2000 Toyota Tacoma SR-5 from North America
A great reliable vehicle that is built to last
Passenger seat broke at 137,000 miles and had to be fixed. (It was jammed in the fold down position).
Engine light turned on at 135,000 (will need a sensor, which will cost $300).
I love this truck and will drive it until it comes apart. This is my second Toyota truck (I had an 1988, which had 130,000 on it and drove like new, but it was stolen).
I have the SR-5 extra cab version and really like the extra room in the back. Not enough for two adults, but you can squeeze them in if you really need to.
The engine and standard 5 speed transmission have never given me any problems. The original clutch is still working fine.
The inside has normal wear and tear and other than the passenger seat breaking at 137,000 miles, everything is working fine. A/C, stereo, heater, fan, lights.
Toyota makes great cars and trucks and I highly recommend them. They are pricey, but worth it. Reliable trucks that are built to last.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
