1996 Toyota T100 DX 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


162,000 miles and I've replaced nothing but one timing belt (routine) and a U-joint. This truck looks the same year after year and there are only a couple very small rust spots starting around the wheel wells that never seem to get any worse, even with the NY winter road salt. Eleven years old and 162,000 miles and I would not hesitate to drive this thing across country and back. It's been an excellent truck.

Best Features

Very capable 4WD, smooth ride as compared to the Tacoma, comfortable during long trips, never breaks down, always starts, and rarely needs repairs of any kind.

Worst Features

Seat belt retractors, I've replaced the throttle cable 3 times in 5 years because it starts to stick and gives the gas pedal a 'sticky' feeling, brakes wear out fairly quickly. All minor issues, really.
