The Highlights of a Toyota 4Runner

The 4Runner is like a pickup truck though smaller than a pickup truck. It handles well in winter. Being high off the road makes it better when snow gets deep. Four by four, with manual switch is the way to go. No automatic switching to four wheel drive. Switch manually to 4 wheel drive low, or switch to 4 wheel drive high. There is room for five passengers. There is room for luggage in the back and some also come with a luggage rack on top which is good for extra storage. The sound system is awesome. The bass is good, really good! You can play CDs and yes also the old fashioned cassette tapes in my older model! I can't say enough about how good the sound is. The 4Runner is a very strong vehicle. Anyone looking for a truck that is not huge and still is well off the road as far as clearance, the 4Runner is the way to go. The 4Runner is great bang for your buck. It is good bought new or buy one used, the 4Runner will not fail you. The 4Runner has towing capability. Take it on camping trips road trips or just quick trips running errands. The only concern that I can think of is that the road noise is to loud for my preference. I would like a quieter cabin. Other than that I love my 4Runner!

This particular year is equipped with a timing chain instead of a timing belt.

Toyota 4 runners in general are great vehicles. Though my 4runner is base model it still have great feature. sunroof if probably my favorite. Along with roof racks for traveling. Also aside from the inside height it can basically be used as a pickup truck the rear seats fold down completely allowing ample space if you need to hit the hardware store and if somethings seem a little to long to fit, the rear window goes down for those oversized 2 by 4s etc. Another great feature is it comes equipped with a tow package so you will not have to purchase an add on. Also great for grocery shopping the floor in the rear lifts up to become a secondary shelf with ample space to store many groceries and even comes equipped with a sun shield for those refrigerated groceries as we. One more thing is the air conditioning, coldest ac I have ever had in any vehicle and there are ac vents in the rear as well.

Perfect reliable adventure car.

This car is an excellent car for adventure. I never have to worry about fitting all of my gear (I ski, climb, mountain bike, etc.). I can sleep in the back of my car comfortably with another person. It can handle any road conditions and it has taken me to places I could have never accessed with many other cars. The car is solid and sturdy but also very fun to drive. The interior is spacious and people always comment on its leg room. The back window rolls all the way down and that is probably one of the most enjoyable extra features the car has. My car has 150,000 miles and has not had any issues besides regular maintenance. It feels like it still has a lot of life left in it.
