    Anybody else seen the video of the 190k mile Toyota Hilux (diesel that looks just like Tacoma) that they tested? It had 190k miles... they drove it down some stairs, crashed it into a tree, parked it in the ocean for 5 hours, crashed it thru a shed, dropped a trailer on it, hit it with a wrecking ball, lit it on fire, and for the last test they parked it ontop of an old apartment complex that was being demolished and the truck fell 200 feet with the rest of the building. No parts replaced, only simple tune ups with basic tools and the truck started after every test... still drove too. I tip my hat to the engineers at Toyota. I'd buy a diesel Tacoma any day!!
