Toyota 4Runner Problems and Common Complaints

Whether you already own a 4Runner or are looking to buy one, simply being aware of the most common problems this vehicle has can help you prepare or prevent. Check out this list for the most common problems 4Runner owners face.

Note: The list of problems below is organized by vehicle generation. Scroll down to find your model range.

2010-Present 4Runner – Common Problems

4Runner Problems

Airbag propellant degradation: Newer 4Runners come with Takata front passenger airbag inflators that fail to deploy during an accident. This happens because these airbags are missing a chemical drying agent that absorbs moisture, which leads to early propellant degradation due to excessive moisture and fluctuating high temperatures. To address this issue, Toyota issued a massive safety recall in summer 2017.

2003-2009 4Runner – Common Problems

04 4Runner Problems

Melting Dashboard: Even though Toyota extended dashboard warranty coverage for 2003-2005 4Runners only, this problem affects all the 4Runners in this generation. This happens when there’s excessive heat and humidity, and it can create a dangerous glare from the sun.

Premature Piston Ring Failure: This leads to excessive oil consumption, which – if not caught in time – will make your engine seize. Symptoms include finding your dipsticks dry or a little light on oil between oil changes. When faced with this issue, replacing the piston rings should fix it. You can get OEM piston rings from us at a discounted price (Part No. 13011-31210).

1995-2002 4Runner - Common Problems

98 4Runner Problems

Frame Rust: Many third-gen 4Runner owners have experienced issues with unusual levels of frame/undercarriage rust, which can lead to suspension system failure. This problem shouldn’t be attributed to the SUV’s age but rather the way its frame is constructed, which allows moisture to enter inside the frame and rust it out. A frame replacement is a good way to fix it.

Blown Fuses: When something, such as a bad aftermarket phone charger, draws too much electricity from your third-gen 4Runner, the 15A ACC and/or the 10A dome fuse can blow. This leads to the dome light and/or the radio not working. The good news is that this issue is easy to fix. All you have to do is to replace the blown fuse(s).
