    Just wanted to post up that I hit 100,000 miles a few days ago. I have a 2006 Tacoma DC 4x4 that I bought brand spanking new from Frank Smith Toyota in McAllen, TX. It had 15 miles and was on the lot for 1 day shipped from Houston.......low and behold after doing some research I found out my truck was assembled in the famed Nummi plant in Fremont, Cali. (which is now closed). This plant was "considered the worst workforce in the automobile industry in the United States", according to the United Auto Workers. Anyways, I love my truck and it has been flawless. The only maintanance that I have done to it other than mods and upgrades are:

    1. Serpentien Belt - $80 (belt and labor)
    2. New front brakes - $100 (dealer w/ coupon)
    3. New Plugs - $30 (self)
    3. Coolant Change - $40 (self)
    4. New Battery - $100 (New Sears Platinum on CL)
    5. New Tires - $500 (New BFG 285's on CL)

    I have to say that that spending $850 in needed maintanance over 4 years is pretty damn good. And it's paid off too! :D

    Congrats op. I don't even buy my Toyota trucks until they hit 100k. You get a huge discount that way and ya know they'll last another 150k no problemo! Just gotta make sure and do homework to ensure they haven't been abused.

    Very please with my Tacoma, I wouldn't expect anything less......:D. It's good to know that any extra cash I have can go towards mods versus trying to keep it alive like other car brands!

    I averaged about 25k miles a year. Should have been a truck driver.

    Lets see I average 16 mpg and gas has averaged about $2.50 (over the 4 year period). So I have spent $15,625 dollars in gas over a 4yr period averaging 25k miles a year. I could have already bought a new tacoma with that money.......damn!

    25000/16=1562.5
    1,562.5 gallons over a 1yr period (damn that's alot of gas). :eek:

    1562.5x$2.50=$3,906.25
    $3,906.25 dollars in gas over 1yr (damn that's alot of mod. money). :eek:

    $3,906.25x4yrs=$15,625 (double damn thats alot of coin, I'm pissed now knowing this)!
