    Ok guys so In a few months I will be coming up on a year of owning my truck, I have about 13k on her and I'm trying to force myself into the realization that she is not a new truck anymore. Now I baught my 08 Tacoma used with 1,500 on her and because I got it used from my local Toyota Dealership I got there toyota cirtified used car warranty for 7 years 100k. I thought that was a better deal then buying new at the time and still feel pretty secure that for the most part if anything breaks down on her in the near future it will be covered. But I want to know what repairs you've had to do to your V6 PreRunners and what mileage they broke down at or even what wear items you had to replace that might not be covered under the waranty like belts or breaks. I know these are great trucks but somethings were just made to Fail. I used to work for a nissan dealership a few years back and I can't tell you how many window regulators I Sold for the Frontiers! So lay it on me guys. Iwant to know what I can expect.

    24,000 miles. No repairs. That's practically brand new for a Toyota, though.

    And don't get me started on my '05 Altima 3.5SE. Great engine in a garbage package.

    33K and no major repairs (except the TSB rear spring). other than that, it's just been routine maintenance stuff.

    55000 miles and no repairs at all. Got new tires on today, alittle bigger than stock, totally a better ride than the stock rides. Not even had the TSB suspension done. Past warranty now though...
