    Its Great For My Needs And Wants — Milage is about 20 highway, 15 city, and 10-12 with a 5x10 trailer. Not too shabby considering my last ride only got 14 mpg. Acceleration isn't so great, but what can you expect from a truck? Love the color, love the 4x4. I've owned it for a year and haven't had a problem with it yet.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good ole' Toyota reliability

    Cons: None

    Best Truck On The Market — Great performing car. I love my truck because it doesnt drive like a truck but more like a smaller suv but still has all the capabilities of a powerful truck. Ive had it for over 2 years and it still drives just like the day i got it.

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

    Pros: Perfomance

    Cons: Power

    Solid Built Truck. — solidly built pickup. I was on a budget, but if i had unlimited funds i probably wouldve gotten an acess cab v6 with 4wd....go out and offroad with it. With what i have, it will probably be dropped and we'll go from there.

    Pros: Looks. Best looking truck out there.

    Cons: radio is awful!

    Tacoma — I love my truck. Its just a basic Tacoma, but I think it runs great!!! It has excellent breaking. Its small for a truck so it doesnt have all the weight of a big truck or suv, so i think thats good. Its good on gas as far as trucks go. I dont have any problems with my truck.

    Pros: Quick, clean, comfortable

    Cons: doesnt have any

    My 08 Tacoma 4x4 Access Cab — With the V6 and Toyota's VVI-T technology this truck has amazing acceleration. When you kick in into H4 or L4 you can just feel the torque as the truck crawls and digs into the pavement. Can't wait until this winter! I love the indigo ink pearl (Dark Blue) paint job. For a 4X4 it gets excellent gas mileage. It is truly the funnest vehicle I think I have ever driven. I would recommend the Tacoma to anyone looking for a midsized pickup.

    Pros: Power, Handling, Gas Mileage, Design and Look

    Cons: The color shows everything

    '08 Taco — I love the rugged versatility, the attention to detail (especially with the many unlisted features on this truck) and the extraordinarily good gas mileage (22mpg city! much better then EPA ratings)

    I Love This Truck. — This truck is awesome. I was going to buy one in about six months, but I just couldn't help myself. It has a lot of features, and seems more geared toward the offroad enthusiast rather than the street driver (which is what I wanted). Has a great towing capacity, and the 4.0L engine is much more powerful than the previous V6s used by Toyota in their Pickup/4Runner lines (i.e., you won't need the supercharger offered by TRD to give it some get up and go, but you might as well).

    Pros: Roomy, comfortable, handles well, runs great.  Everything I'd want in a truck.

    Cons: Mileage could be better, but it's not much worse than the car that I'm replacing, and is consistently getting the highway mileage even with less than 1,000 miles on it.

    No auxillary hookup on the stereo.
