Love My Tacoma — This has been a great truck for my husband. He drives to Dallas every day and it sits high and gets great gas mileage for him. He purchased it with 45K miles and it now has 150K+ and we still have many years that we can get out of it. It is a great vehicle.

Plenty of room, plenty of power and very reliable.

Fuel economy isn't quite as good as estimated MPG but then again... I can't drive 55.

Best Mid-sized Truck Out There. — Great looking truck. Very comfortable ride. Toyota reliability. 245 stock HP. With a good set of tires... there's no snowstorm that can stop this truck. Turning radius has a lot to be desired, but all in all the Toyota Tacoma is one of the best vehicles you can buy.

Great Truck. Great to have a Half ton capability in a 1/4 ton truck.

Cons

Toyota needs to get the Gas milage up to 30mpg before someone else does.

Tacoma — Great truck. Love the way it drives, off-roads. Handles loads really well. I really wish that Toyota would fix the squeaky blower fan on low and the leaf springs. Also I want them to put out a disel version in the US!!

Have Had No Real Problems In 4 Years And 65000 Km — Good truck overall, but a full-size gets similar gas mileage with more size and capacity. Good head room in the front. Not much leg room in the back seats but they are deep so they are still pretty comfortable. Four wheel drive system works very well with the front having a locking diff. It is a bit light in the rear end though so it rides a bit choppy when empty.

This truck gets the job done.

Gas mileage, or if you need a full-sized V-8.

Love It! — Long bed holds a couch (which is bad when friends find out), towing package is enough for small loads (including a small ski boat), and room for 5. Better than a car, and goes places a larger truck can't. Very fun truck to drive.

Best Compact Truck On The Market. — I bought my 2009 Toyota Tacoma X-Runner about two weeks ago and I love it! The ride is smooth, and the looks are great, a real head turner. The 6 speed transmission is smooth and very forgiving, I haven't driven a straight stick in awhile and was a little rough at shifting, no problem with the 6 speed. The acceleration is quick and the handling beats most sport cars I have diven in the past. I wanted a truck for hauling stuff when I need to and enjoy driving around town. This truck does both. The interior is refined but still get the feel of a truck. I think it is the best street truck on the market. You get the best of both worlds, trucking and touring. The gas mileage is not that good but mirrors other compact trucks. No regrets here!

Pros

Great power, handling, breaking. Very eye catching truck, fairlly roomy for a midsize, roomy engine bay, easy oil filter access, onboard electrical outlet is awesome-one of a kind, hidden compartments under and behind the seats are perfect, very very smooth ride for a truck-floats over bumps

Cons

Better gas mileage? Sit a little bit taller? Leaf springs squeak if get muddy or overly wet!

2008 Tacoma My #1 Pick — I absolutely love this truck. Recommend it to everyone! Wouldnt trade it for anything. Unbelievably fast for a small V6 truck and impressive pulling power. Best body style Tacoma yet. Much more room inside than ever before.13 cup holders!! Oh...Dare ya to race me!

Its Great For My Needs And Wants — Milage is about 20 highway, 15 city, and 10-12 with a 5x10 trailer. Not too shabby considering my last ride only got 14 mpg. Acceleration isn't so great, but what can you expect from a truck? Love the color, love the 4x4. I've owned it for a year and haven't had a problem with it yet.
