    4.0 v6..synthetic oil change every 5k. I plan on maintaining according to specs if not sooner. this is my first tacoma and just traded a f150 with 173000 on it.
    I'll be happy if i get at least 175000, any thoughts?

    depends on how you use it. highway, 300+ is not unreasonable. If you do a lot of off roading and beat on it, well over 200k sounds about right.

    My Neon was perfectly fine at 165000+ miles when I hit a deer. If that hadn't happened I'd be cresting over 200,000 miles now.

    I bought it new, did most of my own maintenance, including all of the oil changes and switched to synthetic after the first change.

    I see no reason why any modern vehicle shouldn't make it, mechanically, to at least 250,000 miles if it is maintained and repaired when needed.

    That is a first gen though and they have been proven to make very high miles with minimal work. The second gens still need to prove themselves.

    :thumbsup: I hope the quality is up to par with the older models as well. I would hate to see toyota's reputation go downhill.

    Not to start a how amny miles thread, but I have a 2005 SR5 4.0 V6 and to date the biggest issue it has had not self induced was the the from seal on the crank shaft pulley failed at 128,000 miles. I do not offroad it, but hope to get well over 200,000 out of it. I love my truck and have 132,000 on her now, the only thing that would push me to trader her in is a third gen that is just out of this world...
