The perfect adventure & family road trip car!

2008 Toyota 4Runner SR5

We love this car. It is a great car, with little maintenance. We purchased the car right before deciding to start a family. It really is the perfect family car! It does not require any extra, special parts or oil. We also have two large dogs. The back window that rolls down is so great for when we go on long trips. They are happy with the fresh air & space. Aside from the family aspect, it is the perfect outdoor, adventure vehicle. Great for luggage, surfboards, snowboarding gear.

Six windows all automatic.

2008 Toyota 4Runner SR5

This things gets around easy handles great in the snow as well as on the beach both in four wheel drive and outside of four wheel drive. It has lots of space and I love the added moon roof and rear windshield windows that are fully automatic and movable. Only complaint I had was a transmission issue that was a tad pricier to repair due to it being a closed transmission.

My 4Runner takes me on adventures!

2008 Toyota 4Runner SR5

I love my 2008 Toyota 4Runner! The only issues I've had with my Toyota is the master cylinder, making air pumping noises. This doesn't affect the performance of the vehicle or the brakes. I recently replaced the following: spark plugs, air filter and brake pads. This SUV runs strong and is comfortable for long road trips.

Toyota 4runner is a reliable and stylish vehicle.

2008 Toyota 4Runner SR5

The 4 runner has been a very reliable vehicle that has suited all needs for our family. It has been reliable and gets good mileage and has retained value. I work from home so it is kept in the garage and has low miles given the year. Toyota is a dependable vehicle that you can count on for having for many years to come.

- Dana V

Amazing, long lasting SUV.

2008 Toyota 4Runner SR5

It is amazing. I have had it for over 10 years and haven't had one problem with it. The performance is great and it is reliable. It is white, silver trim with tan cloth interior. I wish I would have purchased leather. It has around 160k miles on it and the only problem I have had is the gas gauge needed to be replaced.

- Rebecca P

Sr5 gets me where I need to go.

2008 Toyota 4Runner SR5

Very reliable, comfortable drive. I have had my car for a year and a half and it has been the best car I have had. I have been able to get to commute everyday to and from my college. I feel safe when going on long road trips to the beach or mountains. It is a very safe car and very roomy if others are riding with me.

- Madison M

Versatile, safe, reliable.

2008 Toyota 4Runner SR5

I love to go camping and fishing and the off road capabilities are great. It has removable 3rd row seating which is nice because sometimes you need more room than seats. It drives smoothly. The rear window rolls all the way down. Perfect for my dog. Great in the snow. No large mechanical issues.

- Cole D

Perfect for family road trips

2008 Toyota 4Runner SR5

It lasted a long time and gets really good MPG. Rarely had any issues. The AC stopped working but it was an easy fix. We have put 200k miles on it in 11 years and see it going at least another 100k. We use it for family road trips and long drives. We also use it to haul a boat trailer
