The Limiteds are what they are: overpriced Tacomas for sure, but I love every bit of mine. Best truck I have ever owned. I do not go mudding like I am sure a lot of you on this forum do to need a TRD Off-road for the better suspension. I did however get a 4x4 for when I go out and I would have liked some less street tires but whatever, I will replace them when these wear out.
My needs were primarily for driving to/from work, hauling 2 small kiddos and a wife around, home improvement trips for the house, picking up random things I buy, weekend camping/hunting trips, etc. Rarely will I need 4x4 but will be nice to have if it is muddy when I go out with the guys in the fall or spring.
The main requirement for buying my truck was leather to wipe off when my son spills his strawberry milk on the seat, and no other Tacoma offered that or else I probably would have got a TRD Sport and added leather if Toyota made them.. Something I could wipe off was a deal breaker for me.
I have to admit, the upgraded JBL
stereo is awesome -- the subwoofer hits hard for a factory radio. I use the Pandora radio everyday and love the integrated HomeLink garage door opener in the mirror.
The Tacoma Limited is a nice quality truck I could drive until the wheels fell off with leather that offered semi-reasonable gas mileage. The people that have them, love them. It meets my needs, but I realize they aren't cheap.
