2005 Toyota 4RunnerJason - Sunnyside, NY01/29/2015
Overall, the Toyota 4-Runner is a consistent performer and a well constructed vehicle. I found a single owner, seldom used, non-city model that had been driven in a southern state. Perfect.
Do your research, see it and buy it
2005 Toyota 4Runnermiamiandy24 - Miami Beach06/18/2012
I purchased a 2005 Toyota 4Runner, limited with only 25,000 miles this past May, 2012. I've been after another Toyota 4Runner for 5 years, particularly the 2005-2008 model years. I know that during the production run of this great SUV, an improved transmission and suspension were added to the 2005 model (original production started in 2003 and ended in 2009).
The turning radius is only 38 feet, living in Florida were the roads are flat gives my energetic V6 over 20 MPG on the highway and 17+ in the city. The driving view gives me no blind spots. The sound system is good, the AC is very cold and there is plenty of storage. The rear door has a closing mechanism so there is no need to slam to shut. Consumer Reports gives this model it's best feedback rating.
Toyota, in it's lack of wisdom decided to take a huge step back with it's new model, 42 foot turning circle, bouncing suspension and no rear closing mechanism. This comes from a friend that owns a 2010 4Runner and had previously owned the model I drive. It befuddles him how a car company would make a vehicle worse than the previous model. You don't have to look too far, just ask any Nissan Pathfinder owners from the 2005+ models and see that the owner satisfaction rating is really bad. I guess Toyota was looking to compete with Nissan for the one SUV that people can't wait to get out of. There are no extra points for finishing last.
so, remember, if you look for an SUV, find a 4Runner 2005-2009 and you'll be in driving heaven, anything else...well, it get's pretty hot down there.
