2000 4 runner SR5 4x4

by
Mar 5, 2009 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Reliable. Brake pads lasted forever (101K) as do tires if gently driven (65K).
Cons: fuel milage is awful (18), ergonomics, minor electrical issues, boring, boring, boring
The Bottom Line: Get one if you're a smaller person and like going to the gas station often. Boring, but relaible.

Owned since new, now has 102,000 miles. Good relaible appliance with terrible ergonomics for the taller person. I'm 6'2" and have inadequate legroom, have to stretch to reach the radio controls and look through the top 2-3" of the windshield when ... read more

2000 4Runner SR5 4WD V6-Most Reliable Car Ever Bought

by
Aug 4, 2008 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Still runs like new and minimal maintenance or repairs when oil is changed regularly.
Cons: The negative to this vehicle is the location of the oil filter.
The Bottom Line: Totally recommend purchase of vehicle.

I bought my 2000 4Runner during the 2000 Clearance sale with only 100 miles on it from the dealer. Of all the cars that I have ever bought, this has been the most reliable and trouble free that I have ever encounter. All that I had to do to the car was ... read more

Simply put... the best.

by
Jun 29, 2006 - Updated Jun 30, 2006 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: It's solid. Reliable. Stylish. Rugged. Inspires envy of those who have lesser SUV's.
Cons: The gas tank really is too small. Underpowered for regular HWY driving (4-cylinder).
The Bottom Line: Get one. It's the best, most versatile vehicle I've ever owned.

I've had my 2000 4-runner for 2 years, have put 40,000 completely trouble free miles on it (I just rolled 100,000 miles), and can't imagine driving anything else. I have the base 4x4, 4-cylinder model, with manual transmission, and highly recommend it. ... read more

Great car for an outdoor enthusiast

by
Feb 20, 2002 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Interior space, reliability, driving comfort, safety, great for sports
Cons: Gas mileage, bumpy ride, tippy on corners, engine strains in the mountains
The Bottom Line: If you want a SPORTS UTILITY vehicle (for carrying equipment, mountain driving, off-roading) this car rocks. But be prepared to spend $$$ for gas, and feel tippy on corners.

I spend a lot of time researching my car purchases, and I have some very specific criteria that leads me to my decisions. In this case I wanted a car or SUV that: - Had EXCELLENT safety ratings (my prior car was a super-safe Volvo) - ... read more

Top choice SUV

by
Nov 1, 2001 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Good quality, adequate cargo space, good re-sale value
Cons: Not too roomy, gas guzzler
The Bottom Line: I'd recommend the 4-Runner because it's a quality car with good re-sale value. Low maintenance, so no headaches here.

My husband and I lease a 2000 V-6 4 runner and are pleased enough to consider buying it at the end of the lease. We are loyal Honda owners and considered the Passport as well as the X-terra. Nissan had a sporty looking SUV but for the price and low ... read more

4runner, best of best

Mar 30, 2001 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Proven, Dependable, High resale value.
Cons: Rides like a truck
The Bottom Line: No better vehicle made for the use designed for. Buy it, enjoy it, get good trade when ready to upgrade.

I first got involved with 4runner when it was, in essence, a pickup with a camper shell on it. What an evolution for an exceptional vehicle. Dont look for frills, whistles and bells, rather a solid dependable vehicle that will do virtually, within ... read more

Happy 4-Runner Anniversary!

Mar 18, 2001 - Updated Aug 1, 2001 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Safety, reliability.
Cons: Pricey, small gas tank, truck ride, tough to park in the city.
The Bottom Line: Safe, runs well, mostly comfortable, highly reliable.

The Toyota 4Runner has been around since the late 80's, and Toyota has had enough time to get it right. For the most part they do. It's comfortable, safe, and has lots of nifty design things built into it. We bought our SR5 in late February ... read more

Pros: Looks Nice, Rides well
Cons: Pricey, Low-gas mileage, Poor Corporate Customer Service
The Bottom Line: If you want a dependable, long lasting, outlive the loan vehicle, Why not try it?

2000 Toyota 4-Runner SR5, sleek, sexy, high riding SUV. I travel over 60 miles each way to and from work. I was looking for something with 4x4 that was going to last far beyond the average mileage. Toyota seems to be the vehicle of choice. I have ... read more

A luxury car with the power of a truck

by
Mar 2, 2001 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Smooth ride, quiet engine, decent mileage for a SUV.
Cons: expensive, roll factor,
The Bottom Line: If you want an SUV that has the luxury of a Mercedes but the price of a Toyota, this is your pick.

This car makes driving to the 9 hours to the beach enjoyable. With the comfortable plush interior and the extremely powered steering, it is all you have to do to keep form curling up and taking a nap. Along with comfort comes quality. I have owned a ... read more

4runner for me!

by
Feb 18, 2001 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Excellent ride, reliable
Cons: Expensive
The Bottom Line: If you want an SUV that works good in city and off road, this is the one. Looks slick, and rides great. A little expensive, got worth the price.

I currently own a 2000 sr5 4x4 4runner and my father owns a 1998 sr5 4x4 4runner. I have the 16 inch tires and find that the ride is much smoother around corners. The drive is smooth and the turning radius is very sharp. I previously owned a Camray ... read more

Pros: Looks great, has a lots of perks
Cons: Gas guzzler

My mother bought a 4Runner this year. Bad timing with the gas prices going through the roof and staying there all year, but she likes to be able to ride high and she has always wanted a 4Runner. I am a 4Runner fan myself and love the ability to take ... read more

Refined but Pricey

by
Dec 5, 2000 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Excellent refinement, ride and resale
Cons: Sub par gas mileage and price-value relationship

The 4Runner's strong suit is its refinement. Very quiet and smooth for a SUV. The 4Runner's weakness is its gas mileage, especially in V6 trim. This is compounded by its rather small gas tank. Excellent: ergonomics, stereo, ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Power & versatility
Cons: Frequent bulb replacement

We purchased this vehicle almost a year ago when we moved to a more mountainous region of the country. A tougher, stronger, more versatile vehicle to replace our light duty, manual transmission equipped truck. It has performed well in all ... read more

Cons: None

I purchased my 4Runner in May,2000, after owning several 4Runners in the past. I traded in a Subaru Forester, which was a nice enough vehicle, but it definitely wasn't a 4Runner. I went back to the Toyota because the comfort, ride, and quality ... read more

When our two youngest sons grew too tall to sit comfortably in the third seat of our 1996 Camry wagon, we went back to Bob Baker Toyota, in Lemon Grove, and leased a new Y2K 4Runner. During the past four years we have become a Bob Baker Toyota family, ... read more

Pros: Reliability, Quality, Ground Clearance
Cons: Ride,

Recently bought a used 97 sr5, V-6, five speed from a family member. The five speed, v-6 is extremely rare. I love it. There is a definite performance advantage gained with the standard tranny. It now has 77K on it and it feels like a brand new truck. ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Nice looking and Great driving
Cons: Need more gizmos in the Limited

Why a 4Runner? Why not? I can hardly see a reason. They have been consistently rated among the highest SUV's on the market in terms of dependability. The resale value for these SUVs are second to none as they retain their value better than ... read more
