I have owned over 23 cars now and this is my very first truck. I have needed a truck over the years but never broke down and bought one. However I always had my eyes on the Tacoma. The Tacoma is the one truck that was not tooo big to fit in my Garage, has the feel of a car when you sit in it, and gets gas mileage that will not break the bank like larger full size trucks. I have the double cab and it is extremely roomy for five and the 4.0 V6 is simply outstanding! Off the line this truck will march 0-60 faster than a bunch of cars out there and it does it with smooth accelleration. If you are in to mods, the sky is the limit with this truck. I am keeping her pretty stock, however she will be receiving navigation to compliment the Leather interior. You simply cannot go wrong with this pickup.
If there was a 'maybe' response, I'd choose it. The ride is tolerable. The TRD Off-Road package (with 4WD) is very capable off-road. Handling is not bad for a truck with an off-road oriented suspension and off-road tires. It is a maneuverable package and fits fairly well in tight spots. Fuel economy- I'm unable to hit the combined EPA rating. My highway mileage averages about 18-19 MPG driving slow. I don't tow. I usually have about 50 lbs worth of gear in the bed. Power is not bad. However, it feels like it is all in the higher rev range. In the 25k miles I've had it, one of the rear brakes leaked. The transfer case leaked. The power steering rack had to be replaced. One of the rear back-up sensors failed and had to be replaced.
Great truck,equipment, surprisingly good mileage for a 4Ltr. I had a Ford Ranger before, but the Tacoma is a real truck, the Ranger, just a training truck.
