    • Offer a ‘Black” interior. The Tundra finally has it, why not the Tacoma? Trucks get dirty, and grey and tan interiors show it.

    • The fuel filler door needs a lock or a remote opener like the 4Runner has. My 1998 Tacoma had a key lock. Where did it go?


    • The tailgate needs a lock too. People steal them.

    • Get rid of the hard mudflaps. They are a really poor design. Bring back the old style rubber ones that won’t break and scratch when they hit things while off -roading.

    • Offer the full sliding rear window like that on the Tundra double cab. This is the only thing I miss from my 2006 Tundra 4 door.

    • Get rid of “4x4” badging and go back to “4WD”. Whoever decided to drop it should be fired. “4WD” has been associated with Toyota for as long as I can remember. “4x4” is just a generic identifier, “4WD” has always meant Toyota.

    • A coin holder in the center console would be nice. That net thing is useless. I threw it away.

    • Partner with MacNeil automotive and offer their “Weathertech Floorliners’ as dealer options. These are the best mats ever made.

    Just my 2 cents. Hope someone from Toyota reads this.

    Make the tailgate stronger!
    People shouldn't need a suspension tsb. It should already be fixed.
    Carpet flooring in a truck is stupid
    More solid tie downs in the bed
    Better lasting paint
    Fog light "on" ndicater would be nice
    It is a truck so Toyota should make it more like a truck!

    More adjustment on the steering wheel.

    A "hold" button for the trans that prevents automatic shifting out of the selected gear.

    Real bumpers instead of those sheetmetal fake bumpers.

    Get the airbags out of the seats.

    I don't think that is unreasonable at all. It should also come with a hot nympho stripper(stripper pole optional).
