This vehicle is pretty well built, but
I am about to take it back for the
second power steering pump. I
experienced the same clutch squeak that
the other guy did, and rattles are
starting to develop. The biggest
annoyance is the road noise that
eminates into the cab through the bare
back wall of the cab. How much more
could it have cost to "finish" the back
wall of the cab? Toyota charges a
premium price for what is supposed to
be a premium product I expected that
and was dissapointed. I would still
buy another Toyota however.
This is a solid little truck and it
feels solid. I appreciate the headlamp
kill feature, although I don't
understand why they didn't just make
DRL standard. The radio sounds good,
and the rack and pinion steering is
excellent. I expected better fuel
mileage, but this is a 4wd.
"FINISH THE BACK WALL OF THE CAB" The
amount of road noise and heat that
comes in (I live in South Texas) is
extreme and it becomes very
irritating. I spend five hours a day
in this truck.
