This listing is for my 1998 Toyota Tacoma SR5 Truck. It has the 2.7 Liter 4 cylinder motor mated to the 5 speed manual transmission. It is a 4WD model with the extended cab. The bed of the truck has a bed liner and is in great shape. The exterior of the truck is in good shape w/ some clear coat separation occurring in a few spots. I have provided pictures of these areas.
The interior is in FANTASTIC shape. The seats are free of any tears or stains. There is no abnormal wear. The carpets are in great shape. No funny smells. Non smoker car. There are the fold on jump seats on the extended cab, and Toyota Floor mats come w/ it. There's an aftermarket Pioneer CD head unit installed.
The truck has 220k miles on it and it runs great! I would not hesitate to drive this truck anywhere. Its been very well maintained and has just had new spark plugs, plug wires and all of the fluids changes. The brakes and tires are in solid shape w/ no odd vibrations of noises. Also, the truck has AC and it is VERY cold. It starts up every time, and has never left me stranded. It does not leak any fluids or make any funny noises. Just a solid, well kept Toyota engine.
The frame is a huge problem area for these trucks. The frame on this truck is in fantastic shape. It has always been undercoated and came out of southern Virginia. Its free of any major rust, holes or anything else. Its one of the better frames I've seen on a Toyota truck, that's for sure.
The 4WD engages, the brakes stop, the clutch grabs and feels great. You can cruise at 70mph w/ the AC on and do reasonably well on fuel thanks to the peppy 2.7L 4 cylinder.
If you have any questions feel free to call me at 443 470 9036.

While the cost of building a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle continues to go down over time, reports over the last few years have steadily maintained that the first Toyota hydrogen-powered vehicles for customers should ring up for around $50,000. Company officials cited this figure way back in 2010, and have reiterated it in subsequent years.
So, while a recent Automotive News report about the cost of Toyota's 2015 Hydrogen car doesn't offer up any new figures, it does offer an interesting pricing wrinkle. According to the report, the "cost factor" for the hydrogen vehicles will be in the $50k ballpark, meaning the retail price could be anywhere from there, up to as much as around $100,000.
Toyota has already paid out millions and billions of dollars in settlements surrounding unintended acceleration, but the first lawsuit in the matter, which headed to a California court in July, has reached a verdict. Following the 2009 death of Noriko Uno, whose 2006 Camry was hit by another car and then sped out of control before crashing into a tree, the jury found that Toyota was not at fault in the crash.

Even though the 2006 Camry (shown above) wasn't involved in any of the unintended acceleration-related recalls and it was not equipped with a brake override, Automotive News reports that the jury's verdict says there was no defect in the car and actually blames the entire incident on the driver that ran into Uno's car - to the tune of $10 million. The accident started when the other driver ran a stop sign and hit Uno's car, and the report says that medical conditions (including diabetes) caused Uno to fail to stop her Camry.
The AN article also states that this lawsuit was a bellwether case for around 85 other personal-injury and wrongful-death suits against Toyota, but there are still many impending suits across the country. Scroll down for an official statement on this particular case from Toyota.
Consumer Reports has released its annual Car-Brand Perception Survey, and the list looks awfully familiar. The top six brands are identical to last year's results, with Toyota, Ford and Honda continuing to occupy the podium. All told, Toyota walked away with 133 points, putting it 15 ahead of second-place Ford. Honda jumped 26 points this year, narrowing Ford's lead to just four points in total.
Consumer Reports polls buyers from across the country on how they see multiple brands in seven categories, including quality, safety, value, performance, design/style, technology/innovation and environmentally friendly/green. Researchers then combine the findings to come up with the total brand score.
While value and performance remain important to buyers, CR found quality and safety are still on top when it comes to significance. Scion and Mitsubishi found themselves at the bottom of the pack with the worst score of all, tied at just six points. Ram, Fiat and Mini filled out the lowest five with scores of seven, eight and 10 points, respectively.
