Yep - they get close to $30K loaded brand new. Which is a little above my budget for a small truck. It should easily make it to 250K miles with routine maintenance

I was expecting Taco Bell or Del Taco or something... oh wait.. this is Anything Auto, not Off-Topic... :p

Nice truck! :thumbup: My uncle traded his in with 220K miles for a Tundra and it was still going strong.

Nice...Ok I see where the price comes from...

Yea thats what they say....250k+

However the way things been with my wifes Previa....Im not sure if thats true...I hope so.

She only has 110k on a 92....but leaks more oil then I spill when I change the oil in the Passat..... :(
I wouldn't judge Toyota's reliability by a 92' Previa, any more then I would judge VW's reliability by a 92' Passat.

Well to be honest I have a friend with a 92 Passat and its been more reliable then any other car hes had.....including many Hondas and Toyotas...but Im sure thats just luck....just like with any car.

I am getting about 16-17 MPG with mixed driving. Still only get about 250 miles before I have to put $25 into it.
