    Hello, my name is David and I am an alcoholic. That aside I just bought my 07 taco last month and I really enjoy her. I should have bought one in 04 when I was looking for a truck, but that is in the past. I got rid of the gas guzzling f150 and I am happy with my decision.

    I like the truck because she gets the best MPG. Although I guess I have to wait till she is entirely broken before I reap the true benefits of that from what I have read on these boards.

    So far on this trucks worst day it gets better gas mileage than my f150. Gas mileage is very important to me. I have the 4 cylinder because power is not a big deal for me. If that was the case I would have kept the 5.4 liter.

    My girlfriend tried talking me into getting a small car for the gas mileage, but I need my truck (never know when you might need one). This taco is the best out their in its class. The comparable is the ranger and the taco puts it to shame interior wise at least. Plus if I ever want to sell her I will get a decent price unlike the ford.

    I look forward to being an active member and getting to know you all.

    Later, Dave

    Welcome to TW! I am in the same boat as you (but I am still in denial about the alcoholic part :( ).

    I got a 4cyl PreRunner for the mileage. Although I am still waiting for it to get broken in, I can't complain about getting 21 MPG.

    I would love to see some pics of your Tacoma! Again, welcome!

    I quit once, and it was after I met someone. Does that count?
