I have owned 3 Tacoma's. satisfied with all 3, although very pricey and sparse inside. After much research and comparison, I am pleased with decision to buy 2009 Pro 4X, crew cab. Biggest factor, interior and price much better with Nissan. Finally, a comfortable truck with features never found in a truck. Heated leather, 6 disc/MP3, power seats and so on. The best compromise I could find between SUV and truck.
Power/heated Leather seats, stereo system, factory sprayed bed liner w/ cargo hooks/tracks, wheels and tires. Off road capability, while excelling in creature comforts.
Gas mileage will hurt if prices go back up. Steering a little heavy for city driving.
