I was looking around to buy a truck before end of year. It will be my first truck. Did some research and thinking of getting a taco. My 01 Prius died last night so now instead of wanting to get a new vehicle, I need to.
My uses for the truck will be towing a boat, going camping (tent), hauling bikes to bike paths and the more than occasional need of going to the hardware store for home improvement project material.
Looking at what is available with the tacos, the Prerunner double cab v6 should fit the bill. The SR5 package would have enough conveniences for me. I'm not the offroad type so the 4X4 would be overkill for me. Looking around, this configuration does not appear to be overly stocked by dealers. Anyone have ideas of other configs that would work out similar to what I described? The 4x4 adds a ton to the bottom line as well. Trying to get a truck for lower 20's. I'm also considering the Nissan Frontier, so if any of you have compared the two trucks and have some opinions to share, Imma listening... I've read a few things here that I didn't know, like the bumpers rusting within months... and with all the problems Toyota has had in the last year, I have concerns.
