy guy before this Runner, but this thing is dream never been to the shop except for routine maintenance. most versatile vehicle ever, and you wont lose a ton of money with excellent resale. 4runners will run 4ever"
"I owned a 04 Mazda Tribute before buying my 4Runner. I liked my Tribute, but I love my 4Runner. I have always wanted a 4Runner, but just didn't think I would have one this soon. I love driving it and it also looks great!! I will definitely buy another one."
"I've recently been wooed by the 4door Jeep Wrangler's styling and was tempted to trade my 4Runner in but I cannot recall one bad experience throughout my three years as a "Toyota Family member". I own a 2004 6cyl sr5 and will continue to Happily own it for many years to come they can keep the jeep I have peace of mind."
"This by far is the best suv we have ever owned. Hubby has not had to do anything but the normal maintenance. I don't know that I will ever drive anything but a Toyota. Ok, maybe a Lexus if the Hubby will buy it for me!!!!!
Thanks Toyota for a dependable SUV!!"
"i had this Suv for 1 year now, i got the v8 and i get about 12mpg with the A/C on in stop and go traffic . i get about 16 hwy . i got 30000 miles on it and i bought it new with less then 10 miles on it. and i had not 1 problem . well 1 small problem the rear wiper dose not work some times. vary strong and powerfull v8!!!!!"
"Bought the 2003 4Runner used w/ 58,000 miles...now has 122,000 miles. Very reliable, I have done most regular maintainence on the vehicle because I plan to drive it till the wheels fall off.
Strength: Power, reliability, ride, safety, control, towing strength and handling, handles GREAT in snow and mud.
Weakness: Brakes wear out quickly (more than other SUV/Trucks I've owned...and yes, I am hard on the brakes!), my driver's seat squeaks like mad - I haven't heard others with this problem...must be just mine!"
"For a long time loved the Nissan Frontier, but test drove my 2006 4 runner V8 and knew the Frontier wasn't nothing like this. Drives smoothly and has some awesome power! Wouldn't trade it for anything..."
