Outstanding vehicle! Replaced timing
chain and fan belts at 130,000, clutch
at 200,000, original rear brakes still,
second set of front pads. Regular oil
and filter changes, second set of plugs
and second battery, original shocks and
the A/C has only needed charging once,
this year - that's it. Average 24 mpg
from day one. No rust except where
exhaust pipe meets rear fender. Couldn't
ask for a better vehicle. Second Toyota
pickup, will definetely buy another if
this one every quits.
Dependability, reliability. Sits
outside, basically unprotected, has
never failed to start. This truck is
driven hard - not beat but well used and
has always performed wonderfully.
Get tailpipe away from fender (may have
done so on newer versions)and improve
the timing chain tensioners, most likely
only an issue in the 22r engine. That's it.
