2008 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Regular Cab 4WD 6.1 ft. SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)
I wanted a truck that would tow my trailer, get me into the back country, get good mileage, be reliable and dependable: what else but another Toyota! This is my 4th, and I've never had a complaint or serious problem. Toyota is offering incentives now and that swung the deal for me. But I would have purchased one without that.
I like the functional simplicity of this truck. It's the base 4 X 4, but it has AC, CD, adjustable steering wheel, etc. I don't need extra space or all the "bells and whistles," just a truck that will do what I want it to do for a long time. I have it!
Cruise control standard on the base truck would be nice but certainly not crucial.
