2006 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Regular Cab SB (2.7L 4cyl 4A)
I'm extremely happy with my purchase two years later. Vehicle performs flawlessly in the snow and ice of the Massachusetts Berkshires. Insist on traction control options if you live in a similar locale, they have done the job consistently for me. Meanwhile, I get the mileage advantages of a 2WD power train. Seats are a little thin but not uncomfortable.
Traction control, limited slip differential and ABS. Excellent highway mileage and large gas tank. Center seat belt for my dog, Sam Adams.
The dash, while very readable with easy to use and reach controls looks a bit cheap. Hooks that hold the floor mats in place pull out too easily.
