Bought it used 8 years ago, and I've driven it like I stole it ever since. Currently has 196,000 on the clock and I can list the repairs on one hand: new ignition lock cylinder at 120k, new ignition coil and wires at 190k. Less than $600 in repairs. I get about 21 mpg on my daily commute, running it like a scalded dog. The rep on these is golden. I've had several offers to buy mine from complete strangers. This one has made me a loyal Toyota customer for life, if not longer.
Legendary reliability, perfectly sized truck, strong V6, storage bins under rear seat, designed to be easy to maintain.
Nothing major; very few things about this truck irk me. More than one 12vdc outlet would be nice. Hood flexes at highway speeds, alarming passengers.
The T-100 is an overall great truck. I have no complaints. Never had anything go wrong at all. Oil changes and tire rotations are all you really need to do. Very smooth ride, quiet engine, stylish look. The acceleration off the go could be a little better, which is the case with the 4Runner as well. My only gripe is that the interior is bland, which is the case with most Toyotas. Due to the fact that gas is now $5 per gallon, I'm selling the T-100 to purchase a Camry. I have to say that I am so damn upset about this. The T-100 gets good gas mileage for a truck, but not as good as a commuter car. Gotta do it.
Everything. Best used truck you can buy. Better than the Tacoma and the Tundra. I've driven all three and this one takes the cake.
Sharper interior for all Toyotas. Such great vehicles need a great interior to match.
My company purchased this truck for me
in February of 1998. I have
maintained the truck like clock work.
It has never let me down. I tow
trailers with equipment and materials
without a problem. My truck now has
150,000 miles and is still running as
strong as ever. I would deffinately
recommend the T-100 to anyone who is
considering purchasing a mid-size
truck. I installed a Fabtec 3" lift
kit, 31" tires and stiffer torsion
bars. I ordered new rims with a
larger backset to correct the sunken
in wheel look. The gas milage
suffered slightly however the truck
looks as mean as ever.
