    none except for crappy hub caps and floor mats.
    So since I've been out of work I have had plenty of time to do maintenance on the taco. I changed the coolant, oil, transmission grease, the air filter, plugs, cap, rotor, wires and a few other things. I also buffed and waxed the paint, cleaned the underside as well as the engine and the interior. Also touched up a few paint chips and replaced the wipers. So She's about as clean as its going to get. 14 years and 225,000 miles. The way its going I could probably have it another 14 years. Its sad that the NUMMI plant is closing because I doubt you could find a better truck that can still basically look and drive like new for this long.
