04 Toyota Tacoma with 175k+ miles and running great!

Vehicle has over 175,000 miles and the only mechanical issues I have dealt with is various sensors have needed to be replaced. Runs great as long as routine maintenance is performed. It is a very reliable vehicle. The ride could be smoother but it has the off road package so the shocks aren't as soft and don't provide a very smooth ride. Great interior features for the price and inside is comfortable.

Our Toyota Tacoma is very handy for hauling small loads, groceries etc. It is very reliable, we have never had any issues mechanically. We just make sure we are up to date on maintenance and it runs like a top. I would recommend this truck to anyone looking for a small truck. The only thing I would change is having an automatic transmission.

My (now) old Toyota has been extremely dependable. Though it is certainly showing Its age, I can get into the truck and have a strong belief that it will get to and from my planned destination. Because it is a truck, I have found the convenience of having a vehicle that is more useful than a mere passenger car.
