Not worth the price
Nothing has broken or gone out, but it is full of issues.
Once I put 1000 miles on my truck I started to have issues. First is the engine. It makes an extremely annoying ticking sound at 1500RPMs and 21RPMs. I brought the truck in to the dealer and told them I thought it was a piston slap or a lifter tick. He got a tech to come out and listen to it and immediately stated he thought it was a lifter... but once he found it it was under warranty, the sound was normal and I shouldn't worry. I have since brought the truck in about the noise several times and each time they say it is normal. I finally wrote Toyota and told them of my issue and their response was take it back to the dealer. I paid 26,000 for this truck. That is a lot of money for an engine that makes so much noise you hate to drive it. The engine also doesn't get very good mileage. I get about 16.5 on the freeway and about 14 in the city.
I have the access cab model and at about 3000 miles, the rear suicide door on the drivers side started to make a knocking noise whenever I hit a bump or dip. I can't get it to go away and when I brought it to the dealer they said they could not duplicate the noise so nothing can be done.
The clutch on this truck is now making a creaking noise when I let it out which is also very annoying. Also if I don't drive the truck for a few days the truck has horrible chatter for the first few miles.
I am the type of guy that hates any ticking, creaking, knocking, or popping noises in a vehicle, and this truck has them all. It has been reliable and I have never broken down though. If you are looking for a reliable truck and are not bothered by noise it will serve you well, but if you hate noises, you will hate this truck.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
