Default 1997 Toyota 4Runner $3800. East Lansing PRICE DROP

1997 Toyota 4 Runner Black Exterior, Tan Cloth interior. SR5 model 4 wheel Drive. Gold Emblem Package.
3.4 Litre V6. Automatic Transmission.
Clean Car Fax, No accidents, Clear Michigan Title.
PS, PW, PL, Power Moon Roof. A/C Rear heat, Rear Defrost, Power Rear Window.
Second Owner, (first owner was a corporate lease)
Owned since January 2002. 71,538 miles when purchased. Paid $15,900 from Toyota Direct in Columbus Ohio.
Now at 157,382 miles.
16 inch alloy wheels with 265 70 R16 Goodyear Wrangler RTS tires. The two front tires are new 0 miles.
Factory Hitch with tow package. Never towed with.
Factory Running boards.

Work done.
Rear Coil spring recall done May 2002, at 79,831 miles
New ignition cylinder 05-20-06
Diehard battery 12-6-07
Starter Contacts replaced 12-11-07
Front Brake Calipers, pads and Rotors done on 12-27-08 at 149,500 Miles
All Belts, Water Pump, Thermostat, transmission fluid and filter change, and Timing Belt
done on 03-28-09 at 150K miles
Diffs and Transfercase fluid changed at 150K as well.
Lifetime Walker muffler done on 10-25-09
New front Sway bars and swaybar bushings, and poly steering bushings done.
Tie Rod Boots, and power steering fitting replaced 03-19-11
Rear Heater Lines just replaced.
New rear Shocks a few months back, along with a new fuel filter.
Front shocks were replaced in 04 with Rancho RS 5000s.
O2 sensors have been replaced but cant find the paperwork. Should be good for another few years.

Have receipts for work/parts over the years
Oil Changed every 3K, Castrol. and Fram Filters.
Overall a very clean and reliable Toyota. This is the 3rd 4Runner we have owned. Reason for selling is it does not get driven often anymore. (5000 miles in past 3 years) 5th car in the driveway, and have a newer 4runner now.
Paint is still shiny, Just clay bared and waxed a few weeks back. Few bubble rust spots on rear hatch. Typical for Toyotas in this area, and typical for 13 Mid West winters. Interior is still nice. Few door dings.
4 wheel drive works great, shifts smooth. CVs are in good shape. Excellent vehicle in the snow. Rear window works, heat and A/C.
All Stock, has not been abused or off road. Adult female driven. A lot of maintenance items have been done. (timing belt, H2o pump, front brakes, muffler, o2 sensors)
What will need attention: Will need rear tires eventually, (E brake is froze) so that should be lubricated as well. Valve cover gaskets are starting to weep. Should be replaced along with spark plugs. Transmission pan is leaking a drop or two since it was dropped to replace the filter. Simple fix. Some of the interior wood trim has started to peel.
The Clock is intermittent, and sometimes the alarm chirps to lock/unlock with the keyless entry. Sometimes it doesn't. Alarm still works properly however. No floor mats. Didn't have them when I bought it in '02.

Blue Book is 4800 for "good" condition, This one is better than good, but not excellent in my opinion,
NADA is 6600.

$4,000 Firm. East Lansing. No trades, R/C Cars, paintball stuff.

Thanks, agree on the car seats, hence vehilce #4 is an 8 passenger Sienna.

All BS aside you regularly see these in the 200-250K+ mile range without issues.
Timing belt is good for another 85,000 miles.

Just needs a new owner.

A few people had enough energy to send an email, and never reply. Cant even call them tire kickers....

Truck runs great. still looks nice and would be a nice winter ride. Id keep it another 9 years if I didnt have a 2000 4Runner on 33s sitting right next to it...

I'm surprised this isn't gone yet. Probably get it cleaned up and get some better pictures of it and it will sell. I would be all over it in the fall (buying a house this month, can't take money out of savings)

Im not pushing as hard as I should to sell it, Like posting it 500 times on every craigslist city in 3 states. its a good running truck, Its 15 years old and not perfect. but would be a nice first car, or beater I suppose.

Any lower on the price and Im better off taking it in the garage and parting it out. Its been paid off for 10 years......

I will post up some here, Can you PM me a good email and I will email you additionals of what ever you would like. I have included two of the body rust. Rear hatch on passenger side and rear passenger wheel well. The door threasholds are all clean.

If I get time this weekend I will free up the Ebrake and get photos of the rear brakes. If they need to be replaced I may do that as well.

Thanks
