Who has one and are they reliable like the 4.0
I donít need the power and will be used as a service
Vehicle for wildlife and pest control. Current have a
2013 with 275.000 mile on it and never had to do any major
Repairs. A/c pump went at about 260.000 and thatís it.

Thanks

That 4 cylinder is not as good as the pre 2004 ( rs 22 I think it was called) the newer ones have more horse power but are not as nimble???? Kind of doggy. I put 250,000 on 2 of the older type engines and 250,000 on one of the newer types. Love the older type. Prefer the 6 cyl in the newer modles

I've got an 09, same motor as my moms 17, and my dad has an 05 with the same motor that is currently setting because it is only running on three cylinders. . . but it has 426,000 on it and very few issues up until then. Mine is the SR (base model) and they came with higher gears than other models. Mine is WAY too high geared, but the motor hasn't had an issue, only 150K on it, which is just getting broke in for a Toyota. I know my moms is also a base model and while its gears are higher than the other models, they are lower than the ones in my truck, depends on the year which gears were put in them. Something to check on when buying.

Mine is a 5 speed, extended cab, 4x4 and the gas mileage isn't spectacular. It gets good empty (low twenties) but with a snowmobile trailer behind it I'm getting 14-15 mpg, and about the same with a fourwheeler trailer. Got an old 89 with the 22re, and even with a lift and 4.88 gears it does about 17 pulling the same trailer and 20 empty. Had a 2000 with the 3.4 V6 and it did as good as my newer four cylinder pulling a trailer and around 20 empty. And it actually had enough power its tongue wasn't hanging out whenever you came to a hill. That truck I sold at 400,000 (it is still being driven today) and the only thing I had ever done to the motor was change oil, change timing belt a couple times, spark plugs twice, and changed a fuel injector that went bad. Oh and the alternator twice. I've owned half a dozen 22re four cylinders, the new 2.7 four cylinder and that 3.4 V6. In my mind the 3.4 was the best motor Toyota made, but most of their motors are good.

I had a 1990 4x4 extended cab with 5 speed manual had the 22 RE motor. 30 MPG and good power
Got a 2006 almost identical, even the color. 4 cyl motor, less power and 20 MPG.
I have a Ram 2500 Long bed with a 6.4 and I get 19 MPG.
Ill keep a Toyota, they have the tightest turning radius of any truck I have driven. On farm and timber land paths that a big deal. Their light and won't sink down like a heavy truck. My Ram would have trouble turning around on a football field and is heavy. It will leave tire marks on a dry field.

I've got a 2015. 2.7 Tacoma. I get about 21mpg on short trips. Haven't checked it on long hauls. Plenty of power to get me in and out of snow and mud while hunting and trapping.


Good Luck

Yes 4 wheel drive. Gas mileage varies as per what we do but usually mid 20s, Best was 31.

The V6 motors have somewhat changed over the years. Last year of the V6 using a throttle body injector was 2015. Toyota went to direct injection in 2016. While most manufacturers have some issues with carbon buildup on valves due to direct injection, I haven't seen many complaints about Toyota motors.

Think I'd still look for a lower mileage 2015.

That could go either way. Depending upon the company the truck could have low miles but high idle time. Company vehicles can also be well maintained too so it could go either way. I guess I would probably more concerned about the condition of the frame than anything. Just my 2 cents worth.

The maintenance records on carfax look great.
I wonder how the roads are in New Jersey for salt. That is
Where it appears to be from

Im not from NJ,but I'm 50 miles west from NJ.They use salt but not as much, i bet, than we do west of them.Closer to the coast, the lesser the freezing of roads because of warmer temps.But they still use salt I bet without knowing for sure.

I have a 96 3.4 with 320,000 frame is good for all but back by the rear bumper , I'm on the coast so we get salt in the air from the ocean plus road salt. But some newer models look worse then mine underneath, so get plenty of frame pictures if you plan on having it shipped.
