I've had big V8's for over 10 years now. Last year I switched to a Rogue after moving to NOVA. OMG, what a f**ng mistake that was. I couldn't take it any longer and went back to Dodge for a big RAM. The long and short they were on crack! For a company going under you think they would have kissed my a$$. I'm not even sure how I ended up at Toyota but damn if this truck don't suit. It's a perfect fit for me and my needs. I couldn't be happier! The dealership was nothing special and as a matter a fact I have decided not to go back just because of personality differences. My 09 SR5 TRD OFF ROAD 4X4 was only $24,590. Couldn't beat the price either. The truck had been on the lot since last October so I guess they wanted to move it.

Why the taco? I wonder how many threads through time have been created asking this, LOL

- Size is perfect - I don't have a huge trailer or anything, and I don't need to overcompensate, LOL

- Mileage is not bad

- Lost of online communities / aftermarket parts / support

- I bought it because it's what I wanted. My opinion was that it's a badass truck that will do the job while looking cool doing it. It hauls mulch. Gravel. Small equipment. Tools. The ontire family.

- I LOVE how the rear seat of my DC converts to an indoor truck bed. Great for hauling electronic equipment of other items without ruining the upholstery.

-Can enter / leave any construction job site REGARDLESS of terrain. ( I freelance as a deck designer / landscaping engineer) It's nimble enough to go wheeling. It's fun to drive on the beach.

- It's a Toyota Tacoma. Don't like it, then don't get one. It fits me, and there's plenty of other people here that I share that common ground with.

See a fellow taco? Give them a blink of the headlights. Tacomas FTW!

LOL

Ummmm. Well, let see.

The Tacoma is the BEST looking truck in its class.
I wanted a SMALLER truck.
They hold their VALUE.
They last forever!
I snowboard and needed four-wheel-drive for the snow.
My sister and her boyfriend work for Toyota so I got a phat discount on the truck.
And, of course, they're awesome off-roading devices.

Good stuff.

If you dont NEED a full size theres no reason to get one and tacomas are clearly the best mid-size trucks out there.

Hahaha this is really funny actually, you come to a Tacoma Forum to bash on the Tacomas obviously to stroke your own trucks ego because you are disappointed in your own. If your truck was such a "real truck" you would have better things to do than this hahah.

Oh and back to the OP..
I had an F150 before this and the Tacoma hands down beats it in everything.
They look great.
Amazing reliability.
Resale!!!
And why not?!

Haha. That's funny.

I'm sorry you feel that way.

Quick question: Why are you on a Tacoma website and commenting on a thread based on why people bought their Tacomas? Then, bashing them and telling them that they will never know what a "real" truck is like with out know what trucks they have owned in the past?

Just wondering.

PS - My first truck was a Ford F-150 and I grew up with Fords. Every car and truck my family drives is a Ford. Do you consider that to be a "real" truck?

1. Because I needed a light sport truck and not a big work truck...better for my kind of off-roading.
2. It has to fit in the garage.
3. I did my homework so I didn't get ripped off again like when I bought a Blazer.
