I will admit its not something to buy if you are going to be towing heavy payloads, however if you are needing a truck to move large objects and still want to drive it to work everyday I would highly recommend the Toyota Tacoma. It is very friendly to work on and drive. The design is so well thought out that I have never had a problem with someone being in my blind spot without me knowing. Its a big plus for me because it gets good gas mileage and it can handle what ever I give it.
It handles like a car (sedan), you don't have to over compensate for its bed.
The only couple things I don't like is that the mirror frames move, and since I park in a parking garage people will accidently hit my mirrors causing them to be off. And you can not adjust the seats to move apart.
