2000 Toyota 4Runner Problems

Automatic Transmission May Not Shift Correctly at High Mileages

At higher mileages, (125,000-150,000) the automatic transmission may not shift correctly. This can be caused by the throttle position sensor being out of adjustment or a shift solenoid needing to be replaced. Typically the transmission does not need to be completely overhauled.

Front Brake Rotor Wear Can Cause Pulsations

Front brake rotors can wear causing a pulsation felt in the brake pedal. Our technicians tell us this condition is best corrected by replacement of the front rotors and brake pads.

Toyota Recall For Lower Ball Joint Issue

Toyota issued a recall on the lower ball joint due to the possibility of premature wear from improper finishing in production. The ball joints will be replaced under the recall. This recall applies to 2001-2002 models only. Please contact you local Toyota dealer to see if your vehicle is included.

2000 Toyota 4Runner Reviews

I purchased this 2000 4 runner used in 2003. It only had 50,000 miles on it. I have been completely satisfied with its performance and appearance. The only thing that could be considered not so good is the expense for repairs or maintenance, since after market parts are not recommended. But I have had not major problems with it. And it still looks really good
