HMC Exclusive: 2008 Toyota Tacoma with 732,000 Miles

Hi everyone. It’s been a while since I’ve given you some high-mile news. Times have been slow in the high-mile world, but worry not.  Today I’m going to talk about Mike Neal and his 2008 Toyota Tacoma. He bought his truck in 2007 with 212 miles on it.  He is a courier, which explains the crazy high miles.

Mike points out that he shouldn’t be seen a role model for maintenance.  He says the engine and transmission are both original and that he changed the plugs for the first time at 704,491 miles. Yikes!   He also changed the transmission fluid for the first time at 486, 000 miles, and has never changed coolant. He only tops it up.  Mike uses Castrol 5/20 for his oil changes. Despite all this, he has driven ALL THE MILES in his Tacoma and it has never let him down.  A wonderful story of a truck coming through for their driver. Thanks for sharing with us Mike. Keep us updated on the Tacoma and send us some photos when you get a chance. Your truck has earned a place in our top fifty high-milers. Well done.
