Dependable, Cozy Little Truck is Great for Driving Around Town and Longer Trips for 2

We were given this truck 6 years ago by extended family members. It is a 2002, and they had only put eight thousand miles on it! Yes, that's right: 8,000. In the subsequent six years, we've added approximately 50,000 to it, and it has been such a good, dependable little truck. So far, no major issues beyond the usual upkeep. The bench front seat is fairly comfortable. The back seat has two fold down seats. If we had kids, it would be okay for short trips. Any more than that would be a little claustrophobic, I would think. The bed is large enough to haul medium sized furniture. For us, it's the perfect size. We've taken it on long trips in addition to about town jaunts. Our engine is a little underpowered. Steeper inclines take a bit more gas, and moving to the slow lane is a must. That's really the only drawback we've found so far, for our needs anyway. As long as we keep up with maintenance, I'm sure it'll last us a long, long time.

The body would go bad before the engine does.

I have a 2002 Toyota Tacoma, this is the best reliable vehicle I have ever owned. I have never had problems with it, just basic wear and tear. Its an extended cab, has a cassette and CD player, it's an sr5 plenty of room to carry 2 kayaks in. The only problem that I had with my truck was the dashboard there was a rattle so I had to take my truck in a couple times to get it fixed. They could not fix it for some reason, so they ordered me a new dashboard and put it in. My truck gets about 25 miles to a gallon.

My truck may be old but it runs like new.

I purchased my truck used. It seems old when considering it's from 2002, however I'm nearing the 200,000 mile marker and it runs amazing. I do regular maintenance on it such as oil changes, brake replacements and things like that on my own. I've only had to take it into the shop for one minor issue that was caused by something I did to it myself. The truck has been so reliable and fun to drive, I hope to have it for another 100,000 miles.
