Daddy's truck

by T100 Girl from | November 15, 2012

I absolutely love my 97 T100. I've hauled hay, horses, a camper (7000lb, 24ft), and just about anything in between and it's not stopped once. The truck was passed down to me when my dad passed away in 07 after he'd been driving it for ten years and put about 95k on it. So, as I grew up steering it up the driveway on his lap, I was naturally chomping at the bit to get behind the wheel myself as soon as I got my driving permit. Since then, I've totaled it twice, bent the frame, and it sustained some hail damage, but every time I fixed it and got it back, it ran just as great as it had before the first wreck. Other than that, I've only replaced the starter, right cv axel boot, and idler arm (the last two I believe must've been damaged in the wrecks anyways) and regular maintenance. I plan on keeping him around as long as I can, though. Maybe one day he'll go to my kids. (Unless by some chance Toyota gets smart and starts making them again!!!) Go T100!

Took a Long Time To Locate The Right Truck

by GreenTee from OK | August 16, 2011

I have been looking for an all around truck; heavy load work, daily driving, and family hauling. I have previously owned a 1990 extended cab toyota truck, a 2001 Tacoma crew cab and sold both. I finally realized that I needed a truck again. However, I needed/wanted a hybrid of these two trucks that I previously owned. I started reading about the T100 and most reviews claimed it to be a good middle sized truck. I finally found a 1997 T100 extended cab, 124k, auto, bench seat and I am very happy I did. I am not sure why these truck are not made anymore...they are the perfect size. I haul wood, atv, hay, and anything I can thinkof. It can haul it and with style. I have gotton up to 22mpg in 75/25% highway/city driving. I would buy this truck again and recommend it.

Burley but modest

by Only Toyota from Westcliffe, CO | January 12, 2011

I love my T100. We bought it used as it was the only pickup with 4 wheel drive and an extended cab with a v6 engine, for under $10k. This thing is a workhorse, can carry and tow a surprising amount of weight and rides smooth. I used this thing to lug teepee poles up jeep trails with a full load in the bed - no problems. Incredible 4wd capacity for a truck it's size. This truck hits the sweet spot, I sold it at 200k miles and wish I could get a brand new one.

Indestructible

by MTP from columbus, oh | July 8, 2010

they just never stop working, nothing ever gives on them beside the normal wear and tear. the engine just keeps on ticking and the transmission is bullet proof (not litterally, although maybe I haven't tried it) It is the perfect size pickup for regular day to day stuff. I have beat up mine but it just goes and goes. The truck never gets stuck either as long as you have the 4WD option and good tires.
