Good truck, some bugs

2007 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner V6 4dr Double Cab 6.1 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
There's a lot to like with the latest Tacoma truck. Nice interior and the V6 is smooth and powerful. Its size is just right. Issues? The auto trans doesn't seem to shift right. Rear springs are weak (I had to replace and I don't haul anything heavy) or put up with it bottoming out. Front end gets out of alignment easily. Does the PreRunner really need to be be so high off the ground? I'd like better MPG, but at least I can get 20 or better.
Nice interior layout. V6 engine pulls and revs well.
Auto transmission (programming?). Weak rear springs, stronger chassis. Input jack on radio. Lower height on PreRunner. I'd have preferred a manual trans. expecially after seeing how poorly the auto trans shifts.
