#7 of 2053 Northern Most Sport 4x4 V6 On the Planet
Jan 17, 2003 (1:14 am)
North Pole Alaska Purchased the one and only Sport 4x4 Multi Mode /V6 Stratosphere Mica Blue with Power Moon roof Black Running Boards Double Decker Cargo System Rear Spoiler Daytime Running Lamps
Preferred Accessory Package
My TMV $32200 with Auto Service Company
Dealer in Anchorage wanted $226 Less, but had additional paper work/admin $$ that would have eaten up any savings, plus who would travel 400 miles one way to save a few peanuts???
Also, Winterization Package here in North Pole was $355 for Battery Warmer, Block Heater, Oil Pan Heater, and all synthetic lubricants for differential, tranny, brake fluid, and radiator protection to -60 F, versus Anchorage price of $595 for a Block Heater and fluid change out.
The day before I took delivery of the Sport, the one and only Limited sold for full price $37,600.
I'm pleased with the deal I got, and really feel comfortable with the dealership in every aspect, especially for warranty and service needs. They're holding for me a Toyota Extended Warranty 7yr/100,000 miles with $0 deductible for $1400- the Nye Dealership wanted $2295 for the same product.
#8 of 2053 2003 4Runner Is Lacking!
Jan 20, 2003 (5:30 pm)
I have to admit. I was impressed with the increase in size in the 2003 4Runner. It is slightly shorter than the Explorer and longer than the 2003 Honda Pilot. But the Explorer and Pilot have one feature still missing in the bigger 4Runner. It is a 3rd row seat. It is especially for those like my girlfriend and me who just changed from a minivan to an SUV with the same seating room and better traction.
With that problem, the 4Runners are overpriced. And it is bad when their standard V6 has more horsepower than the optional V8. Our current SUV I highly recommend over the 4Runner and the other 2 I covered we got is a 2003 Chevrolet EXT Trailblazer LT with its standard V6. It has plenty of horsepower. It is more than the 4Runner's V6 or V8. But the EXT Trailblazer's optional V8 has more horsepower than its standard V6. I hope Toyota straighten those problems out with their 2004's. I called both to their attention. The rest is on them.
For those not needing as much passenger room, I highly recommend the 2003 4Runner. It has more cargo room than the 2002. But I suggest getting it with the standard 4.0L V6. I hope this helps.
