    Ahh, kind of sad in a way but the big day came and went and she turned over to 100K. I have to say, it literally seemed like it took an eternity for her to click over from 99,999 to the big 100. Almost like she was holding back. :(

    I have to say, if you did not know the mileage of this truck, you would have absolutely no idea it had this many miles. It drives extremely tight (almost feels like power assist steering) with no creeks or rattles anywhere with a very solid overall feel. The interior is in fantastic shape and does not feel or look worn anywhere. For example none of the markings on any of the the buttons on the radio show any signs of wear and the seats do not have any rips or tears on them either, although a nice set of seat covers is planned in the near future. ;) This truck has been amazing and not one thing has ever gone wrong. Nothing.

    I am so happy to be able to own one of the few vehicles on the road today that was built to last. Like I said, it is far from being broken in and with proper care, it will have absolutely no problem going the distance.

    Verdict is, the quality of a first generation Tacoma is not something you will find in every vehicle.

    I love how your truck is two years older than mine, but has half the miles. Haha.

    Nice truck! Looks like you take very nice care of it.

    Keep it up and it'll have no problem going as long you want it to.
