    A little tinny? Yeah maybe a little , just give it a little time & you'll soon realize why so many people will plunk down the extra money for a Toyota & that bloated Chevy will be nothing but a distant memory. I've had full size Fords,Chevies & Dodges but overall they took a distant second place for reliability,performance,(my 2000 TRD w/3.4 V6 has pulled a few V8's while towing a boat up the Interstate 8 grade out of the desert to Jacumba in the San Diego area). And none of them can touch the resale value a Tacoma has.

    Give it time. You bought it for a reason and we're here to tell you the answers. So, start asking questions and look around. You'll be impressed by these machines.
    By the way, welcome to Tacoma World and greetings to you from San Diego ( I can say Chula Vista now thinking some people might know where this is - Thank you World Series Little League Team).



    Not that we're considering selling of course. Are we? Haha. Greetings to you man from San Diego.
