X Runner is the best. Everyone loves this truck.

It is so cool. Has a lot of great features and the style is like none other. The Toyota X Runner truck is in a class all by itself. I helped my son buy this truck after searching over two years for one.


  • Ride and Handling: The ride is smooth and the handling is like nothing I have ever driven
  • Power: When I need the power, it is there
  • Fuel Economy: Good on gas for the size of truck

Great experience purchase of Tacoma from Carmax

Tacoma’s are rock solid vehicles and one of the best off roaders. They should easily go over 300,000 miles. This one I bought is a real gem!

  • Cabin Noise:
