1993 Toyota Pickup 22REI from North America
If you want a small truck, there is no better choice
The seat belts do not retract very well.
The brakes needed to be replaced at 140,000 miles.
After using it for fairly heavy loads, the rear springs are starting to sag a little.
The door locks are getting very worn, and it is hard to use the key to lock or unlock them.
The plastic trim around the door locks on both sides failed right after purchase.
Overall this has been a typical Toyota vehicle. FANTASTIC. It is the third Toyota pickup that I have owned, and the only real fault I can think of is that it just doesn't wear out quick enough. I would like to get a new truck, but there is no reason to get rid of this one yet. It starts and runs flawlessly, almost no change from new. I expect it easily to last at least another 200,000 miles.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have noticed everyone of these problems occurring in my Toyota as well except the door-locks fading. I know a guy with a 93 Toyota pickup, he has a little more than 330,000 miles on his. Toyota trucks will drive forever if you let em!

I have a 1993 Toyota standard cab with the 2.2 RE engine and a five-speed stick. This is bar-none the most reliable vehicle I have ever owned! I will do my next oil change at 170,000 and I'm still driving the original clutch! I've changed out the radiator, but beyond that it has all been standard maintenance like oil changes and brakes and periodic tuneups. I'm still getting 30 mpg and I'm beginning to think this truck is going to last longer than I am. And yes, my next truck (if I ever wear this one out) will be a Toyota!
