    As my title says, my new to me '96 Taco is now a year old. A V6 4WD extended cab, 165k miles. Runs like a Toyota should, gets around 19mpg mixed, and wouldn't have any qualms about going to either coast tommorrow (except for gas prices). Love it!!

    Thanks all. After the wreck I was in 2 weeks ago, it probably only has 7 lives left. ;) Except that the police and fire couldn't find anything wrong with my truck, while the other 2 cars had to be towed. One fireman looked at mine, shook his head and said "good thing it was a Toyota". I feel pretty good about my purchase. :D
