I wouldn't trade this truck for anything.
I think this project just ended up in the hands of the wrong reviewer. While the point about Mid-size trucks being an iffy value proposition at their price point is valid, this review leaves out truck stuff entirely: hauling, towing, offroading.
Also, and it's hard to fault reviewers for this because it's not really their domain, some of the Taco's value for most of us owners comes from the reliability and durability. Simple fact is these trucks don't break nearly as much as the other options in their class. That goes a long way towards ownership value and can't really add any points in a review designed to look at a properly functioning vehicle.
Resale value is another similar item that's quite valuable to owners but really can't factor into a review.
"intangibles" are a large part of the reason the Taco crushes its competition in the segment when it comes to sales. But you can't put them in review text.
