I purchased the truck new in 2000. After 110,000 miles, I have not had any mechanical problems. The quality of finish is impeccable. I need a bigger truck, but am unwilling to depart from such a reliable and capable steed. You cannot go wrong with this Tacoma. If only all vehicles were made this well.
V6, 5-Speed, Manual, 4WD, locking rear differential. Spartan options, but awesome reliability. I'd rather have all the simplicty of my Tacoma, then all the bells and whistle of other makes that break all the team. There is nothing to break on the Tacoma!
I wish I had suicide doors for the extended cab. Back seat comfort. Better seat support. Fuel economy.
