1997 Toyota Tacoma LX 2.7 - 4cly from North America
Very reliable and tough, best in class by far
Starter contacts failed out - removed started replaced contacts and plunger reinstalled started myself.
Brakes - Replaced front rotors/pads rear drums/shoes myself.
With regular oil changes, tires, filters, cleaning I think it will go forever.
The most reliable and durable vehicle I have ever owned. I would recommend extra cab model for the additional space up front. 2.7 is strong for a four cyl. 4X4 works very well, even pulled a full size Chevy out of trouble on the beach.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
