The thing that made me switch from Nissan to Toyota is reliability. Both my Nissans plus my Dad's (2002 Frontier) gave what we now call 'Nissan signature problems.' In your second year you get a power steering leak, a couple months after you get a brake cylinder leak, in the third year you have a overheating problem and then the transmission fails. Funny how all three Nissans gave the same problems. I have had my Tacoma for two years now and no problems so far. Mine is black, but if I had to do it again I would go with SPEEDWAY BLUE !
i like Frontiers, i actually looked at the NISMO pkg, but it was too close in price to the TRD, and the toyota looks better (imo) and has a better resale value (fact)
although what you said about the nissan being more of a work horse.... i cant agree with that. yes its stronger, but the tacoma's towing capacity is the same or higher (cant remember, its been a while since i have compared them) hauling capacity is fine in the taco after the TSB, and the taco has a better 0-60 time and stops faster. even though the nissan is stronger, the taco performs better. Toyota did "more" with "less", which is a testament to their engineering. and, the taco gets better mileage while it out perfroms the fronty. Taco all the way baby!
