The Toyota Tacoma is great economical transportation
Nothing serious has gone wrong with the vehicle.
The only engine issue I had was a "check engine" light on because of a loose gas cap.
The parking brake cable kinks when it's released, and there is a small rain leak around the passenger foot area.
This truck is perfect and reliable transportation in all weather conditions. It doesn't have a lot of features and options, but it does everything I need a vehicle to do. It has power steering for easy handling, and high ground clearance for driving through heavy snow.
Fuel mileage is great. I recently installed Bosch Platinum/Iridium (4 electrode) spark plugs, and began using synthetic oil with 10% Duralube. Mileage increased from 26 to 33 MPG on the highway. The only thing I don't like about the design is the cheap plastic parts used in the interior.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
