    more than likely will buy a Tacoma. Reasons why are: Tundras build quality stinks. Feel very cheap, Gas mileage SUCKS!!!! and if I were going to buy a full size it would be the new F-150 but after driving a full size again for a couple of weeks the size of the Tacoma is appealing. I drive a Prius now and I have been VERY spoiled with gas mileage and convenience of size and maneuverability.
    things I love about the Tundra the Tacoma lacks are the sunroof and rear sliding window.

    Well if you want it for gas mileage get the 4 cyl and leave it stock.

    Wow. If I drive it hard I may get 35mpg. I typically get around 47 but have gotten as much as 53.
