    OEM only :( Too scared to do anything else.
    I switched from a Accord Coupe to an '11 Taco about 1 month ago. I just had a couple of concerns about the truck on what is normal and not normal.

    Is this common:

    • Engine Ticking noise
    • When you first start your car or at an intersection while on the brake the truck lunges
    • Suspension sag (truck appears to lean one way)
    • Can't see radio display while using Poloraized glasses
    • ~20MPG (v6)
    • Bug shield scratching hood (removed shield)
    • A lot of people staring at your truck
    • Tacoma owners park by each other
    Thanks for any input

    Is this common:

    Engine Ticking noise - Yes
    When you first start your car or at an intersection while on the brake the truck lunges - Yes, caused by the a/c compressor
    Suspension sag (truck appears to lean one way) - Yes, called "Taco Lean"
    Can't see radio display while using Poloraized glasses - Yes
    ~20MPG (v6) - Yes, that's what I average (4x4 will be worse)
    Bug shield scratching hood (removed shield) - Yes, but try a Weathertech bug deflector
    A lot of people staring at your truck - Of course
    Tacoma owners park by each other - Yes

    And before you ask...Yes, your bank account will be noticeably smaller thanks to never ending mods, accessories, etc.

    You're getting ~20 mpg???? Consider yourself blessed :)
    Most I've gotten is 18.5 with mixed driving. Think we're still burning
    winter gas here in CA though.
