2001 Toyota Tacoma SR5 TRD 3.4L V6 from North America
Best mid-sized truck ever!
The suspension bushings squeek over bumps.
The powerful, smooth 3.4L V6 is Toyota's best small engine I've ever experienced. Rides very nicely for a pickup truck, however the uncomfortable body roll when turning has caught my attention. The stock stereo sounds excellent; Toyota has come a long way in the "tunes" department. I'm impressed with the trucks capabilities off road, taking everything I could throw it's way without hesitation. The locking rear diff. makes getting stuck impossible.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

My 4runner has no power with the 3.0,is the 3.4 really that more powerful when hooked to an automatic or should my next Toyota be a standard?

If I was you, I would be very cautious with the locking diff. The late model Tacomas seem to have problems with it. The locker in my old Tacoma jammed up, causing the rear end to blow up, and the solenoid that acuates the locker goes out a lot. Ya, the locker is nice, but don't depend on it.
