Buy it. Period
There is a mild squeak near the front bumper that I have not been able to find, and there is a bit of bump steer on the at freeway speeds, but nothing too serious.
Although I have only put just over 2000 miles on the truck since I bought it, I absolutely love it and would buy the same truck again!! The 265HP V6 will blow the doors off almost any (if not all) stock V8 trucks out there, and passing vehicles while going 50-70MPH is an absolute breeze. Press the accelerator down an inch and you're gone! The truck handles firmly like a truck should, but not too stiff like older model domestics. I have not noticed any body roll while cornering at speed either. Visibility is very good from the driver's seat, even with the tinted windows. I average about 19.5 MPG with 60% freeway driving. The sound system is good, but not what I would call "premium". I am 6'1" and there is plenty of room for me, front or back, and getting a car seat in/out is easy and comfortable. The dash is nicely laid out, and the plastic in the interior does not feel "cheap". I test drove a 2004 Frontier and a 2004 Tacoma and found them both to be too small inside and grossly underpowered. Test drove a 2005 Frontier, loved it, and settled for the 2006 I have now. Considering how much I liked the newer Frontiers, and the price difference, I did not even test drive a newer Taco.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
