2nd Gen, high mileage and issues.

Lots of threads asking about 'How many miles on your Taco'

Lets hear from you guys who have:

-High miles (how many)

-Issues and how they were resolved

-How have you driven it? (Just a daily driver?... beat the snot out of it offroad? etc.)

-Your opinion about the durability of your 2nd gen Taco

I'm perfectly happy with my baby, but there is so much complaining going on in so many threads....

82k on my truck, no major issues to this point... I just replaced the brakes last week, and it feels like my suspension is starting to get a little tired. Nothing else though!

106k miles
Daily driver, took her off road a few times, nothing hardcore. I think my power steering pump went out while doing doughnuts.

- Timing chain cover oil leak (not fixing, costs too much)
- Rear leafs of course. (2" AAL fixed that)
- SR5 airbag light (clock spring is broke, fix when I can)
- Power steering pump (ez fix)

Just bought my 07 DC 4x4 two months ago with 98000 local highway miles with local dealer verifying all service and maintenance had been performed. Hit 100k on my way to work this morning and couldn't be happier. 50 mile round trip daily driver and gettin 21.5mpgs. Running Mobil1 and planning on switching to synthetic tranny, diff and transfer case lubes as well. Keeping my fingers crossed.

i have an 06 with 103xxx miles and im hearing the same things on here. my timing chain cover is leaking, clockspring for airbag is out, rear suspension sucks, power steering pump leaking and messed up, and the flimsy ass metal sucks, but other than that they are great. Haha today the lady at toyota of tampa bay told me my airbag could go off at anytime because my clockspring is bad. is that even true?
