I picked up my Tacoma yesterday morning. I bought it with 42k miles/1-owner for $21k. It is a blast to drive! This thing climbs hills. In 6th gear @ 50 mph. There is enough power throughout the power band. Shifting is smooth once you get use to the clutch which feels as light as a car's clutch. If you are looking to fill a semi-sports car void without loosing the utility of a truck and have room for the family, test drive a Tacoma. The reliability of a Toyota is undeniable. I plan on taking this truck to 220k.
The exterior styling and the 6-speed manual transmission. I know any DCT will shift faster than I ever will. But with a manual transmission, you feel connected to the vehicle, IMHO.
Only one, a small one. The sounds systems is not the best. If you like the clarity of hearing the 'chick' from the hi-hat in your sound system, this stereo will disappoint you.
