It drives smoothly and is very reliable.

2003 Toyota 4Runner Limited

The performance of my vehicle is nearly perfect. It drives extremely smoothly. The brakes are amazing. It is my most reliable vehicle that I drive. The inside is very spacious. Up to 5 people are able to fit in the vehicle. The back seats fold down giving the back even more room that it already has. The vehicle has a sunroof, which is very enjoyable especially to get some breeze when I don't want so much air blowing in. The AC is incredible, very powerful. There are also two air vents in the back for the people sitting in the back seats.

Toyota Limited 4Runner 2003: the good and the bad.

2003 Toyota 4Runner Limited

This is one of the best cars I've had. Has lots of cargo space for luggage when traveling. The roof rack also makes ski trips easy. One problem is the leather seats. During the summer they will burn the heck out of your legs. Even though the vehicle is from 2003 it is still very up to date (ie. Heated seats, GPS navigation, and auto tint mirrors).

The best vehicle I have ever owned.

2003 Toyota 4Runner Limited

I have owned my 4runner for over 16 years and have not had a single problem. Handles great and very good off road. I love that it has drive, 3rd, 2nd, and low gears available for both 4 wheel high and low. Extremely comfortable interior. Especially the leather seats, which are all true leather, not faux or 'leather trimmed'.

Still running strong after 16 years!

2003 Toyota 4Runner Limited

The seatbelt does not fully retract and does not provide its original tension... But this is after 16 years. The foam dashboard is beginning to crack. But other than that, it runs like new! I do however keep up with maintenance, check tire pressure, and assure that I only use 91 gasoline.

Great vehicle requiring low maintenance

2003 Toyota 4Runner Limited

Haven't really had too many problems. Bought this used when it was 6 years old and have put new tires, new brakes, and changed the oil on it. Drives great and as long as you have the dealership change the timing belt every 90,000 miles all you need is routine maintenance

My 2003 4Runner was the first year when Toyota changed to the new body style

2003 Toyota 4Runner Limited

My 4Runner is very reliable. After 350k miles it is still going strong. No major problems with it since we have taken good care of it since we purchased it brand new. Toyota lives up to its reputation as having the most reliable and high performing cars out there
