2005 Toyota Tacoma Standard Cab 2.7 from North America
BUY. Less is more!!
Nothing Great Car.
20-21 miles in town, 25-27 mpg on the highway. The trans hits the power band just right. This truck is for personal use and it is perfect for home depot, flea markets, parts chasing. I can only imagine if you have to drive a lot on how the Toyota has few peers. I saw on Ebay with 250k go for $6k If your driving a $35k ford chevy and doing the same things, you should not only be ashamed, you should buy one, and save money.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Fortunately, thanks to those "ashamed" people buying $35k Fords and Chevys, they keep American companies in business.
I hate to burst your bubble, but the latest long-term reliability figures from J.D. Powers puts the Ford Ranger tops in its class (AHEAD of the Tacoma). For several years now the predicted reliability ratings of the Ranger have been EXACTLY THE SAME as the Tacoma in Consumer Reports. When I bought a small truck in 2006, I test drove both a Tacoma and a Ranger. The Ranger with similar engine and equipment was a full SEVEN GRAND less. Needless to say, I bought the Ranger and saved the seven Grand. Our family companies use Ford, Chevy and Dodge full sized trucks, as well as Rangers for light duty. 300,000 miles on the Rangers with no engine or transmission problems is not at all unusual.
