My truck lasted 272, 000 miles before needed a new frame. (under warranty).

I bought this truck in early 2006, with 5000 miles on it. Everything else looked new. I changed oil every 3000 for the first 150, 000 miles and then every 5000 miles or so after that. I have 273, 000 miles now and I have had very few problems. 'Toyota gave me a new frame on my third try, and the dealership apologized because I should have gotten one on my first try. . Someone was trying to buy me truck and sell me another one. I changed power steering line and the rear brake seals only. Everything else is still original equipment. Even the muffler lasted until I had 270, 000 miles. Rock solid dependable.

I do not know what to say there's plenty of room.

My husband and my husband and I bought our Toyota 2 years ago we had one recall on something that the dealership fixed otherwise we have had no problems whatsoever with this pickup. My husband and I think is in love with his pickup he said he will never buy another one he's going to keep this one forever he said he is 63 years old I am 70. Actually it may be the last pickup we ever buy it was a good choice it is a good running pick up general maintenance is all we've had to do with it next my husband has to get the oil changed the engine is perfect and it starts every time.

Use the Toyota off-road rear in differential it works amazingly well.

I love my Tacoma. It is a off-road package truck, and when you put the lock in rear differential it works tremendously well. I believe it is almost as good as having four-wheel-drive. I don't use it very often but when I do it is amazing. I don't have any issues with my truck I highly recommend this vehicle. Especially to someone who uses it off-road wise it is good on gas but yet it’ll go through the mud rock rough terrain beautifully. It runs perfectly fine I have never had any issues mechanically wise the only thing I have ever had wrong with my truck is a flat tire.
