"My wife fell in love with our 97 T100SR5 2WD at first sight. Having owned 4 Toyotas previously, I had total confidence in our purchase. That was in 1999 and it has been a perfect fit for us ever since. Its 3.4 V-6 has decent power on flat ground, but loaded with camping gear for a weekend in the mountains will leave you wanting more. I installed a K&N cold air intake system and 3 chamber flowmaster muffler. The flowmaster didn't deliver much more than a very pleasing exauhst note, but the K&N system helped noticeably. Fuel economy has always run about 12 to 14 city and 20ish on the highway. It's been as high as 22 but you won't make any friends on the road that way. The intake & exauhst mods had no effect on the MPG good or bad, but the drivability improved noticeably especially off idle. Reliability has been great. My only complaints are: 1) I wish the valve timing was through a chain instead of a disposable belt. 2) It's a little thirsty for a 2WD V6. Overall, it's a great truck! From its full insturment panel & roomy interior to it's uncomonly comfortable suspension and understated good looks, it's a winner."

"Bought my truck used a couple years ago with approx 250000 miles on it. Sat unused in a parking lot for approx 1 year, put a new battery in it and it fired right up. Still has plenty of power and climbs hills like nothing. Dashboard is a little plain and outdated but it's simple to maintain."
"I bought this truck used 7 years ago with 99k. I've driven the four corners of the US in it and constantly abuse the poor girl. It goes and goes with only oil changes and regular maint. Just did a trip to Oregon from Seattle and got 24mpg going 70-80mph. Buy this truck of your looking for one they are excellent!!!!"
