Doing a fair amount of research online, I have yet to come across very much info on experiences with 4 cylinder (2.7L), 4WD, 1st generation Tacoma's. Can anybody out there comment on these Tacoma's? How's performance/maintenance been? How's mileage in an auto vs. manual? Do the V6 Tacomas out last the I4s? I'm inclined to buy an I4 for better mileage and since I won't be pulling anything heavier than 1500 lbs. I ask because I'm close to buying my first Taco. I've recently found a 2004 4 cyl, 4WD, manual Taco with 35K miles. Asking price is 15K. Assuming everything checks out and I can talk the dealer down a grand or two, is this a decent deal?
