"I bought my truck new in the fall of '99 and it has been a great reliable vehicle. No major problems thus far. Only items replaced is windshield wipers, tires and oil/air filters. Drives like a small truck, but that would be expected"
"I have owned American trucks my whole life and this was to be a vehicle to fill in between buying another full size American truck. Well almost 7 years later I just sold my little Tacoma to buy a another one.
Great truck, excellent on gas, hauled my motorcycles with no problem. Owned for 7 years with only buying brake pads, 2 sets of tires, and normal tune up items. VERY RELIABLE and fun to drive. I sold mine with over `134,000 miles and she ran as good as the day I bought it used with 44,000 miles.
Only bad I can say is it was a little small for a 220 pound 6 foot tall person, but I got used to it and like I said, drove the truck for 7 years!
BUY ONE YOU WILL LOVE IT!"
"I have owned the truck since new. At 83k I am pleased with only really having the maintenance, tires and brakes. Have thought about trading it for the new 4dr long bed w V6 since just married. Hard to part with a winner though. I have hauled in the bed at times upward to 750lbs which may be not much for a truck but it holds the road and accelerates well under that type of increased load. Gas mileage is good for a little 4 cylinder. Looking forward to 90k svc and serp and timing belt replacement. Insurance costs pretty good as well."
