I've had mine since 2010 and have a few improvements.

I would like a luxury package with heated seats and steering wheel, a moon roof, automatic climate temp control, power seats, more interior lights like on the doors, trip computer, dampered tailgate drop down like the tundra, and power rear window. Could make the truck expensive but I'd be willing to pay for it.

I cannot see the display on the radio during the day with polarized sun glasses.

ALL knobs and buttons need indicator lights to tell you if they are on or off.

Lights in the bed where the 3rd brake light is.

Front and middle D-loop tie-downs in the bed.

Locking fuel door.

USB and 120V AC plugs inside the cabin.

Built in brake controller for towing like large trucks.

Much larger backup camera screen. I only use it when backing up to a trailer and with my reader glasses on.

250 Amp alternator to run a 1000 W inverter with out battery drain.

Things that don't bother me:

Ticking engine. I couldn't care less.

I have no complains about looks. I could even use MORE chrome.

It's interesting that some are complaining about power. I think it has more than enough. It's not a sports car but will hold it's own if needed. And this is without a SC.

About $100, you can do it in 15 minutes.

I miss the lack of an unlocked low range. Like in my 95 I could shift to low range in 2 wheel drive and use low range in lots of situations where low was less stress on the clutch etc..., but not 4wd, which would get potentially all bound up and tight like my 12 does. So I miss that.

Otherwise, I like the vehicle. The paint is a little soft, but I think thats true on all new cars today.

I really like mine, it only has 1190 miles on it. One thing that really drives me nuts is at start up the high RPM's that last a min or longer. The brakes are really touchy and I can feel the ABS vibe when I apply the brakes.

There is only one thing I dislike about my Tacoma... the fact that even on a short drive to the store and back I will pass no less than 10 others. And I live in the country- I might pass 20 cars total. The other day I drove to get some take out, it's 15 minutes down a fairly busy 2 lane, not divided highway and counted the Tacomas-all years... 16 of them in less than 18 miles.

No one ever said a Tacoma was an exclusive ride. Its a Toyota, not a Bugatti.

I wish my first gen came with the suicide door access cab like the 2nd gens. My extended cab rear seats are hard to get to and too uncomfortable for anyone to sit in them.

I hate the auxiliary jack in mine being so quiet, the vibrations, and how reverse is geared way too high

Squishy sound when pushing the brake pedal.
Awful stock stereo and no option.
Clunky shifting 2->3.
Suspension too soft.

Some disappointment

Newbie here... Thanks to all... Info I'd gooooood stuff on this site !!

I traded a 2010 tundra for a 2013 TRD OFF RD tacoma... Those tundras are "TRUCKS"! When I looked at the specs... I thought the light duty I do a tacoma would be great.... A few things I'm disappointed in;

-Cheesy rear suspension, dealer won't TSB a 13 yet.
-no bed light... Come on!!
-no defrost mirrors... What is up...
-boot room at peddles is a joke... I work in this truck!
-in cab inverter... Where's that at?
- I'm tired of increasing the fan speed... When I thought I put it in 4wd! Does any TRD engineers drive these things?
- what is up with the mud flap... Dang!! I've ripped them off to many times!!
-Toyota STOP using those dang push in clips instead of screws or bolts!!! We the people are paying to much for you to use that crap!!
-motor ping.. Maybe related to tranny shifting to early..
-slick bed material ...
-restriction on all the 4wd goodies... Dang! I'm a grown kid... 47! Trust me!
-not sure id buy another one... My mileage isn't much better than my tundra.
I'm off rd several hrs a day!

On my 2011 Access Cab, I was disappointed that it did not come with a gas filler door that could be unlocked from the cab and a lock on the tailgate to keep it from being easily stolen.

That and my damn fender trim, for the life of me, stays faded like a 90's flat top.

I can get mine nice and shiny for about 3 days with some serious armor alling... yeah, 3 days.

The "jump Seats" in the accessory cab. I wish they would eliminate those darn things or at least make them optional because without those darn jump seats and seat belts, I COULD DRIVE IN THE CARPOOL LANE

The clutch in the 5 speed seems rough if you pull out quickly compared to some 5spd's ive driven. Its almost like you can feel the springs flexing in the friction disc.

- You either have to press the little button on the dash or push the clutch pedal halfway through the floorboard to start the truck (I'm 5'6", I have stubby legs)

- Crappy rear springs

- Ticking. I keep thinking somethings wrong with my brand new truck

- My exhaust hangers are rusting ALREADY

- Pillars are too large IMO, makes for some annoying blind spots

All in all, little nit-picky things. I still wouldn't exchange it for any other small truck.
