how in the world is a tacoma double cab cheaper to maintain than a 5 lug? Totally kills the credibility of that article IMO.

#4!

4. Toyota Tacoma

Average maintenance: $1,584
Average repairs: $1,451
Total 5-year service cost: $3,035
Consumer Reports predicted reliability: Average
The only pickup truck on the list is among the smallest available in the United States, underscoring once again that size matters and, where maintenance and repair costs are concerned, it's the smaller the better. Besides a solid reputation for reliability, Toyota's new free scheduled-maintenance program helps drive down the truck's upkeep by $258. That's just a fraction of the cost that Cadillac and Volvo kick in with their free programs, which can only burnish Toyota's temporarily tarnished reputation.

That's why I don't like that article...they don't mention how each of the vehicles was configured. V6 vs. I4 makes a huge difference, as does 4x4 vs. 2wd, auto vs. manual, etc...
