Just wanted to reiterate something that has been said many times for these great trucks....how many miles does yours have?
My dad put on 320,000 miles between 1999-2010 on his 1999 4x4 i4 manual Tacoma. Other than oil, tires, filters and gas he replaced the exhaust manifold twice ($200/time). Original clutch and original breaks.
Still going strong with good fuel economy and ZERO oil burned between oil changes. Oil still comes out looking like melted butter.
23-24 highway mpg. Tough truck. Pretty sure 500,000 miles will be easy on this truck. It is the new standard by which I measure vehicles. My 175k 2004 F150 scares some of my friends but I think its just getting broken in.
I will be purchasing a 2012 in the next 6 months with the expectation that 300,000 miles without any major maintenance will be the low end of what I can get from it.
