I bought this truck new. I drive it every day & have ridden it hard with frequent off-roading and towing. It has had almost no problems. I now have 130k miles on it (in 2010) & it runs like new. Other than regular maintenance, I've only had to replace the fuel pump & water pump. There is a door hinge pin that is a design flaw that must be replaced approx. every 100k mi. for $40. I've owned 3 Toyota trucks previously and got this because of the 0% 60mo. financing. None of my Toyotas ran this well for so long, with such comfort. The MPG was about the same. I average 16-18.
Looks great. Runs flawlessly. Strong engine. Good comfort/convenience.
Wish it would have had a ZR2 option (it cost me around $1000 to install mild lifts to get the ZR2 appearance--before lifting, people thought it was a 2WD). Stock is too low. Bigger gas tank. I can only go about 270 miles on a tank.
