I have read many Forums on the two cars I currently own... 2003 Land Rover Discovery and a 2004 Saab Turbo Wagon. Both cars known to be quirky and problematic. But what I read here on the 2nd Gen. Tacomas scares me. I know auto forums in general tend to bring problems to a much higher level of scrutiny and attract people with these problems but the consistenccy of these issues is what keeps me reading and reading.
I'm about (was about??) to pull the plug on a 2007 4x4 Double Cab V6 Auto Long Bed, TRD Sport. I have read with interest on the two issues I find to be major, the ticking and the vibration. The other consistent issues I notice are the noisy bed, surging at stops, thin paint. Also, I take notice that 2 people are going to arbitration and I hope a third will NOT go. (ricerocket that we still need to hear back from.).
With the reading of these posts and the most latest news on the many camshaft failures of the new 2007 Tundra V8, has me wondering if I should hold on to my LR Discovery and keep towing the trailer I have for when I wished I had a truck. (2 times per week at least) and my Saab is on a second set of rear shcoks becasue I often carry heavy heavy boxes and machinery. (I take the Saab 98% of the time do to distance from house and use the LR for towing. I would be giving the Saab to the wife. That way I have a reasonalbe vehicle on MPG (as compared to a LR) and can haul things and tow things (unlike the Saab).
I just love the look of the Tacoma double Cab long bed and have my heart set on it.
Can you reassure me that Forums in genreal bring out the problems more and that I'm being a tad too nervous???
Thanks in advance. LOVE the FORUM
