    This is my first new truck ever, and this is my first new vehicle (that I own) in over 25 years. I lost my last truck in a divorce (it happens) and I’m glad to have a truck again. I have a new company car provide to me (a new car every year) for 16 years so I did not own a vehicle myself.
    I was not the owner of the company car so I did not get to make any upgrade or changes to it. Now I get to make all changes and upgrades I want or that I can afford. I guess that’s one of the reasons I got a base model Tacoma Access and not a Pre Runner so I can customize it myself, that’s part of the fun right?
    I had the class 3 Reese hitch added before I picked it up and I’m going to put some miles on it before I upgrade the stock 15” tires and rims to 16" Aluminium Wheels W/P245/75R16 Tires.
    I bought the truck on 8/19/11 before it was delivered to the dealer. I did my research and test drove a lot of vehicle then I have my local dealer find the one that I wanted. I had to wait 3 weeks on but I got what I wanted. I love my new Truck!

    You won't regret getting a Tacoma, my 2011 is the second 2nd gen I've owned and I am in love all over again.
