I purchased this as a single mom to feel safe in our midwest winters with my 4 year old at the time. It served me well up until last April of 2006. That is when he turned 16. He is now the principal driver and it is still going strong with only 129,000 miles on it! I feel comforted knowing he is driving ol' reliable and know he is safe. I had a hard time giving it up but it was time to pass on the tradition of quality. Toyota has not let me down, this was only my second one and I kept it for 12 years! Gas is the only issue now... not so great, but a super reliable second truck for towing and hauling!
Cargo room over the years it served me well, from gardening, to hauling antiques, to the dog! Put a protector down and did not damage the carpet still in great shape
Considering the year, it is a bit pokey getting on the highway, and legroom in backseat is a little short.
