    You forgot engine mount frame bracket failures, shitty leaf springs & to post somewhere that will show you any sympathy.

    (sympathy for bashing our trucks on this forum that is...for whoever left the stupid anonymous rep. I wasn't looking for any sympathy for problems our trucks have had. I don't need no stinkin sympathy, just better parts to overcome bad ones so WTF evar, lol.)

    He has owned 4 mustangs (3 cobras). I am sure he has a lead foot, which accounts for the bad gas mileage.

    maybe you should take it back to the dealership...
    warranty will take care of everything but the mpg and you breaking the wire pin harness.
    my 08 has 15k goin on 16k miles so far and i have had 0 problems.
    judging from your past(and nobody really cares..fwiw),maybe you belong in a car bro...
    GL with everything, take it back to the dealership and have them fix the problems

    None. Stock with options - Roof rack, running boards, hood scoop, etc.
    Maybe you bought a brand new truck with a salvaged title ..

    Lol, like I said just ranting, and I know these things can be fixed... But Ill tell you what, when I oped my back glass and the trim fell off... I just laughed.

    I love my taco. I bought it right from the dealer that bought back my 99 (rust)

    ya just get them fixed man. :thumbsup:
    from the original post, i just figured it was another ford guy bashing the yota.
    my only complaints for my taco
    1) it is awesome
    2) it is reliable
    3)ever since i bought my taco my sex life has went up like a sky rocket..
    ok i am lying,
    stick with the tacoma.
    I am sure it is more reliable than a sc cobra...:D

    And as far as a lead foot, guilty as charged. Lol. Its really beyond me how these trucks get such poor gas mileage, but I knew that before I bought it.
