I dont remember all of the features but I love Toyota Tacomas. I would really like to find a diamond in the rough, AT, 4X4 Toyota Tacoma; preferably a later model. I cant afford a newer one.

Owned 100% — This is an outstanding line of vehicles, I imagine if I ever sell this truck I'll probably buy another Tacoma. I've added a transmission fluid radiator and Ride Rite air bags on the rear axle for towing. I've also added a cold air intake and after market exhaust/muffler. This vehicle has an aftermarket infinity head unit, upgraded speakers and added a sub-woofer. I love this truck and I've instructed my wife to have me buried in it!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Excellent commuter vehicle, but with the power and the 4WD, it also makes an excellent utility vehicle.  Low maintenance, decent MPG

Cons: Have not found anything wrong with this vehicle

Would Buy Again — Great truck that could do most anything. Never stuck in snow or sand. Good mileage for any 4wd v6 truck. Low cost maintenance. No issues after 200,000 miles! Would be nice to have a manual option. Go out and get one!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Towed trailers as large as 3500lb camping pop-ups, U-haul, etc.  holds 1 yard of compost, several bikes, camping gear, dogs, etc.  good gas mileage for a v6 truck, 18-20mpg.

Cons: Towing up long hills is difficult.  Also, controlling speed on downhills with trailer causes front brakes to overheat.

Nice Around The Town Truck — I would recommend this truck for someone that likes to have the cargo space of a small truck - but doesn't tow or haul. It is a great run around town vehicle with 4WD, but I would not recommend long distant travel in it.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: I like the small size of the truck and low maintenance cost

Cons: The ride is not very comfortable for long distance

Great Truck ! — I sold my 2005 Nissan Frontier 4X4 and regretted it ever since. Funny thing, before I bought my Frontier, I sold a 1993 Toyota and bought a new 2001 Tacoma that I wasn't very fond of after buying it. In 2005 I bought my Frontier and by 2012, with 105K miles on it, I was looking for something with better MPG so sold the Frontier and looked for my next truck -- an older Frontier maybe ? Maybe an older Tacoma ? I figured I would "know it" when I saw it and I looked for several months at a lot of different trucks before I found this one. ALL of the trucks I have EVER owned have been manual transmissions but, this one is an automatic so that my wife can also drive it. We don't drive it often or very long distances ( only putting about 1000 mile on it in the last three months ) but, it's a nice looking truck, plenty of power and I know that I won't have to worry about it getting us where ever we need to go.

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

Pros: Good looking body styling ( not a big fan of the 2005 and up styling changes ) and legendary Toyota reliability. Truck purchased used with 112K miles and have no doubts that I will see another 200K

Cons: Not much on comfort and fuel mileage isn't the best but still a nice, reliable truck with plenty of power for towing and every day driving. The short, 5' bed ( standard with the 4 door crew cab ) is too small for hauling but, couldn't pass up the deal on this truck with low miles.
