Lived up to my expectation!!

by The MITCHELLS from Cadyville, NY on Tue Oct 25 2016

We purchased a 2016 Toyota SR5 Premium 4Runner from Ali Kamal at Handy Toyota in St.Albans Vermont. What a great experience from start to finish! We would recommend Ali and the entire staff at the dealership for anyone looking for a vehicle and get great customer service at the same time!! Great vehicle with a great experience!! Thanks Ali and the Handy team!! Pete & Jackie Mitchell

More improvements needed.

by SixpackMk3 from Houston TX on Wed Jun 13 2018

I bought the 4Runner because of reliability but wanted simple options that most vehicles come with standard, which I couldn’t get unless I bought the Limited model. Even then, still no remote start, no other model has push button start other than Limited. Wheels could be a little wider for better handling for sure. Feels like it’s going to tip over sometimes with a cross wind. 3rd row seating is definitely only for kids. Rubber inserts in cup holders are worthless. They literally have to be glued down so it doesn’t come off stuck to your cup. Navigation is pointless and the screen could definitely use an update from the early 2000s look. It’s definitely a hog and totally not good on gas mileage. If you get on the gas too much, you can smell your catalytic converters cause it smells like raw eggs. Halogen headlights and fog lights are a joke. Way too much chrome on the limited model. Only good thing it has going for it is the reliability can’t be beaten, sound system is pretty amazing, and it will hold its value better than anything else on the road. I’m selling mine to buy a truck though, since the 4Runner doesn’t really have much of a towing capacity either.

Great value and reliable

by DOQ from Austin, TX on Sun May 19 2019

Low maintenance with regular oil changes and filter changes. The 4Runner has plenty of room for the family, great for towing and off road capability.

The 4Runner with the third row seat is perfect!

by Bren92 from Clarksville on Mon Dec 11 2017

The Toyota 4Runner has room to take the family with the ease getting in and out on trips. When not in use, the third row folds flat and is great for groceries and shopping. The ride is smooth and with the great sound system, enjoyable for everyone.

Great truck

by AJ from on Wed May 17 2017

It's a good SUV that is reliable and came equipped with many nice options. The vehicle handles more like a pick up than an SUV.

4-runner

by TAStuder from Houston,TX on Mon Apr 10 2017

4-runners are great vehicles. I owned a 2006 for six years, and it sold in one day. Reliable, well built, sturdy vehicles.

Great so far!

by SJH from on Wed Mar 29 2017

Bought it 3 weeks ago and really like it. It handles very well and has great pickup. I could see driving this for hours without stopping. I used to have a 2003 Ford Expedition so this was a bit of a downsize. I probably won't be able to haul as much in the back but that's okay.

Love our new 4Runner!!

by Tracy from Thornton, Co on Fri Apr 21 2017

Can't say enough good things about our 4Runner - meets all of our needs as an on-the-go family with busy teenagers and 2 giant breed dogs. Tows our fishing boat like a champion! Only negative is the headlights don't automatically turn on and off - minor inconvenience we've already adjusted to:)
