This 2008 Toyota Tacoma has over 2.4 million kilometers

With 2.4 million kilometers on the clock, this Toyota Tacoma in perfect condition has driven the equivalent of 6.4 times around the earth.

Toyota has a reputation for building rugged vehicles that can travel large numbers of miles. But Mike Neal, the proud owner of this Toyota Tacoma bought new in November 2007 (therefore vintage 2008) panicked the counters in traveling over 2.4 million kilometers with his pick up!

A pick-up already known!

Resident in the United States, Mike Neal was interviewed on video by the youtuber Jeff Teague. But it wasn’t the first interview he gave since the same Jeff Teag had already met him two years before while his Tacoma already had 1.9 million kilometers.

Reliable mechanics

Mike bought his Tacoma for approximately $ 22,000 (around € 18,500), it is equipped with a 2.7 four-cylinder engine developing 159 hp and 244 Nm of torque associated with a 6-speed automatic transmission. He had no idea that in just 13 years, he traveled the equivalent of 6.4 times the lap dirt behind the wheel of his Toyota. However, the engine has already been changed (at 1.4 million kilometers anyway). He then needed a new cylinder head gasket. The transmission also required replacement at more than 2 million kilometers. But this is not even due to a breakage!

2.4 million kilometers and a body spared

After all these kilometers, the Toyota Tacoma is in pretty good condition. Only a few scratches and bumps are present but the whole presents well. The interior is of the same ilk with armchairs that are not sagging while no plastic seems so marked by time.
