Hope I don't get flamed for this but I think the Pre-Tacos were better made then the Tacomas.
The 22RE motor was bulletproof and returned over 20 mpg.
I agree, that truck was bullet proof. I drove it hard... as if it were a WRC car, and it would just ask for more. Part of the reason I didn't buy another manual transmission. Too temping
Mine got 28mpg if drove properly... I usually got 24mpg
I'm sure I'm weepy because I had this truck for 8 years. Longest I ever had a vehicle before that was maybe 2 years. They just didn't last beyond 80K. I never had anything major go wrong on this truck. I changed a starter, brakes, and a thermostat, and besides oil, that's it. If the engine and paint last that long on my new TACO... I'll be one happy permanent Toyota patron.
