1986 Toyota Pickup Long Bed 22R from North America
The best truck ever made
I had to put a reverse gear in at 140k miles.
I had to redo the bench seat.
Front engine seal about every 75k miles. Until the last one, which was a retrofit kit from Toyota that has lasted 110k miles.
Timing chain cut from engine to coolant. Had repaired with upgraded parts and has been fine since.
The little guy drinks about a quart of oil per 700-900 miles. No leaks, or smoke, it just uses it.
The rest is nothing more than tires, batteries, brakes, 3 clutches, 1 set of shocks. I expect this truck to make it another 10 years.
I own a landscaping business on the side, so this truck hauls 200-500 lbs regularly and it always starts and gets me home.
I can afford new, but would rather see how long this one will last.
I will see you all in 5-10 more years.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
