Looked at 2005 Dakota, Tacoma, Colorado before deciding on 2005 Frontier SE crew cab 4 wheel drive with automatic trans. This truck is solid as a rock (sorry chevy) and built like a brick --- -house. Can't imagine anything in it's class any better.
Power, awesome power and throaty sound from 265 horses. Drives like a dream.
Gas mileage only 14 mpg around town, should improve with more miles.
