I don't where these guys get off...
I have a 05 Tacoma V6 TRD sport. It is hands down the smoothest, most comfortable truck I have ever driven, let alone owned. It is super quiet inside, the wife always asks where I am when I supposed to be driving and I have to crack the window to prove I'm really driving! I have les schwab XTX sport tires, plus with the locking front and rear diff. it is like a cat tractor.
I mean I have scared my wife on many occasions going up stuff my buddy in his Dodge just can't touch. Plus it is fast. I mean real fast, will out run Mustangs all day (265HP at the wheels).

I have a '05 Tacoma TRD sport, 6-speed manual with 55k.
I love the smoothness of the ride and shifting. The stereo sound is amazing, and the sound of the engine is like music to my ears. If I had it my way, I would make the engine sound roar louder!
I also have a Ford Truck, but I enjoy the Tacoma more.

I have on 07 Toyota Tacoma TRD SPORT Package manual tran, short box.
I can say this with the most honesty that I have driven both domestic and import vehicles and as far as compact truck I will never, ever, ever buy a Toyota again. I take good care of this thing 82,000km rear tires ruined. Now try finding a low cost 17inch tire to fit the rim... next to impossible.
Heater blower motor, I've gone through three of them, yes three, and the problem as seen to me is still not fixed. One of the pullies seized at 68,000 and the dealer said it was out of warranty.
I will never purchase a vehicle new off the lot again, and dealers are there to rip you off. If I could go back in time I would have purchased a FORD. My dad was right about imports, I'm sure he rolled over in his grave when I drove that pile off the lot. Truck previous to the Tacoma, FORD Ranger, put it through hell and back and still had no real reoccurring problems.
