Hi there. I am new to the forum because I do not (yet) own Tacoma. I am coming to the group to find out of if ther are any known problems with the particular year/configuration that I am considering.
Before I get started, let me say that I did some searching but all I came up with were tons of "Hi, I'm new to the group" with the "welcome to the group" responses. It's nice to know that the group is friendly, but not terribly useful. On to my questions.
I am considering buying a 2008 4 door Tacoma. It's 4X4, TRD, V6, 5ft bed. I am most interested in the 4door/V6 aspect than the 4X4 (I have a dedicated trail rig) but will admit that the 4X4 will likely be used from time to time ;-)
So, are there any 'gotchas' that I should be aware of? Any premature wear items I should investigate? Problems with 4X4, transfer case, bearings, seals, brakes, engine, etc...?
Thanks in advance for any honest feedback you can provide.
