    hey yall, im thinking about getting a 08 v6 4x4 crewcab. right now im driving a 97 nissan pathfinder 4x4.

    all i have read about tacomas has been good.

    so i wanna hear if yall have found anything bad about them.

    i tend to be kinda hard on vehicles ive had to replace the entire frontend in the finder and replace the engine due to slamming the oilpan onto a rock and running the engine dry. didnt realize it till it was too late.

    so how tough are these trucks?

    my finder, ill miss her but i need something more reliable going to college

    forgot to add im a volunteer firefighter so the truck will still need to be able to handle some abuse. and have some spots for some strobes.

    No issues with my '05 Taco. I love it. I'd buy another in a heartbeat.

    A lot of the people on this forum have had more than one Tacoma or Toyota truck. There's a reason why we all love these trucks so much.

    Great idea for a truck. These things are really nice rigs. You can't go wrong with a yota.

    My 05 v6 DC Pre-Runner just hit 101,000 miles & still going strong. No problems at all. Still has the power it had when it was new.
