    My 2005 Toyota Tacoma Pre Runner Double Cab — Best vehicle I have ever owned! I would buy again! I have 102,000 miles on my truck. It is still running just as strong as it did when it was new. No major problems. Just your usuals, brakes,gas,oil,tires.

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Nothing

    Hot Truck — I bought this truck in 2005 with 15,000 miles on it. I think it has almost every option. It is a great looker, everyone comments on it's appearance. It is a good compromise in size-not too big or small. Preformance is very good and MPG is not bad. Ride is bouncy and you sit too low to the ground but I am over 6ft and I have plenty of leg room. I would definetly recommend this truck to a friend.

    Pros: looks, size, interior roominess, performance

    Cons: sit low to the ground, bouncy ride

    Part Deux — This was another great Toyota pickup. Bigger than the 2000 & 2001 version I had, this model came with a 5-speed automatic transmission (claimed to get better gas mileage than with the 6-speed manual) and 4.0L engine. Got a little over 18mpg over the life of the vehicle. This replaced my Integra, but that wasn't the best move for me. I realized I like driving cars more than I like driving trucks (as a daily driver) so I sold the truck and bought an Integra again. This time it was a 1993, but I soon realized that I was also a big fan of the seatbelt/airbag combination, so sold that one for a 2000 Integra GSR. Ideally, I would have a car as a daily driver and the truck as a "backup". That's what I have now - it's perfect.

    Pros: Only had it for 10k miles, but it was a great, trouble-free truck.

    Cons: None.

    If I Was A Truck Person, I Might Drive This Forever — Better fuel efficiency than some cars. Very reliable. When I have it serviced, the only thing they find to fix on it is adding more windshield washer fluid.

    Pros: Reliable, great gas mileage for a truck

    Cons: I'm not really a truck driving type of person. The 4 cylinder engine "won't pull the hat off your head" as Dad would say.

    Roof Noise — I wrote toyota canada about the roof noise when it is raining and the thin roof material in the head liner. My truck sounds like someone is hitting the roof with a hammer when it rains hard. They stated that they would not fix this unless there were more compliants as they had only 6 to date. What is the situation with other owners?

    Best Truck I've Owned So Far — Again, one of my most favorite features in the Tacoma is it's 265 hp motor. The handling is also pretty nimble for a truck - and I own the Double-Cab Prerunner. The back seats are roomy, and can take a car seat in the middle and still seat two adults on either side comfortably. I've had two car seats in the back, but the middle seat gets a bit squishy.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The first thing I noticed when I got behind the wheel of this new generation Tacoma was the power in the motor.  There is more than enough power for hauling your family or a trailer around.  I've towed a car and you don't even notice a loss of power in the motor, you only feel sort of heavy when braking.

    Cons: You can hear some wind noise when you sit in the front.  Aerodynamics?  Who cares, it's a truck.
