Pros

Comfortable, quiet, well built, powerful, efficient for a truck, and spacious. Lots of aftermarket add-ons available.

Cons

Better MPG would always be good. Maybe a few more technology features too.

Toyota Value, Second To None! — We bought this Tacoma because we found a great deal and it is about as fuel efficient as you can get for a truck. The ride is excellent and the off-road capability is certainly there although we felt it was too nice to really take "off road". Toyota quality and reliability shines in the Tacoma and this truck was no different. Build quality is excellent, the seats are okay, but not the best I've ever sat in. Performance was as expected, plenty of power, great handling, and it always felt safe to ride in. A bigger bed would have been nice but we never had a situation where this wasn't big enough. Getting kids and car seats in the back seat was a breeze! All in all, nothing is perfect but this Tacoma is about as good as it gets for a well rounded small(ish) pickup truck!

09 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab — I like this car because it is practical, reliable and good looking. It will likely run forever, and does not cost much to maintain. It also has a tow package which is nice. The only real problem that I have with it, is that with the baby in the back seat in her car seat, it is hard to fit anyone infront of her.

Great Everyday Driver — Space - Small space on the rear seats. Performance - a 246 HP is nice but with the TRD exhaust system way better. Gas - its like drinking water. Build Quality - First month with it the radio stopped working. FAIL. Rough riding you can feel everything.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Many standard features that aren't standard elsewhere.  Backup camera and power outlet in the bed are nice touches.

Cons

Small gas tank for the MPG it gets. Power from seats would be nice.

It'll Be My Favorite Toy For Many Years To Come. — I'd say it drives like a car, but you don't feel the potholes nearly as much. Great acceleration, braking and handling. Even smooth at high speeds. Tons of muscle power, and practically flawless sturdy build. I get compliments on it all the time, and the interior puts most "luxury" cars I've been in to shame. Is it fun to drive? Oh yeah. I enjoy my commute to work now!

Great Practical Car! — Very user friendly. Love the versatility and maneuverability. Lockable cover over bed! From shopping to holding personal items, always felt safe with this convenience. Cover is sturdy enough to stand on! Setup with a Trailer hitch and all electrical connections in place.

Worth Every Penny! — Smooth V6, consistent brakes, tight suspension (TRD Sport) rough on bumpy roads. Flawless build quality and solid. The best looking mid-size out there with aggressive (although non-functional) hood scoop. Decent gas mileage with highest in class tow capacity (6500lbs). Highly capable bullet-proof 4WD, plus the option of a dealer installed fully warranteed (5yr 120k) supercharger makes this by far the best mid-size. Not to mention the highest resale value of all pick-ups, not that you'd ever want to give it up.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Great Freakin Truck. — It a great running truck, rides nice, good performance, sharp looks, good gas mileage (could be better). Got the six speed manual transmission. Lots of clearance for different tire sizes at the stock ride hieght. There a Web sites that specialize in gear for just toyotas, making it easy to fing aftermarket parts.
