I shopped around for a few months. I looked at the Chevy Colorado, GMC Canyon, Ford F15 and Nissan Frontier. What pulled me to the Tacoma was the number of older Tacomas still looking great. I talked to a few Tacoma owners and asked them how they liked their truck and they all responded that they loved their truck. I am very happy that I went with the Tacoma. The truck feels solid and drives extremely well. The gas mileage could be a little better but I'll take 18 MPG versus some of the other trucks. If you want a truck thats built Tacoma's the one.
6 cyl 268 HP engine. TRD Sport package with 4WD can't be beat. Interior is real nice and the access cab has room for 2 more for short trips. 6 ft bed has plenty of room for cargo.
Gas mileage could be a better. Larger access cab windows would improve blind spots.
