Pros

I've maintained and abused this truck since I bought it.  Takes a beating well.

Cons

Very little storage in passenger compartment.  For example, no room for 2 people and a DLS camera.

Easy To Maintain, Not Too Many Problems. — First of all, bought brand new. The front end seemed and still seems loose as a crosswind can and does easily push the truck sideways. The radiator needed replacement too early...even after yearly maintenance using distilled water. Other than that it is very basic transportation. Manual transmission gets me off the line pretty quick...compared with some of today's small cars. I tried an automatic (early 00's) it felt like a go cart. Definitely needed to upgrade the stock 14" rims to 15" as there were no quality tires available in 14".

Fun Truck! — Wish it had another set of doors and larger second row seats. It needs weight in the back when it snows or if its slippery outside so its encouraged to have sand bags in the back to help with weight.

Pros

Reliable - fun to drive.

Cons

Only reason I can give to avoid this truck is that is does bounce you around a little.

Great Little Truck. Can't Beat Any Tacoma In And Model Year. — Bought this truck to use for work - Again Toyota amkes some of the best trucks both small and full size. Put 203,000+ miles on this truck and never had a problem. The smaller truck does bounce you around a little one rough roads but a good reliable vehicle. The only reason for sell it was needed a bigger vehicle for the family. This truck got about 21 mpg on mixed driving - best was 26 mpg on a highway trip. The truck was a TRD Extended cab with a 2.7L with a 5 speed.

1999 Toyota Tacoma V6 Rwd Sr5 — Performance was pretty good, it had the V6 with RWD in it so it was putting out a bit under 200 HP. So when you stepped on it it really picked up you could lock up the breaks and do a bit of drifting as well. Build Quality was superb I mean its a Toyota my only con for build quality is that the interior was cheap. Appearance, it looked great I put some new rims on it and Yokohama racing tires but it was not a "beautiful truck".

Versitile, compact, good mpg, good handeling, very dependable

Cons

small towing ability, engine wise, not as high clearance as a 4x4, back seat area not that comfortable to sit forward facing for long periods of time

My Toy — I love this truck because it's versatile, able to haul most things that the average person needs to haul, the gas mileage is that of the average car, about 26-30mpg and because I have the extended cab I can haul more than two people if the need arises. It has been very low maintenance, just the usual upkeep and one break job so far and I have almost 130000 miles on it so far. It has good get up and go though the engine is a little small when it comes to pulling over high mountains. It maxes out at about 55-60mph if the grade is really steep. Other than that though I don't have any complaints about it's abilities. I have driven it hard out in the woods on logging roads and it preforms beautifully, never really complaining as we snake over water bars and bumpy roads! I also like that I can turn off the passenger airbag so if I have older children or shorter people in the car I can feel safe having them ride in the front seat.

Cons

have to fix the gate

My Tacoma — 4-cyl, manual, 4x4, extended cab, extended bed, quality off-road tires. what's not to love about the Tacoma. best car I've had. much better than the old Previa, but she was nostalgic. the only thing that sucks is that thegates been all messed up so I have to get some paper to fix this bad boy up before I can actually customize.

Pros

0-60 in about 6 seconds, hauling capabilities, Toyota name brand and reliability.

Cons

Gas mileage on premium gas, not a very large rear space for "extended cab".

Supercharged V6 With All The Power You Need To Have Some Fun — Due to the supercharger, this quickly became a "sport-truck". Although it was a sport-truck, it still was able to haul quite a bit. The added clearance due to the PreRunner trim allowed for more weight to be hauled, and the engine would easily push the much heavier truck into motion.

An Excellent Combination Of Style, Beauty, And Power. — the truck has a fully reinforced frame, with independent susspention, and a half brush guard. the handling and power of this ride is absolutly unbelievable. for a jacked up toyota, it's as smooth a ride as any.
