I have had some great cars, but, never one that was so perfect on all fronts. The turbo is great for city driving and fun on the highway. The car from 0-60 in 6 seconds/ and has great brakes. Btw-that speed is my old 1995 BMW M3 speed. The cost/ safety factor/ reliability is great. It had not let me down ever. And costs little to maintain. It has a really good sound system/ great visibility/ great on gas/ great on interior storage. I am never afraid of getting stuck in the snow.
Settling down doesn't mean slowing down. I had an '02 Tacoma Limited and traded up for this new toy and have no regrets. Great performance and power when you need it while it's tame looks might suggest otherwise.
The panoramic sun room is breath taking, despite the wind noise which can be hushed from adding the deflector. Suspension is very nimble and acceleration is awesome... just like driving a sport luxury sedan.
The lackluster interior could use a little spicing up but it has some nice sporty features once you get used to it.
