Best Vehicle I've Ever Owned

1997 Toyota T100 SR5 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


I bought this vehicle new and have put nearly every mile on it. The truck has far exceeded my expectations. It is now over 11 years old and has 215,000 miles on it. Outside of normal maintenance items, the only things I've replaced are the driver's seat belt, a $30 switch to the 4wd solenoid, and the CV boots. That's it! The truck averages 20 mpg which I consider great for a nearly full size truck with 4wd. It does have the manual transmission and I'm still on the first clutch but shifting is starting to get rougher (synchronizer?) Driving at 65 mph with no A/C, it gets 21 to 23 mpg. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone looking for a reliable truck. I wish they still made them!

Best Features

Timeless styling, reliability, economy in a 4wd.

Worst Features

Back seat is more for kids than adults, timing belt replacement at required 60,000 mile interval is expensive if done at dealer
