4.4 out of 5 (10 reviews)

Love my mom car upgrade

I knew I got my car at a great price and the 7-day no questions asked return policy is great. I was able to get a couple minor fixes/tweaks done at no cost. Most were cosmetic like a new hood and an updated card for the navigation system. Love love love my 4-runner!


  • Interior Space: Two growing boy need the room!
  • Reliability: I’ve owned Toyotas in the past and wanted to get back in one
  • Value: New ones were our of my price range.


  • Fuel Economy: She’s a little heavy but I wanted a large SUV!
  • Cargo Space: Wanted a 3rd row but settled on the larger trunk instead

- Allison Hann, 2018 Toyota 4Runner

Great truck

Rides nice, good gas mileage. Great style. Love how the 3rd row folds flat. I have used the 3rd row several times when driving the kids and their friends. Everyone seems comfortable.


  • Styling: looks great
  • Braking: great brakes


  • Power: not as powerful as my old 8 cylinder but still enough to merge onto highway etc

- Lynn Katen, 2018 Toyota 4Runner

Great looking and reliable SUV

Primarily, I would recommend for the high reliability, and low maintenance. I also have a 25 yr. old Land Cruiser that shows very little rust for it's age. I expect no rust on my new Toyota after 5 or 10 yrs.


  • Fuel Economy: At slightly better than 20 mpg. That is great for a large SUV.
  • Styling: I like the looks of this SUV; the hood scoop looks neat.
  • Ride and Handling: The Toyota 4-runner has a better ride and handling than the Jeep GC.


  • Dashboard: Sometimes hard to see the read-outs due to low lighting and locations.
  • Technology and Entertainment: Takes some time to get used to the navigation system and other high tech controls. It does not always know what you want when it asks.
