1985 Toyota Pickup 2wd xtra cab 4 cylinder carb from North America
This is an amazing vehicle, probably the best I'll ever own
The windshield washer reservoir leaks, but I never bothered to get it fixed.
The parking brake doesn't work.
The plastic bits on the bumper get torn off after a few years.
Rust is taking over.
Great truck, never let me down or left me stranded.
Hauls a surprising amount of cargo for being such a small truck, and never complains.
It's fun to drive, handling is great. Doesn't like to go much faster than 65 mph, but that's fine with me.
We got caught in a snowstorm once, and slid off the freeway into a ditch at 40 mph. It was our fault, we were running all-season tires. The truck climbed right out of the ditch and back onto the freeway. No problems.
We're having a baby soon, so we bought a Volvo 940 wagon, but if not for the baby, I would've been happy to ride the Toyota until the end of time.
Such a great vehicle. Basic, solid as a rock. The way a truck should be. I said I'd buy another Toyota, but probably only one from before the 1990s. Great cars.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
