    Greetings from windy S. TX. Just got my new Tacoma access cab w/ V6 and 6-spd with 4wd. Awesome truck with one exception...I am getting horrible gas mileage. Will post some about this in the appropriate place.

    Anyway looking forward to learning more about my truck from you guys.

    Will post up some pics soon as possible. Truck has 500 miles on it so far...I know it will get at least a little better mpg once it gets some more miles on it.

    Hailing from Corpus Christi (230 miles south of Houston on the coast). The new truck is awesome and one benefit of the lower-geared manual is towing my boat. It feels a lot stronger than my '07 with the auto did. Well anyway I am pretty happy with the truck it feels solid and is extreme high quality. This forum is cool too...thanx for the welcome.
