"Bought it new 2003. Have done nothing but put gas, oil, tires, wiper blades. I think I replaced a brake light bulb and maybe a side marker light bulb. Oh and exactly at 100,000 miles the check engine light came on saying I need to change my 02 Sensor. I think its just something Toyota programed in. No biggy I bought one for around $150 and put it in myself. I've had it 11 years still get compliments on it all the time, probably because of the lift kit, oversized tires, chrome grill guard, wind shield visor, hood scoop, side steps, etc... what? It takes care of me, I take care of it."

Pros: "Attractive, dependable, drives very well."

Cons: "Rusty center rear bumper and wheel rim blisters."

"Always garaged, and although it has a trailer hitch, it has never been heavily used. Only cosmetic problems are the standard Tacoma rusty center rear bumper and some blisters on the wheel rims. I would keep it until it dies, but I live in the country and need 4WD in winter."

"Bought this truck in 2000 from the dealership with only 6 miles on the odometer. Now it has 310,000 miles and it still runs great. Never had any major mechanical failures. Replaced the water pump twice. Unfortunately the paint is starting to fade from sunlight. When it rains, water finds its way into the passenger floorboard. I am not the best at changing the oil as prescribed, but the oil always looks clean - this truck does not burn oil. I am thinking of trading my old friend in on a new Tacoma but it breaks my heart to think about it. In 40 years of car ownership this has been the best vehicle I have ever owned."

Pros: "Inexpensive, excellent gas mileage"

"I have loved this truck since I drove it off the dealers lot back in 2003. Only regular maintenance required, with just minor things needing tweaked here and there. It's good on gas, but has enough power to get on down the road. I plan to keep this truck until it starts looking bad. Most women like to drive cars, this girl loves her truck!"

Best money I've ever spent, same gas mileage.

Pros: "Easy to handle, 20 mpg on a 4wd, 300,000+ miles!"

Cons: "Hard to get into xtra-cab, poor turning radius"

"When it was time to buy a new vehicle, and buying a truck was the practical choice for my needs, I did my research and talked to several Tacoma owners. ALL said they loved their trucks, and turned over 200,000 miles before needing major repairs. I am happy to say that 15 years and >300,000 miles later, this truck only now needs its first major repairs. Yet it looks great, still gets 20 mph hwy mileage, starts right up, accelerates fast and easy,and rides comfortably. It's the best money I've ever spent. I'm in the market for a new vehicle, and there's no question about it- Toyota again, and I'm looking at the Tacoma's alter ego... the 4Runner!"
