"Bought it brand new back in 2008 and 134K miles later, still going strong! I've kept up with all the fluid changes and preventive maintenance...have no doubt WHATSOEVER this SUV will give me yet ANOTHER 134K miles. The only maintenance I've ever done to this truck is a change in the front wheel bearings (at 133K) and a new battery (in 2014). Who can complain about that? Why can't they make wives this reliable and low maintenance? ;)"

Excellent SUV

"I have had the 4 runner for 7 yrs and only has 38000 miles, all scheduled oil changes have been done by Dealer and the only major expense was 4 new Michelin tires. It has an excellent ride and I like that year styling compared to the 2015 models. Also it does have a high trade in value among SUVs."

"Bought my 2003 4Runner new and still love it as much as the day I bought. I was hooked from the moment I test drove it. Most comfortable vehicle ever. In all these years only had a couple of minor issues. It has 178,000 miles and still runs great. Because of it's age and driving between FL & NC several times a year, I have thought about trading for something smaller but really hate to give up such a great (paid for) vehicle. Hate I've never got to try it out in the snow. Only regret is that I didn't get a V-6 instead of V-8 because of gas mileage. Highly recommend 4Runner."

"Excellent road vehicle and it is adaptable for carrying lots of luggage,landscape supplies and even appliances and furniture. Holds 5 people and luggage for them but vehicle is filled to capacity. We especially love the boxy shape because it hold much more than most SUV's which are not as boxy. We've carried stoves and furniture for ourselves and grown children. Ours has factory tow package which we've used a few times. 4 Runner performs very well when towing a trailer or another vehicle across country. We've easily kept up with traffic on the highway and have usually achieved 22 - 23 MPG without trailer and about 18 MPG with trailer. These are better values than other SUV's we've owned."
