Excellent small truck

Very functional for its size. They do not make small trucks like this anymore so they are a gem. Highly recommend, if you can find one that isn’t ragged out.

Toyota Taco

?98 Taco with 250,000 miles on the clock. The only problem I?ve ever had is I had to replace the factory radiator, it finally gave out after 20 years. I have the 2 door extended cab, not much leg room in the back seats for kids, so it gets a 4 star for comfort. Functionality is 5 star. I have a camper shell on the bed, we take this truck camping and can fit a twin size mattress in the bed and me and my son can truck camp. No more tent camping for us. This truck has handled very well on and off road. I?ve taken it on several 1,000 mile road trips, also several miles into the woods on trails. Wouldn?t hesitate to drive it across the country. These are rock solid trucks and hold their value despite being 20 years old.

Great Truck

I own a 1998 Tacoma 4x4 and love it. The engine will likely never die. I have experienced the frame rust issues that are common on these but everything else has been great. If it wasn't for the rust issue I'd give it 5 stars

Best truck and engine I've ever owned!

Incredible vehicle. The V6 engine on the 1998 Tacoma is indestructible! All around comfort, gas mileage is reasonable. I have had this truck for 10 years after its first owner and it still runs great!

Best truck ever

I have owned a bunch of tacomas, they never let me down. They are the best truck around, super reliable, easy to work on and maintain. Just great little trucks. I always enjoy driving mine and have driven across the country in it many times.
