cup holders sort cause problems using heat/cold levers, seat belts slackening get caught in door, sunvisors are poor quality,size, throttle linkage is tight causing jack rabbit starts, BUT overall I am thrilled with this trucks performance,style, quality of ride. YEP I like it a lot.

Best I've ever owned

Review

Has been the best vehicle I've ever owned. Doesn't drive like a truck, more like a luxury car. Has gotten a steady 19.5 to 21.5 mpg on the open road since the first day I got it and thats with a full top camper. Even when loaded, handling is solid and responsive. Driven every day to work and back. Still looks like a new truck.

Review

I bought it new in Oct. 96. While it has been a generally good vehichle, I have had problems with the engine. The head gasket needes to be replaced at 17,000 miles and again at 49,000. The gas milage was good at first but has steadily gotten worse and worse over the years. I now get less than 13 mpg in city driving- worse than most V-8's! The compression is low in one cylendar. Mechanic says it will cost $600+ to replace the head gasket again and potentially much more if it needs a rebuild. The engine does have 112,000 miles but what about all the 200,000, 300,000 mile stories you hear about Toyotas? Not going to happen here.

I love my truck

Review

I purchased my T-100 with 40K and now have 120K. I have had no work done other than timing belt and water pump. My wife keeps asking when I am going to get a new vehicle, but how can I get rid of a truck that still runs like brand new after 120K? Looks like maybe another 120K and I might concider putting it out to pasture. Nah.

Review

110,000 miles & finally replaced a lightbulb. Very happy with the 4cyl, plenty of power to tow a small boat. Cloth upholstery has held up great. This has been the most dependable vehicle I've ever owned.

1996 Toyota T100 DX 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


Review

I bought this truck with 90,000 miles and now have 171,000. I use it both on the farm and commuting to work. It behaves equally well on the highway as it does climbing a hill. It has been extremely dependable (no surprise) but has also taken a good beating and comes out looking great. The bumber guards behind the plastic moulding below the bumper are a life saver. This is one great truck.

Review

I bought this truck at an auction. It had 90,000 miles at the time and has over 140,000 now with absolutely no problems. I think about getting a new one but this one runs great. I intend to put 200,000 plus miles on it...

Review

Our T-100 was purchased new and is now 7 years old and still runs great. Although it never caught on this truck does the job and does it well. Even though the paint has faded the truck still runs great!

Review

Bought used with 72000, currently at 114000 and on same set of tires!! Front end has been aligned ONCE in that time and tires are good for another 20000 by looks of them! Friends/nieghbors with Fords/Chevys seem to have many front end, brakes, and trans problems. Just the usual upkeep for me. I would recommend this used vehicle as an alternative to new fullsize models in a second!!

T100 4wd review

Review

I bought this truck new and have put 129,000 problem free miles on it. Living in Colorado I used this truck extensively off-road and it has really good ground clearance. It has all original parts with the exception of the brakes(replaced factory at 85,000 miles) and of course tires. I highly recommend this truck and indeed two of my friends bought identical models and have had the same success.
