Summary:

Very dependable and gets me anywhere I need to go.

Faults:

The clutch plate collapsed at about 190,000 miles and a radiator hose cracked shortly after, but other than that, there has been nothing wrong with the truck mechanically.

General Comments:

They seats aren't the most comfortable, but they, and the whole interior are in excellent condition.

The paint is chipping on the hood and the light gray decals on the sides are faded, but I still think it is a very good looking truck considering how old it is.

Summary:

The amazing Japanese creation!

Faults:

Almost nothing. The carburetor wore out at around 198,000 miles and I replaced it with a compatible Weber. The head and gasket had to be replaced because of a stripped spark plug, but other than that it has just been general maintenance (like timing chain, plugs, wires, etc.)

General Comments:

This truck is awesome!The truck has over 200,000 miles on it, and it still runs perfectly, almost like new. The engine is quick and quiet, and in my opinion, the 22R is one of the best engines ever produced. The suspension is stiff, but tough as I have not had to replace any of the stock equipment. The 4wd and front hubs work perfectly, and the truck will climb almost anything you steer it at. It is a lovely daily driver, and has been a great automobile!!

I can't believe how well this car runs with all these miles on it. I hope it lasts another 100,000.
