I bought this truck to commute to school (1/2 hour) and twice monthly to northern VT from RI. I take it on the beach with no hesitation and can't wait to drive it in the snow. Surfing the secluded spots won't be a problem anymore. My truck has 201,000 miles on it and it feels like a newborn. I highly recommend buying a used tacoma. I've spent many nights in the back of it camping out on the beach. Its just a romantic truck.
Love the manual trans and the easy 4x4 stick. smooth riding on the highway and fuel economy (21 mpg).
The steering wheel blocks the digital clock on the dash. If thats it then thats pretty good!
