1999 Toyota Tacoma SR5 Prerunner 3.4 V6 from North America
Tough and loyal. You'll love it like your dog
Nothing but old fuses. Took two seconds to change out.
Tough. Perfect for your outdoors lifestyle.
I have driven this truck to 49 states and all of Canada. Never a problem.
Drove it from Florida to Alaska's north slope. Never a problem.
Rally raced it on the empty roads of the Yukon. Launched it into the air and slammed it back down on landing. Beat the crap out of it. Never a problem.
Did I mention 60,000 miles of 5000 lbs trailers at 80mph? Never a problem.
I love my Tacoma like a man loves his dog.
I'll be loyal to the end.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Exactly right. I have the same truck, but a '98 standard shift.
I just got back a while ago from hauling enough scrap cement blocks that I am truly glad I don't know how much they weighed. Had to drive OVER more blocks and dirt to get to where they needed to be unloaded.
Last week, I drove it across a 2 foot or so deep creek to gather stones for a landscaping project, and next month I'm taking it on an 2200 mile round trip to Florida and back, as I have done many times before (in between off roading it and generally beating the hell out of it).
I get between 21 and 23 miles to the gallon through all of this; fantastic for a 4 wheel drive v-6 truck. I have put exactly ZERO dollars in repairs in it.

I have the same truck, and I bought it used a couple of years ago. It's automatic, but it runs great and I have had no problems, but for a valve set on the gear box that clogged due to an unnoticed oil leak. Fixed in no time, and up and running again. I thought to trade it in, but my wife and I just decided to trade in her car (a newer Suzuki) and keep my old faithful truck for 4 or 5 more years.
