I've had my Tacoma for over a year.
Very reliable, low maintenance truck.
Plenty of torque and nice off-road
features - especially the
electronically locking rear dif. (TRD
Package) Several warranty items covered
without question from the dealer.
Great exterior lines from the side.
High ride stance. Good exhaust tone.
The front end design is lousy. The
Tacoma has what is the ugliest front
grille on the market. Leather steering
wheel. Seats are a bit flimsy. Bed
needs to be 3" longer so that a bike
will fit with the tailgate up. Gas
mileage stinks Clock placement -
obstructed by steering wheel.
I have a lot of fun going off road. It
performs really good. On the road the
ride is good but not the best it bounce
a little too much. You can't fit an
adult in the back (I have an extended
cab). The passenger air bag is rattling
like a snake and the clock is in the
worst position that they could placed
it, you can't see it because the
steering wheel cover it. I think that
the gas pedal and the brake pedal are
too close, I sometimes when breaking
accelerate at the same time when I am
wearing my work boots. The power is
there I have no complaints when I haul
the trailer or when I have the bed full
Power, off road capabilities and the
Truck looks great and runs even
better...solid, tough, no-nonsense...i
recommend a no frills, bells or
whistles model, with a manual
transmission and four-wheel drive...i
use mine to drive up mountains and
across deserts...have fun
