1997 Toyota Tacoma V6 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB
This is the first truck I have ever owned. I drive it hard and it has made 4 cross country trips pulling a fully loaded u-haul. I am about to roll 200K and besides tires, oil and timing belts I have only had the brakes and the clutch master cylinder go out. I bought it because of the reliability Toyota is praised for and I will definitely go back for another one. Problem is I don't see me trading mine in for another couple of years.
Great off-road ability, pulls boat and other trailers with amazing ability.
I could only complain about the seat belt retractors, either they don't retract the belt or they lock up so you can't pull the belt out for use (minor detail), but that problem was fixed when my dog ate the seatbelts.
