    2003 Toyota 4Runner

    Very Best Vehicle I have ever owned!

    Pros: Take off when needing to go immediately.

    Cons: None

    This is my 6th or 7th Toyota but my first 4-Runner. IF I HAD THE MONEY, I'D BUY ANOTHER ONE 'NEW', however, my next will need to be financed and I don't want large payments so will have to downsize in my car type and probably make.

    2003 Toyota 4Runner

    Great SUV!

    Pros: Universal usefulness

    Cons: an occasional bump

    This is a great sport utility vehicle that performs just the way you'd like for sport, highway, or utility hauling. Due to it's perfect sport attributes it does not ride as smooth as your Mama's stationwagon/caravan, but given how well it does everthing else, what is a few bumps now and then?

    2003 Toyota 4Runner - SR5 Sport V6 (A4) 4x4

    Pros: SMOOTH RIDE

    Cons: A BIT OF RATTLE IN THE OVERHEAD GLASSES CASE

    Advice: I WOULD SPEND MY MONEY ON A 4RUNNER AGAIN. .

    I BOUGHT MY 4RUNNER IN NV AND DROVE IT HOME TO MO. I LOVE THE POWER/RIDE AND GAS MILAGE FOR A TRUCK. CROSSWINDS ARE A SMALL PROBLEM (JUST KEEP YOU EYES ON THE ROAD AND HANDS ON THE WHEEL.)I LOVE THIS SUV, THE ONLY THING IS THAT I DON'T NEED A TAPE DECK!!! MIGHT AS WELL BE AN 8TRACK PLAYER!

    2003 Toyota 4Runner - SR5 Sport V6 (A4) 4x4

    Pros: The vehicle skid control

    Cons: The way it looks from the rear.

    Advice: Don't bother with the V-8. It has more torque, but less HP

    I love my V6! When I punch the gass I take-off, yet I can take it up in the woods too! This is a true truck-based SUV. Nothing beats this truck in the snow... Down Hill Assist, Hill Climb Control and vehicle stability control. Besides, the sport model looks tough.

    Good V6 power & 18.1-MPG combined city, hwy, & offroad. AWD capability anytime. Traction & anti-skid control standard, as well as standard CD & cassette. Large fuel tank & great ground clearance. Excellent handling unless windy. Sunroof equipped models won't accomodate tall drivers. No ashtray or gauges. Interior easily mars. Vehicle easily blown around in a crosswind. No underhood light.
