I love this truck. I am the org owner used it for both daily commute and work around the home. The Toyota shop manuals I purchased with the vehicle are by far the best manuals ever written with clear diagnostic steps and drawings. The 4 cyl engine is a real work horse. To date (130K) it always starts, gets 18 mpg around town, doesn't leak oil, and is able to push the attached snow plow in deep wet snow. The light weight body makes 4 wheel driving easy, even with stock suspension and tires! This vehicle has out climbed my buddies souped up 4x4s, able to go up steep inclines, or through deep mud with ease. It's so tough, I think it will outlive me!

I bought this truck new. I had always wanted a 4x4 and I had a great excuse when I bought a new house with a treacherous driveway. I put about 40k on the truck in the first three years but have not put on 10k since. I have loaded this truck with a pallet of concrete blocks, yards and yards of gravel and many other things that were way over it's rated capacity. Never even made a groan. Very capable off-road. Interior comfort is as good as it could be in a small truck. Somewhere around 40k miles I think I hurt the engine off-roading and over- revving. It makes a weird rattling sound at high RPMs, but I've been driving it anyway and nothing has happened yet.

I have had this truck for almost a year now. This has been the least reliable vehicle I have ever owned. I bought it and since then have spent almost 2000 fixing things that have broken over time - alternator (4 times!), battery, distributor, starter (twice), and things that I have yet to fix - cruise control, alternator (again). Nothing on this vehicle ever actually gets fixed. I have yet to drive it for a month without something expensive breaking.

I purchased this truck to drive back and forth to college. I needed something good on gas but something that I could also drive in the winter time in our unpredictable weather. But after i was done with college i decided to keeo the truck i put a lot of miles on it in a pretty short period of time and it runs just as good as the day i first drove. No mechanical defects. Well built. Built to last and built right. Toyota tuff.

I have had this truck for ten years now. Its been the best money I have ever spent. I purchased at 88000 miles. Extremely reliable and low maintenance. Good fuel economy and very nice handling for a truck. In the last decade I've replaced the starter and a battery thats it!

I have owned a 1990 Nissan 4x4 and now this one and the Toyota has the most power. I liked the interior of the Toy more to. I have found it easer to find 3rd party addons for the Toyota to. And there are more Toyotas in the wrecking yard to get parts off of then others.
