I just purchased my very first new vehicle, a 2013 Toyota Tacoma TRD Offroad 4x4.
I have always wanted a 4x4 Tacoma. I had a 2004 model access cab a couple of years ago but it was underwhelming with the 2.7L I4 and not being 4x4. I ended up getting rid of it because it almost killed me on a couple of occasions where it would turn off on me out of nowhere. I would be driving and out of nowhere it would shut off and leave my brakes and steering damn near inoperable. Anyhow I took it in to Toyota and my parents traded it in for a Honda Pilot. I informed Toyota of the issue and they said that it seemed there was a recall on the ECU.
Anyhow on to the present, I was previously driving a 2006 Honda Civic Si which I loved and enjoyed driving very much. I bought it salvaged and fixed it up myself replacing the drivers side airbag, SRS unit, ABS module, bumper shock sensors, hood, bumper, right side fender, and right side headlight. After I fixed it I never had any issues with alignment or anything else for that matter.
I recently got married and bought a house and am a father to be so my wife and I decided that we needed a bigger vehicle that could be used for hauling house "stuff" that otherwise would require us borrowing a truck and transport our family comfortably. Thus we decided to spring for a Tacoma that I've always wanted. Well after seeing the price of the used second gen Tacomas I decided to spend the extra couple grand and just buy a brand new one.
I've been browsing the site and it has a lot of very useful information from a lot of very knowledgable members.i look forward to learning as much as possible about my new vehicle.
