2008 Toyota Tacoma 4dr Access Cab 4WD 6.1 ft. SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)
The 4 cyl does all I need it to do and more. It's been up and down the mountains, through tough places, hauls loads, pulls moderate trailers and just keeps going without problems. The first truck I've owned that gets better MPG than the window sticker. Rarely less than 20 and rarely more than 23 MPG.
Exterior looks, number one. Reliability and the simplicity of the mechanics.
Better quality dash. Seating is a bit low but I shimmed it up. Other than that I like everything. Folks who expect the latest in auto luxury's won't find them in a Tacoma. It's a truck!
