1991 Toyota T100 3.0 from North America
Its been a fairly OK truck, not to good not too bad
Clutch slips badly when going up hills, sometimes I can barely make it up a VERY steep hill. this makes pulling my boat now useless, especially out of the water at a boat launch.
Headliner is down.
Suspension creaks and groans over large bumps, i.e. speed bumps, rocks, etc.
Original radio shorted out, it was the tone button, making it blurry and you would have to beat the dash to make it work. have replaced it with a nice sony, but the original speakers can't keep up with it.
Head gasket not long back.
The rear quarter panel has been rusting near the inner wheel well since I got it from my mother.
Other than that, nothing.
It was my mom's truck, whom insisted she have a truck, then never really used it. its been fairly reliable. the only problem with it that left us stranded was the head gasket, with my bed full of yard debris and the sight didn't look good. it goes fairly well, with no load. when I'm towing my boat it does it fine, but I could feel the engine really struggling. it towes well up untill I get to a hill, then the clutch just lets go. It's a great off-road truck, can't get it stuck. the 4x4 in this thing is amazing. 4-low jsut goes and goes, and its impossible to kill the engine. The interior is horridly uncomfortable. The bench seat is by far the most uncomfortable my behind has ever experienced. And a vinyl roof liner? I don't like how tight the gears are in this thing, its easy to shift into the wrong gear. DANGERIOUSLEY easy, as I have done it many times, and every single person that has drivin it has. this probably contributed to the clutch starting to go. one weird thing about this truck though, is that I can launch it at full throttle, and the clutch doesn't slip, but once I get ton that hill over yonder, oh boy. overall it's a pretty good little truck. not the most comfortable of things, but it will get done what it needs to get done.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I have had both import and domestic over the years. A few I said you would keep forever but upgraded. Once you own a full size especially, it's hard to live without one. Personally I like automatics with power steering and air. And a tow package option. Nowadays the domestic full sizes are as nice as a loaded SUV. Smooth and comfortable. Gas costs a bit more, but it's still better.
