1998 Toyota 4Runner 3.4 litre from North America
Reliable, comfortable, great off road hunting vehicle, with a comfortable ride in town
Front O2 sensor (original) needed replacing, but replaced both.
Absolutely outstanding! I needed something that would be comfortable to drive around town, but also had some real capability when driving offroad for hunting trips a few times per year... I looked for over a year to find a low mileage 4runner in excellent condition and contacted the owner 14 minutes after he posted on Craigslist (I missed a few good ones because I wasn't fast enough). I had my local mechanic do a pre-purchase inspection, including a compression test, and bought it. The only issue was a leaking steering rack - $1,580 installed at a Toyota dealer - bought a new aftermarket for $340 USD from carsteering.com (great product and service).
I can honestly say this is a fantastic vehicle and I will never, ever sell mine...
The Limited model is very comfortable, has all power options, gives a comfortable road ride, and has proven itself offroad in the mountains and trails of British Columbia, Canada. I am 6-4, and fit well.
Do your research and you will want to buy one. I had an XJ Cherokee years ago and there is no comparison... the 4runner is much better and reliable. I would go anywhere with my 4runner and feel confident.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
