    I've owned 16 vehicles but this is my first Tacoma and hands down my favorite. It's pretty much stock cause I just got it August 2011. It's an 01 TRD, auto, V6. My last 2 vehicles were Jeeps and I'll never own another.

    Welcome! I'm a Little interested in your experience with the Jeeps. I'm interested in getting one strictly for play no daily driving. What are the reasons you wouldn't own another one?

    Don't get me wrong, I still like them but wouldn't buy another. I had an 01 Cherokee 60th anniv. and an 02 Grand Cherokee Limited 4.7 HO. Both got horrible gas mileage and they were always in the shop for 1 thing or another. Plus, everybody has them, around Ohio and KY anyway.

    Gas mileage? Are you sure you've got the right car?

    I was getting 10mpg in my Cherokee and 12-14 in my Grand. 20 gal tank, $70-80 always filling up, had to go! Here in Cincinnati, there's a Jeep everywhere. Selling one is not easy cause a potential buyer has hundreds to choose from. I'm not knocking Wranglers or Jeeps in general, I just won't ever buy another.

    Taco's are everywhere around here, but I take that as a good thing.
