1988 Toyota Pickup short bed from Japan
The worst thing is the clutch seal keeps leaking and replacing it costs 200-400 bucks. So right now I am just keeping a watch on the clutch fluid and topping it off when necessary. My mechanic, known since before I got this truck, says he has seen several with the same problem. Other than that, it's been very good. I intend to keep it.
Acceleration is still very good. Best to keep some weights in the truck bed, though, as you could fishtail in ice and rainy weather.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I agree with your experience. No problems as I have driven standard 1988 Toyota Pickup between 147K and 180K miles. I can't find an owner's/shop manual and wonder what weight the truck will tow safely, without damaging something...

My clutch stopped working so I checked the fluid reservoir, and it was empty. I topped it up and let it sit for a day, but the gears still won't engage. Do I have to prime it somehow to get the gear oil into the transmission? The clutch feels very loose.
