2006 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Regular Cab SB (2.7L 4cyl 4A)
Just replaced my first truck (a 92' Toyota compact truck) w/ a 06' Tacoma. I would not even consider another brand due to my experience w/ my 92'. I honestly did not have a lot of money to spend, so I went w/ a manual transmission/regular cab. All I can say is omg wow what a lot of truck for not a lot of cash. The interior is solid as a rock, and very well put together. I have found myself frequently checking my payment book and marveling at how fantastic this vehicle is for such a low payment.
Top notch Toyota quality. They don't ignore a detail on even there budget models.
CD player could be a lil easier to switch out... but hell I'm nitpickin :)
