1996 Toyota T100 SR5 4X4 Xtra Cab 3.4 from North America
Air bag sensor has gone bad around 80K. $250 fix and is no big deal.
Seriously, besides general maintenance, that's the only thing that has gone wrong.
This was my uncle's truck, which I bought from him not too long ago. He gave me the history of the truck, which was very brief as you can see above. He was the original owner and didn't drive it that much. He mostly used it for Home Depot runs and to tow boats or 4 wheelers, which is exactly the type of use I currently use it for, although I find myself driving it more and more because it's just an awesome truck.
I always knew the truck was a good truck, just by the way my uncle talked about it at family events, but I couldn't appreciate what he meant until I owned it. What a GREAT truck!
I was worried that the V6 would be underpowered for this size truck. I was wrong. It has plenty of giddy up, even at high speeds, and excellent torque and transfer when towing. It's shockingly powerful.
The interior is excellently crafted and has held up flawlessly (minus the floor mat, which I replaced due to a hole from where your heel rests when using the gas pedal).
The original paint is holding up well. It's a sharp looking truck even after all these years. The design is timeless in my opinion.
Four wheel drive is still in perfect working order. It's a great trail blazer for my hunting trips (not as good as my Jeep on the trail, but then again nothing beats a Jeep on the dirt).
In all, I am super impressed, and I fully plan on owning this truck a long, long time. If you find one - BUY IT. You will be glad you did.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
