    Doubtful. New Toyota isn't as good as back in the day Toyota.

    if you take care of it and they're mostly highway miles, it will most likely make it to 300k

    I guess it would depend on what you'd consider maintenance vs repairs. You'll be replacing bearings, probably pumps (water and fuel), a starter, clutch (manual, maybe full tranny rebuild if you're an auto), head gaskets potentially, batteries, etc... The list gets longer if you live in an area that's heavily salted. That's a long time and a lot of miles. Other items you could consider maintenance are shocks, tires, brake pads, drums, rotors, filters, etc...

    Had a 92 Passeo, well build car. Moved through the family ending with my daughter. Only work needed was brakes and a muffler gasket.

    I think the Tacoma is built even better and should give long service if cared for.

    Probably not that great down there in the valley. We get enough moisture in these parts, and it tends to fog over more down there than even in Seattle. You're looking at rust problems for sure.

    Do you work mostly in Kent? Commute to Seattle? Wait, you're in the prison aren't you? :D Just kidding.

    I'd say you're taking your chances with bearings and suspension whether you offroad or battle the city potholes. I thought I snapped a shaft the other day!

    there are already some reports of some 2005 tacomas with that many miles.
    I would say as long as the frame doesn't rust out and you take care of it, why not?

    Easily if you stay where your truck is unlikely to rust and you will likely save close to or over over $100K if you can make that happen LOL.....Even after major repairs

    Original parts? Doubt it. I would think any bolt on items will go out before then. (alternator, starter, water pump, etc..) Engine I think will hit 200K easy but 300K is pushing it. I think the Toyota SR5 trucks in the 80's early 90's would no doubt hit 300K with ease. No doubt all the added gadgets that our trucks have today have made it more difficult to reach that milestone since there's too many chances for problems with the electrical system that controls the engines performance.

    Why would you wanna milk it that long? By the time it gets that many clicks, it'll be a piece of shit! I think it'll last that long, but it'll be beat by then.

    I'm thinking that electrical systems will fail and total out these trucks before 300k. To many systems with two many possibilties for error. And it won't take much for an electrical diagnostic and fix to make it more cost effective to drive something newer once you get into that high of mileage

    I think the bottom line is, you are going to have to spend some money to make it to 300 k.

    My father had an '88 GMC S10 that went 334k and a '95 Tahoe that went 317k. Neither had any type of significant mechanical failures. Body rusted on the S10, albeit w/ a weak motor, but it was still going! The Tahoe was still going strong, but he traded it in on an '07 pickup. Still amazes me, but goes to show you what regular maintenance can do.
    Point being, if those 2 can do it, so can this!

    Rolled it. Dinted every panel except the tail gate
    i had my 97 taco up to 330,000 before i sold it and it ran like a top killed an alternator though (after market stereo and no campasitor?= to much draw) other than that just maintenance like brakes, bushings, u joints and ect.

    so i figure that you should be able to hit that mark
