    Hey guys. Need some advice guys. How many miles can you reasonably expect to get out of a 2006 4Runner?

    I have a 07 SR5 with 100K miles. I can sell it for at least $13K. I can buy a 06 Sport for $7K that actually looks better. The 06 has 208K miles, very well kept, clean car fax, and it has maintenance records. I can pocket ~$6K and essentially get the same usage out of the 06 as the 07 for the next 3 years if it has no major issues. Question is how much of a risk is buying a 208K 2006 4Runner? Any common major component failures Post 200K miles I should know about? Thanks guys.

    Thx. I understand rear diff, the AC evaporator, and the head gasket blowing are the typical problems these years have Post 200K miles. Anyone have any experience with these issues? Thx
