by from indiana on December 5, 2006

i'm the original owner and have had very few problems with this truck. it has over 100,000 miles but still runs great and looks great. it was well-maintained and waxed regularly.

So my wife had a 2000 tacoma pre runner new off the lot when i met her, part of the reason I fell for her 13 years ago ! A really nice truck but no real offroad ability in the colorado high country. It was a such a great truck, that i bought a nearly identical 96 tacoma loaded with a standard tranny, locking manual hubs and sported a slighly peppier 2.7l engine. This truck is rock solid and takes on all the colorado high country has to offer it gets great mpg for such an effeciant onroad/off road machine averaging 19-20 combuned hiway town miles. Love the truck, love the compatibility of years for parts to it makes keeping it looking fresh easy and affordable.

Best truck ever made imo

At 340,000 miles the 3.4 v6 is so quiet at idle I sometimes think it stopped running. I’ve hauled a 10,000 pound trailer load of equipment up rediculous steep grades in low range 4wd many times. 5s...
At 340,000 miles the 3.4 v6 is so quiet at idle I sometimes think it stopped running. I’ve hauled a 10,000 pound trailer load of equipment up rediculous steep grades in low range 4wd many times. 5speed manual is bullet proof, tons of torque, no leaks no problems except for a radiator replacement at 310 kmiles. I can’t wear this thing out, what a work truck!
