1997 Toyota 4Runner SR5 from North America
A good looking vehicle that performs nicely
The power antennae became stripped and would not go up or down. We purchased a new antenna and changed it out ourselves. It now works fine.
The water pump recently developed a leak and is leaving a puddle of coolant everywhere we go. It is getting replaced at a dealership to a tune of $500.
I always considered the Toyota 4-runner my ideal car. I like the bodystyle and the vehicle clearance makes it ideal for off-road.
The lumbar support has very limited adjustment, which makes long trips uncomfortable.
The seat belts do not retract and are always getting caught in the door when shut.
The 4-runner can turn on a dime and is great for maneuvering out of tight spots.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
