1999 Toyota 4Runner Limited 6 cylinder from North America
I do very little to it or for it, and it repays me like a good Labrador Retriever
Nothing mechanical. Had a belt replaced at 75,000 miles, but other than this, it has only been serviced for oil changes every 3,500-5,500 miles.
The leather on the seats is beginning to crack some, but I've not been diligent in conditioning them.
This car is a workhorse. It goes and goes and goes. I do very little to it or for it, and it repays me like a good Labrador Retriever. It isn't the most comfortable ride and distances of more than 3 hours can necessitate a couple of stretch breaks, but hey, it's really a truck with an enclosed cab. This one isn't a 4X4 and is a 6 cyl., so the acceleration isn't stellar, but I don't really need a race truck. It goes fine and has no shimmying/shaking at higher speeds the way my old Honda Accord did. Now that it's 2007 and this is a 1999, I'm considering upgrading, but I feel disloyal thinking about giving this one up. Maybe I'll keep it for the weekend runs to the home/garden store. Or maybe I'll get a newer 4-Runner.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
