I should mention the 22R-E engine, not because I think it's the best thing ever (although its durability is the stuff of legend), but because this underhood shot is exactly what you'd see in the same position of a 3rd, 4th, or 5th generation Hilux pickup. Not exactly the stuff sporting dreams are made of, but the 2.4L 4-cylinder is stout and easy to maintain & repair. This one's at 152k miles which means a few minor oil leaks and a broken plastic timing chain guide are just about the only problems I'd expect.
