One Tough Truck
By incker on
Vehicle1994 Toyota Pickup DX V6 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB
ReviewI am one of the few people who truly
uses 4WD on a regular and necessary
basis. This tough little Toyota
(3.0L V6 w/ manual trans/manual hubs)
will outperform anything I have owned,
and is apparently due to a good
balance of wheelbase, weight, and
tires. Low end torque is impressive.
I've not put any $$ into this vehicle
(98K miles) other than routine
maintenance. Timing belt was
replaced at 66K miles when recall
replaced the head gasket. Toyota paid
for the belt labor and I had to only
pay for the belt itself. Would I buy
another?... in a heartbeat!
Best FeaturesA V-6 engine that pulls like a diesel. This vehicle in 4WD, low range, will crawl anywhere. At 75 MPH on the highway, it tracks for miles without corrective steering... and has NEVER been aligned!! No rattles ever. A relatively comfortable long range cruiser.
Worst FeaturesGas mileage is my singular and sole complaint. I record every tank, and average 23.1 on the highway, and 18.3 in combination driving. An interior remote release for the gas tank door would be nice in lieu of the key entry.
