Love My Tacoma — This has been a great truck for my husband. He drives to Dallas every day and it sits high and gets great gas mileage for him. He purchased it with 45K miles and it now has 150K+ and we still have many years that we can get out of it. It is a great vehicle.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great gas mileage

Cons: Backseat is ok...not much leg room if you have all adults in the truck

Best Mid-sized Truck Out There. — Great looking truck. Very comfortable ride. Toyota reliability. 245 stock HP. With a good set of tires... there's no snowstorm that can stop this truck. Turning radius has a lot to be desired, but all in all the Toyota Tacoma is one of the best vehicles you can buy.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Plenty of room, plenty of power and very reliable.

Cons: Fuel economy isn't quite as good as estimated MPG but then again... I can't drive 55.

Tacoma — Great truck. Love the way it drives, off-roads. Handles loads really well. I really wish that Toyota would fix the squeaky blower fan on low and the leaf springs. Also I want them to put out a disel version in the US!!

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

Pros: Great Truck. Great to have a Half ton capability in a 1/4 ton truck.

Cons: Toyota needs to get the Gas milage up to 30mpg before someone else does.

Have Had No Real Problems In 4 Years And 65000 Km — Good truck overall, but a full-size gets similar gas mileage with more size and capacity. Good head room in the front. Not much leg room in the back seats but they are deep so they are still pretty comfortable. Four wheel drive system works very well with the front having a locking diff. It is a bit light in the rear end though so it rides a bit choppy when empty.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great in winter.

Cons: Ride is a bit rough, poor fuel mileage

Love It! — Long bed holds a couch (which is bad when friends find out), towing package is enough for small loads (including a small ski boat), and room for 5. Better than a car, and goes places a larger truck can't. Very fun truck to drive.

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

Pros: This truck gets the job done.

Cons: Gas mileage, or if you need a full-sized V-8.
