    2010 Magnetic Grey Tacoma TRD Sport Double Cab
    Completely Stock
    Hello everyone! I just bought a new to me Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport Double cab 4×4 in Magnetic Grey. It will eventually be my son's when he starts driving. It is a 2 owner with 157k mi on the clock. It seems to be in great shape, other than the assorted dings and "pin striping" due to its age and use. I'm somewhat obsessive about maintaining my vehicle, so, are there any specific areas I should keep an eye on? Is there a "newbs faq" stickied somewhere I should know about? Looking forward to hearing back from ya'll!!

    Welcome! I do all of my own maintenance, I found the Taco to be quite durable and easy to work on if needed.

    Thank you all so much for the kind words! @boogie3478 : I have subscribed and look forward to digging into some of those videos. @irayfz6 that was EXACTLY what I was looking for, thank you for posting it. I have a few more technical questions, but I'll work through the faqs just in case they're answered in there. Again, thank you all so much for the warm wishes!
