Mine is just over 17 years old, 357,000 on the clock (I bought it new). Apart from Tyres, Battery's I haven't had any major repairs, I have just done the brakes, but I didn't go to Toyota for this as

Could not get a Grab in our village last week. Went to where the yellow songthaews park. Guy in an Izusu TFR parked there, no passengers. Agreed to take me to superhighway for 200 baht. Sat

Engine runs well, very smooth, not a leak anywhere. transmission fine, in the early days oil changed regular, however the last few years has been only when I remember, the last one was about 24,000km.

Usually the most expensive thing is the transmission.

 

300,000+ km is not unusual for diesel engine.

 

 

Thank you, do you know how much is the transmission for this car and when it should be changed ?

The brakes certainly weren't expensive.. I haven't had any other repairs, that's why I will not sell the car, I consider I have had a brilliant run and touch wood I am not jinxing that by writing here.

 

 

 

Engine is ok, no leaking oil ?

Have synthetic oil all its life ? and changed oil every 10000 kms ?

What about the transmission ?

 

Thanks again.

I had a 2008 3.0L Vigo until 2018.  Changed tires, battery, Toyota service until about 90k, then just changed oil.  I sold it at 180k km and bought my 4th Toyota truck.  Never a major problem.  I was getting an average of 27mpg on the 3.0.  On my 2018 2.2L Revo, I'm getting 38mpg (conservative driver).  The truck easily has as much power as the 3.0.

Am hoping to do the same with my Isuzu, 100.000 + so far, it is a Lorry factory so should be easily possible.
Landcruiser of same age had some issues with drive shaft but have to admit it been used on weekend safaris in the sand quite a few times.
my longest run was a 15+ year Subaru with Petrol engine ( from their Aircraft engineers.) think it is still going 5 years after selling it.
Having said that,  the older the car gets, the more critical the servicing usually becomes,

preventive maintenance and all that.

220,000 om my 11 year old Vigo. Tyres and battery - little else except the ABS lines when the puppy chewed them - twice.

Anticipate keeping it till 300,000 and beyond. Leather seats now really tatty so will get them re-covered when cash allows.

Just change the oil every 10-15K and fill it with diesel when it stops moving.

The power train Toyota has done a lot of work on BUT try & stop one from 140 KMH 

in a hurry. Sad, but they fail badly

Pickups are not designed to be driven at 140 km/hr, that's why one sees quite a few of them on their sides or roof on Thai roadsides. In fact, at that speed in wet conditions it's a given. Handling like a buffalo on roller skates.

If it's transmission is an auto tranny then that would be the most expensive repair, but if it is manual then not expensive. But who owned it and what the truck used for. If it was used for business and heavy works, just forget it. You buy a trouble only. But if it was used as a family car and travels then it should be ok. And front end accident is very important if it had any.

A lot depends on ownership, how it's been driven/loaded and servicing.

Driven with care and frequent oil changes they will go to 300,000+ and more if driven with care.

If they've been heavily loaded/used, driven without care, never serviced then half that it will sound like a bag of spanners.
