1998 Toyota 4Runner from North America
Overall the 4runner is a good looker, but not performer in my book
The hood of the car shakes when you go past 75mph.
The suv is so noisy on the road.
The clock stopped working even though we had it fixed.
The seat rail covers pop off.
The back seats get stuck and cannot fold down.
We bought this vehicle because it looked great and thought it was built strong.
There has been lots of things that has gone wrong.
Bad for long drives because it is so noisy and shakes when you pass a certain speed on the highway.
Overall the 4runner is a good looker, but not performer in my book.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Perhaps your tires need to be road forced to see they are out of round.
The hood vibration can be eliminated by turning up the rubber hood stops at both corners of your radiator support.
Noise, can be any combination of things, but if you have a bug deflector on your hood, this will cause lots of wind noise. Also, if tire are cupped, tires will be noisy.

I have a 1998 4Runner with 212,000 km. Last week I took two 6 hour trips at 130 to 140 km/hr (80 to 90 mph) with no shaking or vibration and little extra noise. This truck has been flawless with no problems. I think you probably have lousy tires.
