    Overall:

    Great Ride, Comfortable, And Power. — I had a Toyota 1994 xtended cab V4 for 13 years. Last week the engine blew at 177,000 miles. I decided to get a new truck. I now have a V6 Tocoma 4WD manual transmission. I like the comfort, power. It's a smooth ride and great acceleration. Good sound system. It's quite an upgrade from my previous truck

    Owner for 0 years, 1 months

    Miles Driven per Year:12,000

    Pros: It looks great.  It's comfortable, and has great acceleration.   

    Cons: Uses more gas than my old truck. Not made in green anymore.

    Toyota Reliability Shines — I enjoyed this truck's ride although a tad harsh. Fuel Economy is poor for such a small truck. The V6 is dated and inefficient but uber reliable. The tech is outdated as well but this was an 08. I recently bought a 2015 MUCH BETTER Technology and the SPORT rides better as well.. Toyota is resting on their laurels but the Nissan Frontier is a better choice on paper for a small truck today for the money, And I am not a Nissan fan at all. I love these little trucks. GM is not in the race IMO with the Colorado. GM has too many problems right now. I don't trust their designs and production for the long run. The Colorado looks bland and I just don't trust GM My Toyota Service Center is MUCH better and modernized. They discount everything for me having purchased three vehicles there. I would rather have an 08 Tacoma than a 2015 GM anything.

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

    Pros: Toyota Reliability
    OK Ride
    Holds resale value

    Cons: No BT
    Terrible MPG Fuel economy is worse than Corvette
    Need TSB for springs if you are going to carry listed weight

    Sold>>>>>>hard To Give Up And Replace....very Hard Act To Follow. — I like driving a vehicle that does not depreciate and is extremely reliable. build quality is excellent. Has decent fuel economy when driving normally. Nice ride height, Very smooth for a truck. What can be said. Its a Toyota Tacoma. Never outdated. Never needs to be traded at wholesale prices. Never towed anything so could not rate that,

    Pros: It's a Tacoma. RELIABLE.  No problems. Very carlike ride for a truck. Lots of power on tap when needed. Comfortable cabin. Build quality excellent.

    Cons: Not a great vehicle for fuel economy but it's a truck. A tad long. and I have the 5 foot bed,
