I bought this vehicle used when it was three years old and had 23K miles on it. It had everything I wanted in a truck: five-speed manual transmission, bucket seats, and the previous owner had added a cap over the truck bed. I bought it from a Toyota dealership.
Story
I've been in two fender benders with this vehicle…one that I thought made it a goner. But the frame was solid, and I had it fixed by a shop that specializes in older vehicles.
Pros
It got great mileage when new—40 MPG on the freeway. I could drive from Seattle to Spokane on one tank of gas. I never had problems with any aspect of the vehicle—any parts that had to be replaced in the engine were due to age. In fact, the original clutch lasted for 150,000 miles. The mechanics love it because it doesn't have all that electronic junk and is easy to work on. It's a sturdy little truck, and I've used its hauling capacity to the max on regular occasions. I've also taken it on cross-country trips (2,000 miles+). Even after all these years, I can still get over 30 MPG on t... (more)
Cons
The main negative thing I can think of about this truck is the cab isn't as insulated as I would like, so long highway drives are noisy. This model didn't come with A/C, which is the only other negative thing about it and only when driving in extreme heat. For speed demons, four-cylinder engines aren't for you, but it works for me.

My Toyota pickup is the most dependable vehicle I've ever owned. In the early years of its life, it got 40 mpg on the highway. I could drive from Seattle to Spokane on a single tank of gas. It ran well even when it needed a tune-up. It has a manual transmission and the first clutch lasted 150,000 miles. It's been like that with every other part - I only had to replace things when they began to get old. Although not a full size truck, it's served me well for all the things you need a truck for - hauling, camping, etc. It gets lots of positive comments now, even in its old age: "look, she's got triangle window vents!". The guys down at the auto repair shop love to work on "the mighty Toyota" on the rare occasions when it needs something replaced. It's been across the country twice and I... (more)
Story
My dog used to ride shotgun and sometimes he'd slip off the bucket seat if I turned too sharply. His claw marks are still in the door upholstery and it's a reminder of him, now that he's gone. My truck isn't just a truck anymore. It's filled will all kinds of travel memories.
Pros
Manual transmission, bucket seats, engine simple to work on, still gets good mileage despite its age (30 mpg), triangle window vents.
Cons
No A/C Insufficiently insulated against highway noise Came with decals on the body (eventually had the truck repainted)

While I knew beforehand the exact make and model of car that I wanted, the staff at McCord's treated me fairly and with respect throughout the car buying process. Overall, it was an excellent buying experience and thankfully, was a very easy car buying experience.
