I Made A Great Decision In Buying It. Will Do It Again If I Live That Long - Another 26 Years!! — I love this truck still. Which is why I still have it. It has/had it all - Comfort, Quality and Performance. It's been an "outdoor car" most of its life & paint job is showing. A small tear in the upholstery on driver seat. Cassette player is obsolete now.

Great Truck — I miss this little guy. I bought this truck when I was 16 and it was my first car. I had it for 10 years. I actually sold it once and then bought it back from the person I sold it to the next year. I missed it so much. I drove it from 44K miles to 140K miles before the head gasket finally blew. I was forced to buy a new car and sell this one to my mechanic. I still think about her!

Amazing — This truck is amazing i have an 89 sr5 extended cab and it has to be my most favorite truck in the world. with 200k miles and still hauls its built like nothing else. its a 5 speed stick. and it gets crazy good mpg. the back seats fold up for more room in the back of the cab, and the drivers seats have great lumbar support controll. this is an amazing car to drive.

Wants Find A Reilable Last Long Truck, Toyota Is The One Are Last Longer. — it very reilable tough truck, 4wd is unstoppedable offroad ever! the gas mileage is ok, but better then V8 gasmilage. the V6 engines are not tough engine, a 22RE 4cylinder inline is toughtest bulletproof engine ever build. toyota pick up is really fun driveable truck, and i love to drive standard than auto. the performance is not for racing, it real last longest truck on road trucks and offroad. the gears ratio is very high torque ends and less speed.

Toyota For Moving Truck — I owned the truck for a short while. Nissy (Nissan Pulsar) died with another clutch job and I traded the Nissan in for the Toyota. I was also moving to Colorado at the time, so the truck was a good selection over the sporty small car. The truck worked great, even with freezing engine oil. It hauled the dogs and stuff to Colorado.

Best Truck Ever — Stock toyota suspension blows. the engine has plenty of pulling power and acceleration for what it is. It has great lines, easy mods, and effecient. They were right when it got truck of the year!! If you're looking for a great Toyota truck look no further.

Big Red Machine — The appearance of this truck is beautiful. I have been told on numerous occasions that people can't believe it is an 89. The motor is strong and has lots of torque, but when it comes to the freeway it's kinda a dog, very comfortable interior and everything from the factory still works great. Has needed a new stereo since I bought it but it works so I'm living with it. What else can I say it's a Toyota, basically bulletproof.

1989 Toyota 2wd Pickup — This is the most dependable little two wheel drive truck ever. it ran even when it should have been physically impossible and its just a great all around gas saving hauling machine. i would definetly recommend one to those new high school drivers as it is easy to drive and quite a money saver.
