1999 Toyota 4Runner 4X4 Limited 3.4 Litre DOHC V6 from North America
The 4Runner is a great vehicle in any trim level, for those who like outdoor activities
The alarms and auto-locks went out at 200K miles, and cost a bundle to replace. Other than that, regular maintenance.
Seats are worn thru on the driver's side.
The engine is strong, but with the weight, it is not very powerful, but powerful enough. That said, it does have plenty of pull for the 5,000 pound tow rating. The available $x$ package for the Limited is extensive, and works great. Never had a problem.
I have taken this truck back and forth to work, and on vacations to the ocean and mountains. It has climbed thru the PA mountain's shale covered trails with no issues, and stands up to groups of screaming kids well.
The entry to the rear area is a bit cramped, as the rear wheel well intrudes a bit, and the main cabin is a tad tight as well.
Power is there when you need it, and it has a very capable and reliable tranny.
The hood is not well welded for stability, and has vibrated in the center on the bracing since new. Debated taking it back for a look-see, and decided against it. Not a real big deal.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
