SO I WAS FRESH BACK FROM THE COUNTRY OF AFGHANISTAN, SERVING MY COUNTRY. I CAME BACK TO THE UNITED STATES WITH MY DEPLOYMENT MONEY, AND I WAS TIRED OF GETTING RIDES FROM MY BUDDIES, SO I DECIDED IT WAS TIME TO BUY A VEHICLE. I KNEW EVER SINCE I WAS A KID THAT I WANTED A TRUCK, NOT JUST ANY TRUCK, BUT A TOYOTA TACOMA. I KNEW THEY WERE BUILT TOUGH, HAD AN AMAZING AND LONG LASTING ENGINE, AND THAT IT COULD GET THE JOB DONE. I WENT BACK HOME AND THATS THE FIRST THING I BOUGHT! I DROVE OFF THE LOT A FEW HOURS LATER WITH MY GLEAMING GUN-METAL GREY TOYOTA TACOMA. I HAVE NEVER BEEN MORE SATISFIED WITH A VEHICLE. I GOT THE SINGLE CAB, WHICH PROVIDES ENOUGH FOR 3 PEOPLE, BUT TWO PEOPLE VERY COMFORTABLY. ITS GOT SOME GREAT ACCELLERATION, WITHOUT THE WORRY OF GAS PROBLEMS FROM IT ONLY BEING A FOUR-BANGER ( IN LINE 4 CYLINDER ENGINE, INSTEAD OF A V6, V8, OR V12). I KNEW I WOULD HAVE THIS TRUCK FOR A LONG TIME. THE NEXT WEEK I DROVE ACCROSS COUNTRY FROM NEW MEXICO TO CALIFORNIA, WITH GREAT TUNES FROM THE NICE STOCK STEREO, AND THE VERY SMOOTH RIDE OF MY TRUCK. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT FOR ANY TRUCK LOVER. IT WILL LAST YOU A VERY VERY LONG TIME, AND TOYOTA NEVER COMPROMISES ANYTHING. I LOVE MY NEW TRUCK.

The truck performs well. I went from 4 cylinder Honda Civic to the 6 cylinder Tacoma. Gas consumption nearly doubled. But, it has a great ride and I love driving it.
Plenty of power, 4 door for family and kids, 4X4 for winter snow, built in inverter (400 watts) for tailgating or emergency 120V, are some of the cool features. I haven't towed with it yet, so I can't saw how well the transmission and engine do under a heavy load.
But no complaints as of yet.

The MPG is excellent and the cabin is much quieter than other cars and trucks I have owned.
I also like the bed rail system for securing a load.
All and all a great truck so far.
