Bought brand new 5/01. Is manual 5
speed. In late 90's, Toyota recalled
several years truck models due to bad
gaskets - replaced gaskets for free at
~130k. Had additional preventive
maintenance done at that time (saving

Spent ~$550. Had R rear axle bearing
replaced last year. Never garaged.

tires, belts, etc. Still waiting for
it to die to justify a new one.
