What can I say. I have abused this
vehicle since I bought it new. I put
22k miles on in the 1st 3 months. I
have hauled heavy oilfield equipment,
towed trailers. Run through mud,
chains on all 4. Twice as many hours
including idling on worksite as miles.
It does not burn a drop of oil. I have
replaced the clutch, new brakes,
muffler, timing belt, etc. Wonderful
vehicle. I averaged between 20 and 26
MPG over its great life. Slightly
smaller than full size, but tire tracks
match well in deep mud with other pick-
ups. Can not say the same for the
Tacoma. I liked so much, I bought a
new Crew Cab Tundra 2004.
Reliability, mileage, rides like a car.
I agree on other comments, Seat Belts
lock-up, Air Conditioning never "Too
Cold", cup holders in the way of vent
controls. See 2004 Tundra Crew Cab.
