This truck is expensive, but you get what you pay for
I have owned this Toyota truck for about a year and a half and have had no major mechanical problems. I have noticed, however, that after it would rain, the carpet under the passenger side floorboard would be damp. A mildew smell would be obvious. I have not taken it to the dealer yet. I'm going to check out the seals in the firewall and door panels first.
This truck is very fast! I have owned two Ford Rangers (1990, and 2000) and this Tacoma has much better acceleration (even compared to the Ford 4.0).
The off road capabilities are much better developed than the previous 4X4's I've owned (Ford Ranger)
The double cab is really roomy and works well transporting my wife and 2 year old son around town.
The truck looks great.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
