Bought this truck 5 years ago with 31,000 miles. I now have over 200,000 miles as I commute 200 a day to work and home. No major work preformed except for tires, oil changes, brakes and clutch (at 180,000 mile). Truck is comfortable for my daily trips. I average 30 miles per gallon on the highway with a standard tranny. Dependable truck!!

Truck purchased new in 2-99; traded in a
buzzy bouncy crappy '98 regular cab
Toyota Tacoma. What an upgrade! I love
this truck. It has the 4 cylinder
engine; as such acceleration is not
comparable to gas guzzling V8's. BUT,
go west of Kerr County where a 75 MPH
speed limit is common. 85MPH in 5th
with 24 MPG is no problem with this high
revving 16 valve engine. Engine is
exceptionally smooth and quiet at speed.
Throw away the OEM Firestones and OEM
shocks. Buy 4 Bridgestone AT Revos tires
and Gabriel Max-Control shocks. Then,
enjoy this inexpensive and extraordinary
tough little truck. I do.

This truck has been reliable in the
sense that it has not broken down. But
I have had many problems with the
front end (loose torsion bar, sway bar
end links breaking loose 3 times). Now
my steering needs an alignment. I took
it to Foothill Nissan to have my
automatic transmission serviced and
they overfilled it, causing it to leak
all over the undercarriage. My driver
side window has always rattled. The
windows fog up easily (unlike other
trucks I have had). Heat always comes
out of the vent, even when you have it
on cold. The front fenders dent
easily. It is a really great looking
truck, but I think they need to work
on the quality.
