    After years of full-size trucks mostly diesels I bought a Tacoma. After my 2011 dodge 3500 dually crew cab broke down twice in one week I said I am done. So now I own a 2011 Tacoma double cab short bed tix pro trd. I hope this will be a good truck.

    Since 2007 I have had 4 dodges and 1 chevy all have had dpf exhaust systems and all of them have given me problems because I don't drive on the interstate enough and the fuel milage bites. I missed my 2006 cummins but I reviewed to pay 30,000 for a 5 or 6 year old truck.
    I bought my Tacoma a week ago and put about 550 miles on it and love it so far, other then the rear suspension. Thanks to Tacoma world I know about the tsb's, thank you.
    Right know I can not bring myself to call it a taco.
