A random mechanic anywhere is not going to be able to help you with a 25 year old imported diesel. You need to be looking at Tacomas, 4Runners, or maybe even a 1st gen Tundra. Parts everywhere, mechanics everywhere. Excellent vehicles, cheap to own and operate, checks all your boxes. Tacos and Runners come with manual trannies too.Also, isn’t everyone worried about the cost of owning any car when shopping? I just don’t want to spend thousands every year and have it laid up in the shop for weeks on end wait for parts. I do long road trips for a couple of months and need it to work consistently, it’s not going to be used for weekend warrioring. A random mechanic in Durango, Salt Lake or Cheyenne needs to be able to help me. I guess something in the 20,000 is reasonable for these imports, but I just need help getting a third opinion on the mechanicals i think.
