If You Find One, Buy It

1992 Toyota Pickup SR5 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


I've driven this truck hard for five years, and found that it's not only a handsome and smooth-driving truck, but extremely reliable. Toyota nuts tell me that the '92 and '93 model years were the best trucks Toyota ever made (except for the old "Jungle Jim" Land Cruisers, which burn more fuel than a space shuttle). Parts are easy to find, and reasonable (especially if you buy them from Auto Zone or Pep Boys and install them yourself). Truck handles very well off-road, and cruises nicely at 80 MPH all day on the interstate. Note that owner's manual specifies that one not use gas of octane below 91 (they mean it; use 94 octane if you can).

Best Features

Great-looking body, sliding rear window and side vent windows, rear seat is perfect for stowing luggage and gear on road trips. Great on dirt roads and wet or snowy roads (but don't drive the 4- cylinder model on a beach, you'll get stuck).

Worst Features

Headlights are a major pain to replace (entire grille must be removed). Factory speakers are lame, as is stereo. Sliding rear window needs a better lock (a thief popped mine open with a screwdriver).
