Pros

Very versatile, good weather or bad, on road or off, grocery shopping or hauling for construction, maneuverable, and RELIABLE. I've never had a major issue with any Toyota Tacoma I've owned

Cons

Personally it is perfect for me, but if you haul less in the bed and are the more sociable type you may find the back seat a little small. However, they are a vast improvement over earlier generation jump seat

Reliable, Versatile, And Well Balanced — I have driven my Toyota Tacomas in everything from sunny road trips to trudging through rough Midwest blizzards. I have pulled out numerous people after each snow storm we have had with ease, never once feeling as if I was going to get stuck. This is a larger "midsize" perfect for those who don't quite need a full size pickup but still dont want a compact. Reliability and toughness is par none, and it truly lacks nothing in my honest opinion.

Pros

This is a great little truck. We love it but our family has just outgrown it. Maintenance for the truck is not expensive at all. The back seats are comfortable. It is a very reliable truck and great family car if you only have 1 or 2 little ones that will be riding in the back. Filling up with gas will not break the bank on regular if it is completely empty it costs around $50 @ around $3.29 a gallon.

Cons

The only con I have for this is it is not a great family truck if you have a large family. It is good for 1 or 2 back passengers.

Big Red. It May Be A Little Truck But It Is Tough. — I love that we can fill up the truck and go for drives and not have to worry about going into debt filling it up. It is comfortable and has perfect handling to go on any kind of road. We use it to pull our 4-wheeler and have no problems.

Pros

Addresses all my needs right now. Finally empty nesting and no longer need a full sized truck. Handles like a sports car compared to my 3/4 ton.

Cons

Good but not great power when towing or passing on the highway.

Impressions On Downsizing Trucks. — I love the maneuverability and outstanding traction in snow. This truck does better than my 4WD GMC 2500 in deep snow. I used my Tacoma to get my GMC out from being hung up last winter. My wife even enjoys driving it!

Best Mid-size Pick-up Out There And Holds It's Value Too — Not much that I dislike especially that they gave me $12,000 on my 1999 extra cab with 156 thousand miles on it cause it was recalled due to frame rust so this truck listed at 35 thousand with all the extras and paid 20 thousand for it

Small truck.

Style And Value — I like the color of the truck. It is sort of a metallic brown. I wish I would have got the sunroof option. Maybe next time. The truck is a little small, but it is convenient for getting around in parking lots and easy to park.

My 2012 Taco Db V6 Prerunner — I place 1000 lbs in the bed & drove 1800 miles (NY to TX) and the ride was so comfy. there was a little bit of road noise. But getting on to the highways were simple!!!! the fuel economy was the same empty and full. My only complaint in the brakes felt a bit spongy when the bed was empty and when the truck was full it seemed to get more sloppy.

Toyota Value, Second To None! By viper8miller
