I first came across the Toyota Pickup line was in 2007 my Dad bought me a 1991 Toyota pickup with the extended cab 2wd it was baby blue on the outside and dark blue on the inside. It ran okay until the A/C and heater went out on it. Then it just started falling apart. The day I sold it was the happiest day of my life. Well in May of 2010 my Dad found a 1995 Toyota pickup and I was hesitant to get it because of the horrible experience I had with my last one. I did buy it though and I LOVE IT! It runs so much better than my 91. I had to replace the fuel pump but it was time for it. Its a great truck with great gas mileage. Uncomfortable on long trips but I mostly drive around town.

I use my truck for work everyday, I commute 33 miles to work and 33 back home and the occasional trip of about 250 miles so I would say annually I put 20,000 or so. Truck has procomp lift, and runs 33" tires. Truck runs great, with the occasional problem like lights, shocks, etc. Original engine ran until 280,000 and quit got new engine with 70,000 miles and runs like a champ, fun thing to drive on road and off road. Also good work truck has traveled to Mexico to haul car and misc. items weighing 400+ lbs. Lacks performance options for the V6 but is still good.

I normally don't say I like my autos, but with my 95 2.4L Xtracab DX, I'd have to say I love it. It has metallic dark blue paint, and all I've ever had to do with it is regular maintenance: tires, belts, oil, muffler, and wiper blades, and after 15 years, it still runs great and feels solid. I've had two minor accidents where they had to do some body work, but they matched up the rear quarter panels & paint, no problems. If I could drive it 15 more years, I'd be happy.

I love this little truck. It has never left me stranded. I pull a 12 foot trailer for a business and load up the bed and it still does great. In the 1 1/2 years I have had it I have only had to routine maintenance. Oil changes, change belts. I get in the lower 20's in Gas mileage on the freeway and about 15 when towing. It is a great highway cruiser. I can cruise at 95 and it's as smooth as can be. It's such a blessing to have a reliable vehicle.

Great Toyota truck. Smooth
drivetrain, good torque/power from V6
engine. Had to change the clutch at
around 50000 miles, it was wearing
down and stuttering. But now its as
smooth as ever. Great for hauling
around college kid's stuff and for
trees for the garden!
Note: Electrical wiring probs have
ocurred and the car jolts when
electricity is used (brake lights,
signals) Toyota cannot fix this, so
keep this in mind. Disconnecting the
battery for a few minutes then
reconnecting fixes problem for 100-200

This has been a great truck. Have
140000+ miles on it and only normal
maintainance done.I have been thinking
about semi-retiring it and get a car
to take some wear and tear off it, but
it still is going strong. Original
clutch, starter, alternator. Great
engine (22-RE), probably the best 4-
cyl. out there, but in the 4WD, a bit
underpowered. Not a problem though.
