"16 years of average driving and never an engine or transmission problem. I change oil & filter every 5,000 miles. Only routine preventive maintenance done on this truck. I would not sell it for less than $10,000. I will drive it until either the engine or transmission falls apart. This is 10 out of 10, 5-Star rating as far as I'm concerned."
Pros: "Cannot see the clock from the drivers seat."
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"Bought it off the showroom floor and have driven it daily for 13 years. Best vehicle ever owned. I put on new tires, brakes, vacuum the interior, and wash it once every 50,000 miles. :-)
Not a fair-weather truck either. Use it to pull mini excavator, and small tractors. Have placed cubes of brick in the bed. (had to fix the bed after that one!)
Carried all of our grandchildren in the back seat and have the koolaid and milk stains to prove it!
Other than that, I've done nothing to it. No alignment, no shocks. Uses no oil, neither burned nor dripped. Tailpipe is perfectly clean!
Will report back in another 13 years!"
"101000 miles and total maintence cost is less than $1100.00. One tough truck. At this point I think 200,000 miles is a given. Truck still looks showroom condition. Original paint is perfect. Interior shows little wear. Original tires went 65,000 miles. My one and only complaint is the truck rides rough and I've never gotten used to it yet! Reminds me of my Grandfathers hay frame wagon. Additionally, the resale value at this point is unbelieveable; over 50% of original cost even with the high mileage.
I really have enjoyed this truck!"
"I love this truck but the problem is that kbb.com doesn't do this brand justice because the fact is that these trucks are so awesome, kbb may evaluate excellent condition for 10k but the reality is that it will sell for 14k at least. Even older toyota trucks that are valued at 4k will sell for double that, easily. There is the lack of supply and the demand is great because these trucks are great. My loan I took from my bank for this truck was much lower than I needed it to be simply because you under value this vehicle here. So thanks for causing me to have to come out of pocket for me to get my dream truck."
