    I am looking to buy a Tacoma in the next 3-4 months. This will be my first truck, having wanted one my entire life. I am considering just the basic I4, regular cab, 4X2, 5 speed manual Tacoma....but I am worried that I might regret it later on.

    I want to hear from owners of the basic Tacoma, how do you like your truck?
    Do you regret not purchasing a V6?

    I love my Tacoma (2006 regular cab, I4). Every now and then I do wish I had extended cab, but otherwise it's perfect for what I need to do.

    I love mine except the lack of four wheel drive and space behind the seats. It has decent power and I would imagine a five speed combined with the engine would be kinda sporty especially with a 2.7L
