Yeah - I think it looks like a flood vehicle. There shouldn't be any rust on interior hardware. Mine has none at all. Even my 1990's 4runner interior hardware never had any visible rust after 30 years. This is unusual.

After checking it I was thinking to purchase this vehicle... Is the 4Runner really 40.000.00 worth it?

Cons

1 - Bad gas mileage

WRONG!!!!!!!!!

Well, stock it gets bad mileage...

I drive to Tucson about once or twice a month from Buckeye Arizona... and when i drive my 4Runner I arrive in Tucson w around 1/4 of a tank left and need to fill up so I have gas to make it back home. I like to take my wifes car because she gets much better gas mileage than my car, its a new Toyota Corolla and it has a smaller tank but gets great mileage.

I just added a new exhaust system on my 4Runner and I honestly cant believe the improvement in mileage,... i can make it round trip to Tucson on a single tank of gas and have 50 miles to spare. I cant do that with my wifes Corolla.

Quite literally...INSANE. Probably due to the damn car not changing for over a decade and other models like the FJ/GX able to share certain parts.

what exhaust system might this be? I cant imagine an exhaust system improving anything other than noise. Now if your y-pipe and cats were deleted in the process that might make more sense.

Iíve owned quite a few 1980ís 4runners and actually was driving an 87 4runner when I bought my 2021 TRD Offroad,I have owned mostly Toyotaís my adult life so I was biased but I looked around and researched and always came back to the 4Runner,I wanted utter reliability and quality more than fuel mileage or all the gadgets ,I realized the 4.0/auto combo was ancient but extremely reliable so that trumped anything else ,Iím happy with my decision

Phx to Tuscon and back with gas to spare. With stock exhaust I had to fill up in Tuscon because I was at a quarter of a tank left.

Not really...JEEP on the other hand there is an INSANE amount.

I wanted the loudest exhaust, so I got the flowmaster... I didnt think the gas mileage would improve as much as it did. But like i said, twice a month I drive to Tuscon and I KNOW what kind of mileage I was getting stock. After I put on the exhaust I can make it there and back on the same tank of gas.

Take a look at the difference between the stock and the flowmaster muffler.

If you want a quieter exhaust look elsewhere and I cant guarantee the same mileage result from another brand.

Been about 3 months and love the 4Runner! Have added roof basket, traction mats, shovel, Hella off-road lights, bull bar and side rails to our 2019 SR5.

We solved the mileage problem by buying the wife a RAV4 for shorter, on-road trips.

Who cares about fuel mileage? Adjusted for inflation, gas is cheap.

19 MPG now ... not sure what it was before exactly.

But I said...

STOCK: Phx to Tuscon before I had a quarter of a tank once i reached Tuscon and had to fill up in order to make it back w a quarter of a tank left.

Now I can go there and back and still have about 50 miles before empty.

Bought it due its excellent reliability, durability and longevity. No surprises there right? What would improve it IMO: solid front axle, better approach, departure and break over angles. Also making it more utility oriented, less fluff for Millenials, removable doors and top. Not enough anchoring points inside. Great vehicle for what it is but NOT a Jeep Rubicon contender, but then again neither is the new Bronco! Toyota needs to LISTEN to its 4X4 customers. I am quite sure the 6th Gen will be of less quality, durability and possible capability too than our current 5th gens. This may be the last Toyota 4X4 I own. Upside is it will probably make our 5th gens very desireable as a used 4x4, improving resale even more.
