My Tacoma is a regular cab short wheelbase 2WD with 2.4 L and automatic. It is fun to drive and very manuverable. It can haul the load when asked and gets fairly respectable gas mileage (20-24 mpg). I made several cross country trips with a loaded bed and it has performed just great.

This truck has done everything I've
asked of it- from towing over 4000 lbs
to hauling engines to commuting to the
hospital and back. An awesome truck
all around, my next truck will be
another Toyota (in about 15 years- at
this rate this thing will last
forever). It handled poorly on the
stock tires in rain, but since I
swapped them recently, it has improved

I purchased this vehicle to do general
type hauling on the weekends for
gardening & home improvement work.
This vehicle is well suited for these
tasks. I appreciate the fine lines on
the body of this truck, especially the
front end. I test drove several other
compact trucks and felt the tacoma
gave the best ride. The truck handles
well with adequate power for a 4
cylinder. I do experience the whistle
in my A/C that some other reviewers
have complained about but no other
complaints. This is the 3rd Toyota
vehicle I have owned and I hope my
Tacoma provides the same reliability
and problem free performance as my
previous two vehicles.
