"As a mechanic I've owned and worked on a huge variety of trucks and cars. In the past 20 years I've never owned or been associated with a more reliable and versaitile vehicle. I honestly believe that this truck is under-rated and the few changes Toyota made to it over the years before they introduced the V-8 Tundra only made it better."

Good truck for the value.

"My 1997 T100 is equipped with the 3.4 v6 engine and has always been a very reliable truck after 20k on the vehicle in less than a year. Mid sized truck with adequate power for it's class. Comfortable rear passengers with the extended cab version as well. 6.5' bed holds as much camping or what gear than any 4runner or tacoma. It is ready for a timing belt and this should always be checked before purchase."

Pros: "durable. mid-size, and RELIABLE !!!"

Cons: "gas mileage - cost of parts from toyota"

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

"very little plastic and built with a lot of metal instead. bought with 65,000 on it in almost perfect condition and only had 1 problem with fuel pump - rest is regular maintenance i will never sell this truck, nothing is built as durable as Toyota built T100's, and Tacoma's from this era. you can almost climb into the engine bay it is so roomy, doesnt get good gas mileage or drive smoothly like new trucks but will outlast anything new (even japanese)."
