    I’m curious to know how much on a monthly basis does your Tacoma cost?

    (Insurance, gas, How far you travel, repairs, upgrades, miscellaneous)


    Please list your trucks specs like;

    • Engine size
    • Tire size
    • Gearing ratio
    • Manual/Automatic

    Vehicle:
    07 AC SR5 2.7 5MT 4x4
    tonneau
    2009 AC 4.0L 6 speed manual 4WD, stock 3.73
    245/75R16 tires

    insurance $143/mo
    fuel cost for previous year works out to $210/mo, I drive about 20 miles to work

    synthetic gear lubes about $120, won't have to worry about this for a while
    tonneau was under $300
    cruise parts were $160
    mobil 1 oil + toyota filter, every 4 months, about $35
    toyota denso air filter $14
    state of michigan wants $120 a year for me to rent my own truck

    it would be a lot cheaper if it ran on mr fusion like a certain delorean
