4-runner CRASH

I recently lost my 2004 beloved 4-runner in a crash and it was totaled...I cannot say enough good things about this vehicle that I owned for 6 years. It was an SR5 2 wheel drive, V6 and it served me exceptionally well....We never had any problems whatsoever with this truck. I planned on keeping it until it fell apart, however things turned out somewhat different. It had a smooth ride, great power, smooth transmission, GREAT Handling as I had to make very sharp swerves several times and it never even came close to tipping and rolling.....This vehicle was everything that we needed. It was a great grocery getter, dog hauler as I have 2 large dogs I have to take to the Vet....Just put them in the back and they were comfortable. We also went on vacation across country many times, and my teenager had plenty of room in the backseat. The ONLY item that I disliked on this truck was the AC/Heat knob.....It had so many settings, you got confused with it. I hated that....Other than that, this was a sweet all around multi-purpose vehicle that I will sorely miss....Plan on buying another one as soon as I locate a Certified, one owner one in my area that is similar to my other. I have no hesitation about buying another 4-runner. I would recommend these vehicles to anybody.....One other point that I might make is with 82,000 miles on this vehicle at the time of the crash, there was not one rattle in that truck. No dash noise, no bumpy noise when you hit pot holes, nothing. It was as solid as they come. Also had great gas mileage....averaged around 20-22 mpg city and highway. Adios my beloved truck :((((

2007 V8 Limited 4Runner. The most perfect vehicle I could have chose. Nice power, handles well, and is gorgeous. I traded in my beloved SS Impala, and I barely miss it. The 4Runner is a beast. Couldn't be happier.

4th 4Runner in a row

The 2007 4Runner I just purchased shows continued dedication to improvement in an already fine vehicle. While very happy with my new purchase, there are a few bones to be picked... 1. When will Toyota come out with a linear fuel gage instead of the long succession of fuel gages that drop rapidly to 3/4, level off for a bit, the resume the rapid fall around 1/4 that has afflicted all of my 4Runners and Camrys since the 80's? 2. The running boards serve no useful purpose other than to soil one's pant leg with dirt on exiting the vehicle. 3. My 2000 4Runner had three 12VDC outlets on the center lower dash. The 2007 has one in a doored compartment in the console. If you have a GPS, radar detector and cell phone and want to power all three at once, you have a problem. 4. Speaking of radar detectors, the visor on the 2007 is about 3/8 of an inch thicker than the visor in the 2000 4Runner, which is now too thick for visor mounting. The 2000's visor was a convenient "out of sight" and out of the sun mounting spot. On the plus side, the wider body, larger six cylinder engine, larger gas tank (at last), larger brakes, roomy cargo area and towing package are all items that I was looking for in the new 4Runner. The construction is faultless (Hey, it's a Toyota!). The interior is nicely appointed with controls where I would expect them to be. The in dash display for MPG, driving range, etc. is a welcome addition for this gadget junky. Storage compartments abound and all my stuff from the 2000 migrated with room to spare. I like the lower door / roof openings that don't drop a load of snow on you when you open them to exit. The aluminum wheels are a pleasant change from years of rusty steel wheels. Here's hoping the finish will stand up to the winter road salt better than the steel wheel finish did. Performance is great. Acceleration is smooth and powerful. The automatic transmission shifts so smooth that you don't know it's happening. The hill assist is great. Our fuel bill should drop now that my wife doesn't have to avoid some of our steeper hills with traffic lights at the top. Other than the picky stuff, it's a fine, reliable vehicle and fun to drive. The price is reasonable for what you get. I'd buy another when it's time.

This is my 3rd 4Runner. I love the Toyota product but they missed the mark on the interior design. There is there is only one (1) 12V outlet in the front. I run a radar detector and cell phone and have to use an adapter. There needs to be one in the back seat to assist with the kids' stuff (DVD Player / Hand held video games) The buttons to control the heat & AC are terrible! You have to take your eyes off the road to make a temp change or fan speed change. The controls for the windows are too low on the door - I prefer the earlier design. Cup holders in the rear doors are a waste. The only thing they can hold is a bottled water. Any more than that is a mess in the making. I will continue to purchase Toyota's based on their reliability, performance and value. I wish they would step-up on the interior design.

Great SUV

by from New Hampshire on October 3, 2013

Does everything right and rides nice...I have the Limited so it has the 4.7 V8...goes good. Traded a Highlander in for this...the Highlander was too yuppie for me. Not a true SUV.

In three years we've put on 80,000 miles on our V-8 model. No problems. The sound system sucks, however, in the SR5. We love the acceleration, especially since we have to drive 2 lane roads on a heavily travels hiway, which makes for easy passing. And we know the stability control works great, as we are often on icy roads! We love this car.

I have been looking for a great suv with comfort, reliability, class and performance. I was considering a bmw x5 4.6i which i test drove and liked very much. I also drove an 07' Tahoe LTZ which was great with every option available. As soon as a got behind the wheel of this beast I was blown away immediately by its luxury and class. It just felt like a more solid, quality built machine than any of the high end suv's i've driven. I ended up buying an 06' 4runner limited 4wd with a v8. The runner's all time 4wd and suspension is second to none! Worth every penny!
