I get amazing gas mileage for a truck. I adore this truck. It's cute and incredibly reliable. The only problems I have ever had have been normal car maintenance problems (battery, tires, brakes, etc.) I also threw it out of alignment jumping train tracks at 16. Other than that, I'm pretty sure it's powered by a 40 watt lightbulb. Absolutely zero get up and go. ZERO. Clocked it at 0 - 60 in 27 seconds. I am NOT exaggerating. The cab is very cramped. I did not know my husband when I chose the truck and didn't realize I would one day marry a 6' 4" 300 pound guy. It's awful and painful to sleep in this truck. Storage space is zero. Overall, this is a wonderful truck. Particularly as a 2nd car.
The gas mileage is great. It drives fairly smoothly. Maintenance is practically zero. I've had no real problems that weren't self inflicted. The prerunner handles very well. Very high up.
The cab is SO small. I love this truck, but a little more leg room would be great. The extended cab was too expensive. Long distances are not a lot of fun. The tire changing equipment that came with the truck looks like thrift store junk. The jack is way too short. Not good when stranded.
Truck is awesome. I had a sonoma
before this, and believe me, the
reliability on toyotas and performance
is much better. Took truck on a 3k
miles road trip and ran perfect the
whole way. Bucket seats provide much
comfort. Overall great truck
secret compartments in arm rest are
cool, put some nerf bars on too, but
simply how high you sit up is great.
Also the independent suspension gives
you offroad-like capabilities.
agree with the other guy, clock needs
to be moved. Can't see the digital
clock because of the steering wheel.
I have had my Tacoma for over a year.
It has been extremely reliable, and it
draws looks from many other drivers.
When quality is brought up, all you
have to do is close the door on me
Tacoma and compare it to closing the
door on anything else. You can truly
feel the quality through a process as
simple as that. I have over 20k on the
odometer and it still drives as well as
it did on day one. There are no squeaks
or rattles, as everything is very tight.

I gave up a Chevrolet to drive this. I
only regret not doing it sooner. This
is the best vehicle I have ever owned.
Its a 4 cylinder that has similar
performance to a V-6 Mustang. Don't
believe me, go race one! The ride is
very solid and it has no squeaks or
rattles. I paid a higher price for it,
that other trucks of the same size, but
option for option it really cost about
the same. Toyota only builds what it
needs, so therefore you will not find
a "stripped down" Toyota on the lot
unless they were special ordered for
fleet purposes. The bottom line....
