Outstanding Purchase — Can't really find anything of significance. It has been a reliable truck that has fulfilled my needs. It always receives compliments on how good it looks. I like the round wheel wells as they aren't angled like the models are today.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: This midsize truck has met all the demands I have put on it  and has never let me down. The Michelin tires were good for 105k miles before needing replacement. Shocks were swapped at 145k. Exterior paint still looks good eventhough parked outside garage since 2004. Regular maintenance is very minor.

Cons: The big exhaust pipe (10 inch diameter) growl was overbearing on long trips. Dashboard clock is poorly positioned. The cargo rings in corners of truck bed have rusted but still will function as new.

Ever Hear Of Synyrd's "nuthin' Fancy"? — Great looking truck with no frills. Has old fashion roll up windows, 5 speed manual and a rear slider, 4wd and 2.7l engine. Love the truck but am thinking of selling to obtain a Tacoma double cab with manual transmission for wen my pup like to travel along with me and my wife.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: This truck takes me everywhere I go and I do a lot of huninting. I have pulled out 3 full sized vehicles that have been stuck with my lil' taco in 4wheel low. Had full sized elk whole in the bed on two occassions, plus it looks great!

Cons: Think they could do a little better with the mpg on these trucks. This has the 2.7l and it does have oversized tires...the good news is I'm going nowhere fast so I don't get tickets! Seriously, I love the truck!

Best Little Truck You Will Ever Buy — Reliable--but what else would you expect from Toyota. New tires. Less than 6k on the tires. I wouldn't two a big boat behind this truck, but I've moved a trailer full of heavy funiture a couple hundred miles with no issues.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliable

Cons: Can't think of any

Great Little Truck — One of the best Cars/Trucks I've owned. Good gas milage--very zippy. More power than you would expect from a 4cy. Gas milage is decent--somewhere between 20-23. Little rust on the bumper, seems to be a common problem

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very dependable--and powerfull for a 4-cy

Cons: small back seat--

Very Good Practical Vehicle — Very good looking Tacoma with Forest Green paint ! This truck has new front brake rotors & pads along with new timing chain and water pump. There has also been a brand new Emergency Brake installed with all Toyota parts. This is a 6 cylander engine with a lot of power over the road or in 4 Wheel drive !

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good Strong Tacoma Pickup with Trailer hitch.  There is also a "Remote Starter" installed which comes in handy on those cold mornings !  Good Tires all around ...

Cons: The Bed has had it share of scratches, but I was going to get a bedliner or have it rubber coated and then this wouldn't be an issue.

Awesome — Great Truck! Recommend to anyone for any purpose. I would suggest that anyone buying new should get the four door and long bed. Unbeatable in the winter. I'm only trading mine because I don't really use it as a truck anymore and need an SUV.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliable, Great Winter Vehicle, Cheap to Fix

Cons: fuel economy, engine noise

Buy One, — Prefect reliability so far, 7 years and 110,000 miles. never left me on the side of the road. Tows reasonably well, the only issues towing is could use a little more power. Typical toyota computer though. if you go from beach to mountains. Once you get there best thing to do is disconnect battery both sides and touch the cables together for 30 seconds. resets computer to default. Otherwise it takes about 3 days to learn. Gets most of the performance back.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: its paid for

Cons: none

Noce — good car, great feel on the pedal and clutch and rugged body but it's a rough ride when it's empty, fill it with 1000 lbs of stuff and it rides like a Lexus. Arm rests are brutal but seat is comfortable.

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

Pros: awesome

Cons: economy

Good Dependable Vehicle For The Common Person/ Offroader — I bought this truck in the summer of 2006. I have my likes and dislikes about it. So here goes: Likes: Dependable An Offroad Beast Fairly easy to work on when need be 5 speed & V6 & 4wd (getting harder to find all these together) Dislikes: Pretty week on the powerside Seats could be a lot more comfortable As w/ many Toyotas the cab lighting isn't the greatest and bulbs burn out early -Dash and console lights are expensive...$6 a piece...I've replace 2 so far and have 2 more blown behind the dash....and none of them are easy to get to! Extended Cab area is small to say the least with no backward opening doors to help w/ entry

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Dependable

Cons: Not the most luxurious

Awesome — Bought this truck for my restaurant's big delivery days, it was a great pickup and I should have bought the 4 door one but didn't think about it. If you want a great truck this one was it. This truck did everything I needed it to do.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing
