    I just bought a 2007 Tacoma, access cab, auto, 4X4, V6. It has 89,000 miles on it. I know that is high mileage for 3 year old truck, but it is in like new condition. Just by looking at it and driving it, without knowledge of the miles, I would guess maybe 20,000 miles. Anyway, no complaints, runs and shifts great. I am wondering if it is advisable to perform all the maintenance the owner's manual lists for 90,000? This includes changing all the oils, belts, plugs, pretty much everything but an overhaul. I plan on keeping this truck for 2-3 years before trading. What are your thoughts? Waste of money or good prevention?

    Probably worth the couple 100 bones it'll cost you to get all new fluids and filters. Plugs is a good idea. If the belts look good I wouldn't worry about those.

    Don't fret. I have an 06 that just turned 112,000. I change the oil regularly, had the tranny done, changed the plugs and wires and so far so good. Thinking about the diff fluids though. Runs like new.

    i bought a 06 used, half of your mileage. i changed all the fluids except the tranny, and changed the plugs. my front and rear diff's oil was amazingly dirty.

    i looked at all the receipts, and changed all the stuff that wasnt done.

    Yeah, the truck is in great shape, but I have no record of any past maintenance. So I will probably just go ahead and do everything the manual suggests. I bought a service book for 05-09 Tacomas, so I can save quite a bit of money by doing some of the maintenance myself. Thanks for all the advice!

    And there's a lot of DIY help with pics on the forums. For example, here's an excellent one for the front/rear differentials and the transfer case:

    There are many others out there for the rest of the maintenance.
