Excellent camping and towing vehicle.

I became interested in purchasing a Four Runner to replace my Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo because of a friend's excellent experience with his Four Runner.
This vehicle has more interior space than my Jeep; is quite comfortable; easy to handle. Its ride is somewhat stiff, but I will get used to that. I am very pleased with the appearance and the interior. The A/C and radio are excellent; options for the FWD are clear and accessible.
The transmission is smooth and the steering responsive. It is a longer, larger vehicle, so will require a bit of adapting. The side view mirrors are large and generous.
The two rear rows of seats collapse readily to provide space for hauling and for my dog to have plenty of room. I haven't tried to utilize the seating capacity yet.
2003 was my #1 choice

When it came time for me to sell my Toyota truck with 350,000 miles (and daily driver) I did plenty of research for my next vehicle. I needed dependable, tow hitch, 4WD, V8, and 'used' as I could not afford a new vehicle. I narrowed the search to a 2003 Toyota 4-Runner as it was the first year with a V8. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE my 4-Runner. I drive it as a daily driver and take it to the hills in 4WD.
