Best car I have ever had! As long as you keep up on the maintenance it runs like new. I have not had a lot of work done on it. It is really practical for all our family needs. We are able to transport the kids to and from wherever they are going with plenty of extra space for gear, groceries, you name it.

I have not had any real problems with my 2002 Toyota 4Runner other than the normal wear for a vehicle of this age. It has been an extremely reliable vehicle. My Toyota 4Runner is soon going to turn over to 400, 000 miles. We have decided to keep this vehicle as long as it continues to run.

The 4runner performance is great. Downside is gas usage. After 16 years the ac still works as foes the radio and CD player. I have very little repair cost. I however which I could afford to get the newer model. I enjoy road trips with the family. Toyota did a good job building the 4runner.

Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
02V268
Summary:
On certain passenger vehicles, if the vehicle is driven under repeated start and stop operation in low ambient temperatures and in deep snow, there is a possibility that snow could accumulate in large quantities inside the rear wheel and freeze. The snow frozen inside the wheel could contact the rear brake line during wheel rotation. If this condition occurs frequently, the rear brake line could be damaged, which could result in leakage of brake fluid, causing a decrease in brake effectiveness.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will replace the rear brake lines.The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during November 2002. Owners should contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.
