    Perfect 3 Season Sport Truck. — I LOVED my X-Runner. It was very fast and accelerated great. Loved the 4.0L V6 and 6 spd manual. The styling was very noticable and I got looks everwhere I went. Even entered it into NOPI the first year it waws out and got alot of compliments. This truck would handle like a sports car gripping the road around corners. Used it for solo II racing and it performed great! Had to get rid of it because a car seat does not fit in the back seats well and didn't like slidding around in the snow with my son so i traded for a 4x4 tundra instead. I truely miss this truck and 1 day will own another again.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Performance, speed, acceleration, style, Front seats were not real firm but wrapped around you.

    Cons: rear seats. Onlt 900lb cargo capacity including passengers. Bilstein shocks sometimes too stiff. $300/ piece tires. Lacked traction in snow and ice.

    Great Looker, Gets Lots Of Questions, I'm Proud To Onw It. — This is an amazing truck by Toyota! First test drive I knew I had to have it. I had driven a 5 cylinder Colorado extreme but it could not compare to the X-Runner. The power this truck have is impressive and for a truck it’s weight is not so bad either. It sports a ractive exhaust dual in, dual put system and it sounds totally radical cruising. My sound system is fully aftermarket and was easy to install. 6 speed manual tranny with cruise control makes it easy and efficient on the long haul. Loving my Yota!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Swseet looking, totally reliable, great engine note

    Cons: costly to purchase, it's not sure if it's a sports car or truck?

    Own If You Like To Drive A Performance Vehicle! — Front disc brakes rear drums are ok. Great handling in the corners puts you in the seat ok. Gas mileage sucks but who cares wehn ya have fun. Hellava great ride to drive. Inside is nice and roomy rear seats are a little cramped if you keep em in. Exterior is different not really seen anywhere but on the X Runner.

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

    Pros: Fun to corner in.

    Cons: Not good on mileage

    Would Rather Have This Than A Normal Tacoma. This Is A Great Truck To Drive — 0-60 in under 7 seconds. not too fast but good for a truck. I made the hood scoop open, it IS a 6speed. Very good, it can slide when i want it to. Super fun to drive!! you dont see a lot of them on the road.

    Pros: 6Spd, looks great, dont see too many of them

    Cons: gas mileage is OK, but not great. i dont drive for gas mileage anyway

    Buy One — Strong engine with a responsive transmission, love the LSD. Looks great. Comes with a very good warranty. The paint job isn't that great, but they've fixed that on newer models. Gets decent fuel mileage, runs better on premium, but fine on regular. Rear suspension squeaks if not maintained properly.

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

    Pros: Great powertrain, awesome stance, good looks.

    Cons: None really

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Meets and exceeds most of my needs.

    Cons: Dont get it if you don't drive a manual.

    Not The Best On Gas Mileage, But It Is A Strong Vehicle And Won't Let You Down. — Only had a few minor issues with this vehicle which include: 1) passenger side sun visor fell out. Was easily replaced by Toyota. 2) plastic caps on the rims would fall off during normal driving. That is it for problems. Everything else has worked great and I've owned this vehicle nearly 5 years!

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

    Pros: Great 4X4 capabilities with lots of after market upgrades available.

    Cons: This is a great vehicle.
