Toyota sucks........ Nuff said
You are either trolling or too stupid for words. Either way, gargle AIDS.

However I don't know if this would of been a good vehicle for my teenage years. The later model 4runners like the first and second generation are top heavy and do require careful driving. They are more narrow than some other SUV's and have been notorious for flipping. I think vehicles with high clearances require careful driving and some experience. They are less forgiving than a little subaru.
SR5 Toyota 4runners and SR5 toyota pickup trucks my favorite. They are snow slayers. There are a lot of these on the road from the 80's and 90's with a lot of miles on them that run fine and dandy. They are reliable and long lasting.
Again, 4runners are great on everything except for gas. In terms of safety and "flipping", I wouldn't worry too much. I had a 2000 4Runner when I lived in Lake Tahoe. One night as I was driving across an intersection, I got sideswiped on my passenger side by a drunk who was going around 35-40 MPH. The impact was so severe that it should have rolled any vehicle I would have been driving, but it only lifted up my 4runner for a moment and caused damage to the passenger side as well as smashed windows.
Air bags went off, and I was completely fine minus a few bruises and a mild concussion. The other guy had to be rushed to the hospital with serious injuries.
His truck was totaled. My 4runner was expertly repaired within a week and drove better than ever.
Moral of the story? If you can afford the gas, 4Runners are AWESOME vehicles.
