My '99 has 138,000 and all I have replaced is the tranny. Maybe you just bought a truck made on Friday. LOL

no I won't own a Tacoma, but they are nice I'm just frustrated. I'm pulling all my vacuum lines again tomorrow. I'm not gonna give up yet. I love this truck but I also won't dump money into it. I think it's a vacuum issue.

almost every thread I see you on you talk about your dissatisfaction with your truck. Why have you not sold it or something?

106000 miles on my 03 3.0, I bought it with 38000 on it. No big problems that I havnt caused with my modding. Biggest issue was the alternator had to be rebuilt this month, and I blew it by jump starting it a bunch before buying a battery. I have heard more happy ranger owners with few problems, than I have heard guys with problems.

Every truck could have issues, its a chance with anything man made.

Simple. I'm smart. Its paid off. I have a quad that I'm almost done paying off then I'll be able to save money for a large down on a new or newer car or truck. I'm not going to get myself in a crap load of debt. I like finishing paying for something before I purchase something else.

mines almost paid off.... I would rather put a fraction of the money in a paid for vehicle than pay $400 bucks a month for a new one!

Meh. I'm tired of this truck anyway. It can't tow, you can't put people in it, you can't put anything in the back, the tranny rattles when I take off, the engine rattles at 2800rpm, it rides like crap unless the road is perfectly smooth, power is low compared to others, seats aren't that great and sometimes its hard to shift more than likely due to smashing it in gear every time the slave decides it doesn't like living. Maybe if I had an auto 4door with power everything I'd be a little more satisfied but then Its back to the same thing with the size of it. There are way better trucks out there IMO and I don't mind paying for the better product. I'm to the point where I hate driving my truck. If work was closer I'd just walk. When I bought the truck I got it used at a Toyota dealer. I wasn't looking for a Ford at a Toyota dealer.

Besides, who knows if I'll get another truck. I don't use the bed enough other then when I go riding. A car can make it to the OHV areas and I could alwayas buy a trailer for the quad. I also don't offroad anymore. It got boring.

Given your list of complaints have fun with you civic.... and even though you didn't mention fuel economy you might want to look at the prius... baby blue is a popular color here in Seattle....
