I've had my T-100 for 11 years and have driven it for 171,000 miles. Many of those miles have been on long distance trips. The truck has performed excellantly and has been very reliable. I use my truck to haul mulch, lumber, firewood, shop equipment, etc., many times loading it to at least cpacity and have not had any difficulty with performance in any way.
This is the best truck I've owned. I
owned two GMC's before this and they
fell apart by 80k miles. I bought this
truck used in '95 w/14k miles on it -
just turned 200k miles on this truck and
the only thing that I've had to replace
is the A/C compressor - it gave out
after 8 years.
I did take it in at 80k miles for the
head gasket recall and a new timing belt
and water pump - just put a second
timing belt and water pump at 200k
I drive it hard 80+ mph and it still
idles like new. Radio gave out after 8
yrs - all other electronics, pwr
windows, pwr locks, pwr mirrors, still
It is the perfect size for me - interior
is very roomy - same size as the Tundra
- midsize body just right for city
Dents easily - tougher body sheet metal
I wish they still made this truck - I'm
looking for a '98 T-100 to replace this
one. Not sold on the Tundra yet.
