I bought this truck (a 2000 Tundra SR5 V8) new in December, 1999 and have driven it almost daily ever since.
The only problems I've had with it are a bad oxygen sensor that went out about 7 years ago and the A/C has gone out twice.
I replaced the timing belt at about 120,000 miles and have put about 170,000 miles on the truck since I bought it new.
This truck was used on a small farm and often hauled heavy loads - sometimes exceeding its rated specs, without a problem. Sometimes it was called upon to tow a two-horse trailer for short trips too.
After all these years though, it is still my favorite vehicle to drive, and I prefer it to driving my 2012 Kia Optima.
I'll never sell it.
