- 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.

Only one complaint... I can't stand the engine tick. I'll never get used to it. Sounds like a Nike sweat shop.

Things i dislike

Absoloutley HATE my headrest! I cant stand how it sticks out and pushes my head forward.. And i also agree that the drivers door arm rest is too low. I dont know how i didnt notice these things when i test drove the truck, but i think i was just too excited. I was told that starting in 2009, car manufactures started putting these damn uncomfortable headrests in vehicles to try to reduce whip-lash in accidents.. I took mine out and put in one from a lexus gs400.
Few more things i dont like;
-engine ticks
-seats arent very comfortable
-paint on front bumper seems to chip very easily
- still having to pay over $500 in property tax for this thing after two years
-adjustable tie downs (in the tracks)in bed slide under strain
-and finally, the fact that 3 months after i bought my 2011, the 2012s came out and have a better looking front end and interior.

Property tax?! Wtf is this "property tax"? Are you paying some sort of tax just by owning a truck?

Hate
the rear suspension! I bottom out f*king EVERYWHERE (soon to be fixed by a deaver leaf pack and 2.5" Kings

the fact that the ABS doesnt shut off or tone down in 4WD- put gravel or ice under your wheels and you've just added fifty feet to your stopping distance. put me right through an intersection once and has slammed me into a big rut I saw at the last second too many times to count. -very dangerous in my opinion-

THE TRUCKS F'N MANUAL SHOWS YOU HOW TO FOLD THE SEATS FLAT. yet they simply do not. new "feature" to '13 i guess? annoying as hell.

no locking tailgate? really now?

and aside from bitching about that, it's the greatest damn truck out there. climbs like a goat too! the ATRAC is badass!

Many states have a personal property tax on vehicles, boats, trailers, etc....

California has a "Vehicle Licensing Fee in lieu of a Personal Property Tax"... because an actual tax has to pass by a 2/3rds vote.

I wonder if he returned his defective machine
I hate never knowing the end of the story /the end/

I dunno about all you guys and girls, but I'm coming over from THREE Rav4 vehicles (2000, 2003, and 2008).

I'm driving a 2007 2.7L Standard pkg, 5 spd manual, black bumpers, grill and now; black painted steel factory rims. I'm just happy to have a Tacoma to haul yard waste and do all my dump runs and errands.

Yeah, I could search forever to find faults, but frankly, I would rather be grateful that my kids have left home to build up their own lives and I can happily trade in the mini-van and Rav4 babies, now I'm just so happy to have a 'Yoda truck once again.

Just my 0.02 after tax cents!

Cheers all!

Barney
