I used to own an 03 Tacoma base model 2wd automatic but had to sell it years ago due to finances. That thing was dependable but slow as molasses flowing upstream. I'd like to get a new Prerunner Access Cab or 4wd Access Cab in the 4cyclinder 5-speed but have to test it out to see if it has a tad more pep than my 03 (the vvt technology plus 5-speed tranmission should help I'm guessing). I'm not expecting a rocket, I know that.
I don't know if I can stretch it to the V6 and if I do I'll get the 6-speed (although I've read about some problems with that).
I don't have anything to tow but would use the bed for home projects and moving things. I also have a wife and a 2 and 4 year old but this wouldn't be our main car.
I posted this in the New Member forum but hopefully will get some responses here as it's a 4 cyl section.
