"This has been a reliable well running vehicle. I've owned a few other autos and this has been the best ever. I keep it because it just keeps going. Just traveled cross country with out a hitch! Just do the maintenance on this vehicle and you will have a truck that will last easily over 300,000 miles. This con is the cup holder and the antennae for the radio. Other than that it seems to run as smoothly as the day I bought it. No transmission or engine issues other than old age ( alternator changed, and one fuel injector) in over 15 years. Thats it!"

Pros: "Reliable, durable, capable, great off road, hauls"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Incredibly reliable and durable truck. Have taken it on many touch four wheel drive trails and thousands of miles of general rough roads with great performance. Has never stranded me. The only issues have been expected for the mileage, such as a wheel bearing. Hauls a lot of gear and people. Spacious yet maneuverable. Easy to take the rear seats out for a little over 6 feet of room to sleep or haul boards, appliances, furniture, and other large items. The sliding rear window is nice for this too and is a great feature."

"Best vehicle I have ever owned!!! The picture submitted was taken in the fall of 2014. I know it sounds weird but I tell her every time I wash her how beautiful she is which is very often. She still looks brand-new and runs like a champ."

"I bought this vehicle when it was a year old and have lovingly taken care of it. Great for car camping, hauling bikes, carrying kids and is solid. I have used a Toyota dealer to have it serviced and never taken it anywhere else. All service records are available if desired. The age appropriate wear and tear such as fading roof and some fading on hood as it is burgundy in color. Minor scratches and dings from doors. Factory installed radio died about two years ago and I had CD/Radio/Blue Tooth installed by Best Buy. Back rear taillight is cracked; I have a new one but just haven't put it in...included with the car. Factory rack is installed. Has tow package and is ready to tow."
