It's My Baby! — I really have nothing negative to say about my truck, I love it! I bought it brand new back in '96, and I wouldn't trade a thing or take any amount for my truck. It's been shipped oversea's with me, and brought back home to Kentucky. Though I have had many vehicle's since owning this truck, I have always preferred it over anything else i've owned.

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

Pros: Great Gas Mileage, Wonderful Power For A Four Cylinder, 5 Speed Manual, Long Bed, Great Towing

Cons: Though I Would Never Get Rid Of This Truck, I wish it were a V6. I don't really have any issue's with traction during the winter, but I wish it were 4WD.

Good Reliable Truck For The Money — This was a very reliable little pickup truck. I had to put a clutch in it, an alternator, and a few other small things. But....these were its only problems in a matter of 250,000 miles. I put only one star for appearance because after I smashed it off a guardrail, it didn't look too hot. It wasn't the fastest thing, but she was fun in the snow.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliable gas saver

Cons: Boring, terrible in the winter

Tacoma — The truck is great. It handles well and has more power than you might think. The truck is in great shape for a 96 and the interior is as clean as the exterior. Great gas mileage and low maintenance costs.

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

Pros: everything

Cons: none

Great Rig — I would tell anyone that wants a pickup to go anywhere buy one of these pickups four wheel drive of course. They last a long time and are really reliable. They get really good gas mileage to. Go out and get yourself one of these pickups.

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

Pros: Gets we where i need to go any where i need to go!

Cons: there is none

Best Truck Ever — I bought this truck with 92000 now has 211000 spent about 200 in parts to maintain running operation of the truck. Replaced rotors twice a starter part and a thermostat. Still runs strong but I am getting nevous. I told the father in law who I bought it from "hope it makes it 100,000 for me". Its made it and then some. Cant afford a new one but love the body all the way up to 04. he 05 and up are ugly with the fenders bugging out. Would definatley buy another if the price was right.

Pros: life of the truck

Cons: gas could be better around 20 to the gallon

Taco — Sweet truck. will not go over 80 to save its life. awesome mileage, like 35/40, awesome offroad, build quality was fantastic, cheap to own, never breaks, sweet bumper does well against oldsmobile aleros lol only down side is the lack of power but what do u expect. got it off an oil co in town for like $500 and its in near perfect condition. tough to beat

Pros: Mileage, build quality

Cons: no power

96 Tocoma — My 96 tocoma is the truck i have always wanted. It has real good acceleration for a stock 3.4 liter v6. It brakes good except it tries to lock up on really hard braking. It handles really good considering it has an 6 inch suspension lift and 33 inch bfgoodwich mud terrian km2 tires. It runs great never had a problem doesnt shake or squeak. Its interior is just like brand new. The exterior is really good shape also. It gets around 14 mpg with the lift and bigger tires. The truck is really fun to drive it looks good sounds good and has a bad system with two solo baric kicker 12's and a 1800 watt kenwood class d mono amp.

Pros: 4x4, lift kit

Cons: none

Reliable And Capable Little Truck — Great handling with modified suspension, but towing could be helped with more horses. Inside could be better but i'm too tall and have to lean forward to see above . Off-road this is great and not affraid to push it to the max. Maintenance wise ?? nothing to do on it, it dont break and it's not like i dont try.

Pros: Chnanged spark plugs and brakes aftert 200K  nothing else.

Cons: Weak rear suspension and could be cheaper, with a diesel.

The Truck In The Pic Resembles Mine - The Body Drop And Rims — the tacoma was a great reliable truck. i had a heavy right foot and loved to pop the clutch. needless to say the only thing i had to replace the clutch. the toyota tacoma was the most reliable vehicle i ever had.

Pros: 5 spd, 4cyl, awsome gas mileage.

Cons: light rear end, not enough room,
