I live in SE Kansas.
I have a 2002 GMC Sonoma with 4.3 Vortch Engine. It had 42,000 miles on it when I bought in 2005. It now has 122,000 miles on it. It is an extended cab. I installed BedRug and Truceedo cover when I purchased it. In the past five years, I have replaced the intake manifold gasket, the passenger side ABS sensor on the front wheel. Just last fall I replaced the radiator. The rest has been general maintenance. Oh, I should have checked my book I keep in the glovebox. I also replaced brake shoes and pads. I keep the book for myself. I record each fillup and all work is done on it with date, miles, etc. On a Cavalier I sold several years ago I collected more than I asked for it. Two of the guys looking at it saw the book and remembered that their grandfathers used to do that and their vehicles were kept in great shape. They started raising the price. Now, I have another reason to keep those records.
My wife has a 2005 Toyota X-Runner. We picked it up with 10,600 miles and it now has 62,000 miles. The only thing I had to do is replace the plastic bushings in the shifter.
I am looking at selling my Sonoma to purchase a 4Runner SR5 Premium 4WD. Used, of course. Do you have any advice on what I need to look out for and any other suggestions? I tried out a 2017 at a dealer last week. I liked the way it drives, expensive. It has all the options I want. I was unable to get them down to a reasonable price.
