    Curious to see how many of you have held on to the same vehicle for a few decades. I see 3rd gens daily, on the road in these parts, and the occasional 2nd gen.

    In an era when most folks change their vehicle every 6-7 years, wanted to see who has held on the longest.

    About 19 years of ownership here. Got my 96 cheap as hell, fiber optic splice/testing truck. It had 174,000 miles then when I got a loan to buy it. Rumors of a new transmission. And new top end when the dealer messed up a timing belt replacement. No paperwork to back it up though...

    Well I haven't since this is the first 4Runner I have ever owned. Kind of a flawed poll in that respect.

    My dad owned his '95 for almost 20 years before it was totaled in an accident. He'd still be driving it otherwise. For me, the longest I've owned a vehicle is 3 years.

    o_O....:D I guess I am misunderstanding the point of the poll but then realized it's in the Gen forum. My bad. :cheers:

    New 5th gens don't apply.

    I'm 16 years with my 03 Tacoma if that counts, my 2012 4R will need to make another 10 years at least, I plan on giving it my son when he turns 16

    I bought my 99 4Runner from a man who purchased it brand new. He owned the vehicle for 20 years, although he only put 124,000km (Not even 80,000 miles) !!!

    I'm at 288k in the 03 Tacoma, 157k in the 4Runner. That 99 is almost up for its first timing belt change.

    Wife has an 05 4Runner bought it new and now with 295,000 miles, it's still going strong. I had to replace the radiator on it a couple years back, and that's it. It's been a hell of a vehicle. We bought the 19 4Runner back in February, but the 05 is her daily driver. Also have a 96 Tacoma with 408,000 miles.
