I am looking at a 1989 4runner SR5 v6 with 5 speed manual transmission. It has 168,xxx miles on it, although a new radiator, clutch, and hubs have been installed. Additionally allscheduled maintenace has been done. What kind of reliability can i expect?

thanks,

chris

Hey Chris I just bought the same truck only with 188000 miles. I have a 97 Corolla CE and have never had a single problem with it. Only things I had done to it were regular maintence. Toyotas are great! I'll never buy anything except toyota ever again!

Mileage is completely irrelevant....IMO.

There are armies in this world who have overthrown several successive governments with the same fleets of 4runners!!!

Mine (which has NOT seen active duty) has 197,000 miles on it. I haven't noticed any reduction in power or performance since I bought it 5 years and 65,000 miles ago.

I've got an '84 4Runner with 251,634 miles and counting. Original transmission and transfer, different motor, and other than leaking a quart of Oil a day and the rear power window switch not working, it runs pretty well for a quarter of a million miles on it. The only bad things about toyotas are that they are slow and they're japanese.
