1998 Toyota 4Runner Limited 3.4 litre from North America
Runner... won't stop running!
Starter - main issue. Stepped up for a premium brand starter and the bet paid off... As the starter malfunctioned in the deep of winter and had to be replaced, under the warranty of the starter manufacturer.
Rear wheel bearings & shocks -- replaced a month ago.
The Runner won't stop... running!
Bought 4 1/2 years ago because I needed a reliable unit with good towing capacity. I haul all my water for my recreational property, and each short haul (1 km) is a 5,000 lb adventure a couple times a week. The Runner gets it done 100%. Also gets to showcase its off road genes as the cottage is plunked in a hilly/small mountainous area... Right on the 49th parallel. Dirt roads, hard hills... snow, cold like you've never seen. Big League winter. And the vehicle lets nobody down... reliable. Period.
And I love that I still have people comment on the rugged good looks and overall great shape the Runner maintains.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
