Very roomy and convenient.

I really never had any problems with my vehicle my husband maintains it pretty well he is a mechanic it is very reliable, it is very good on gas mileage, it is roomy and comfortable. My husband likes to ride bike so he puts the bikes in the back with no problem, we also have 5 fur babies that we take to the park a couple times out of the week and we have no problem with the room.

The 2004 4Runner is a great choice of SUV for busy moms. It doesn't get great mileage in City but it does ok on the open road. Just watch out when driving in the city for the blind spot created in front of the side view mirrors

My 4Runner is big like a truck but rides smooth like a car. I easily haul boxes of thrift store purchases and donations. It's easy to get into and out of my 4Runner which has run over 240,000 miles and is still running strong. The only thing I don't like about it is that the side mirrors are too large and dangerously block my view sometimes.

This car has over 250k miles and has never once broken down.

This car has over 250k miles and is still the most reliable vehicle i've ever had. It can get through several feet of snow and not struggle and handles amazingly. Like most SUV's, the turning radius is not amazing however, compared to my Chevrolet I had before (which had major problems all the time and died at 170k miles) its night and day.
