  • Pros

Tough little truck

by on
Vehicle: 1999 Toyota Tacoma SR5 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

I have replaced the exhaust manifold, rear leaf springs, and the universal joint at the differential twice. It does not burn or leak oil. The steering gear and suspension are tighter than a friends much newer full- size domestic truck with 1/6th the miles. Manual transmission and original clutch.

I currently have 131000 miles on my truck all I have done is oil changes. Truck runs like a top. Yeah, the seats are not good, but hey its a truck.




205,000 miles still rolling

Vehicle: 1999 Toyota Tacoma SR5 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

I bought this new from a dealership in 1999 trading in my 1996 Tacoma with 300,000}+ miles on it (should have kept it as back up it was still running great but was STD cab) This truck has been through 2 front end collisions one costing over $16,000 in damages, two side hits and one roll down a hill! It has spent many months in body shops. Regardles of how hard I beat it to death it still keeps going. I've had to replace the clutch at 200k which was the first major part excluding parts replaced in accidents. All in all I will never buy another make or model. Hopefully Toyota will see this and send me one for my family of 5. It's a bit cramped! I'll drive it to death & then try to buy another

I like the ride quality and the reliability, but the seats are horrible! If you buy this truck and plan on going on those long trips then I recommend that you purchase some new seats. "back pain, big time!" all of the other tacoma owners that i know say the same thing

The performance is awesome. Whenever I need that extra power, it's always there. I've never had a problem with it as far as reliability.

I enjoy the Tacoma. The only complaints i have are with handling on curves (rear end tends to fishtail) also the MPG could be better. I think it is the best looking truck out there.
