I dislike not having heated side mirrors, no rear defrost, no MPG display, the placement of the cruise control switch, and easily scratched paint job.

Two trips to the dealer to get the tailgate latch fixed on a 2013 Prerunner. Both times it lasted a week. I bought some lithium grease and fixed myself. It came from he factory with no lubrication! Brakes squeal. There's a clicking or popping sound when I make a right turn. I had a 96 and a 2003. Both were of higher quality than this one.

Heated rear window is a great idea.

Never understood the skid-plate package, when really its a flimsy piece of aluminum guarding nothing nothing more than a few inches of bumper trim. I was really hoping the extra $400.00 or whatever I spent on it would've extended it back to the transfer case, and fuel tank.

I dislike the fact that the spare tire and the tailgate don't automatically come with locks on them, especially considering the price I paid for the truck. That's about it.

What I Dislike in my brand new Taco 2013 4WD/DC/LB/Sport-TRD/Navigation

1. Fog push button - It does not have indicator, you don't know if are they on/off (Toyota selling this button for 75$)
2. Radio - you have to keep your key inside the ignition to listen to the radio. (But I build my own MOD, so now it works great without key)
3. Rear camera - No night-mode, turns off automatically after 5 min.
4. Door Lock - doors does not close automatically when you put to Drive gear.
5. 120V outlet - is not working without the ACC key. (I use MOD from this forum now it works without the key).
6. Cargo Net - SUPER small size.

But I still happy with this truck!

What do I dislike about my tacoma?

1. Lacking power/not very responsive when you need that extra kick. I have a v6 but it shifts like grandma's toy.

2. Too much wind noise.

I want them to continue making regular cab trucks with:

1. a better bench seat
2. power mirrors, it's just a shit ton easier to adjust these with power.
3. increase durability JUST BECAUSE

that's it. otherwise i'm really happy with what I got, which was a bare bones truck. the bench seat not having seating positions is my only real complaint.

Another thing about the strap.... the cap is "stuck to" the truck.
Ever stop at a station where the handle latch is damaged, doesn't work, or was disabled by the station owner to make people stand there?
Pull the handle, and slip the cap in sideways to block it open.

Can't do that with the strap.
A can of Copenhagen does the exact same thing
I hate ones that try to do that to pumps. That's valuable time to clean out my truck.

Have new 2013 Prerunner Auto V/6, getting knocking noise I think in lwr end or engine when accelerating. dealer says put high octane gas. Owners manual states for 87 octane. Using both & still getting knocking that wife even notices ? Would living in slightly higher elevation 1400 ft. make any difference. Any info. would be helpful. Thanx.

Ha! First world problems. Must be rough holding a button for 3 seconds. Remember manual windows?

As for me, there's nothing I dislike about mine. I guess one thing could be all the "rules" for all the traction/4wd modes. Has to be in 4L, has to be under a certain MPH, hold this button instead of pushing it for a different mode.... It get's confusing. I can't dislike something for not understanding it yet though.
