    I love mine. I'm running a cap and bumpers and it is still zippier than my 3fe Fj80. I wasn't too sure about it until I test drove it a few times. I really like the buckets and the console setup that comes in the auto package.

    I have a 2012 DC PreRunner SR5 2.7 Automatic and it has more than enough power for anyplace I want to go or anything I want to do with it. When I do straight HWY driving I get around 26 mpg and yes.... it has plenty of power to get out of anyone's way.

    I have a 2013 4 cyl access cab auto. It has plenty of get up and go, I don't tow anything and wanted better gas mileage. I pass V6 & V8 trucks all day long but I'm not racing just driving and not trying hard. I removed the charcoal filter in the air box lid and but in an AFE dry air filter in and it seemed to add some useable power I could feel. I just did some road trips for Xmas and I got 24 mpg at 70-85 mph. I seem to get about the same around town maybe just a mpg or two less??????

    Based upon your other post:

    If it has a top speed of 80, there's something wrong with your truck.

    I think your truck has a problem. I too have a 2012 Access cab automatic, and you can see my mileage average in my sig from Fuelly. I can sail past 80 and have driven many mountain roads with mine. It's definately not a powerhouse, but something is amiss with yours.
