Need opinions re purchase 2006 - 2010 Toyota Tacoma

    undermoneyed [OP] aka Alley Opp,

    Jan 7, 2012
    First Name:
    B.C., Canada
    Tacoma TRD
    totally stock
    My present truck is a 1976 Ford supercab 4x4 (/76 body on a /79 chassis), I've had everything rebuilt (engine, trans, transfer case, rear end) about 10 years ago. There's about 50,000 miles on the rebuild. The truck is starting to show some rust but the running gear is going strong. The gas mileage sucks but I don't put that many miles on it per year so it's not killing me financially. I'm considering selling the Ford because its turning radius makes it a PITA to back the boat into the carport and definitely a challenge to find a parking spot on any busy street. The Tacoma Access Cab wheelbase is 3 feet shorter than my Ford's.
    I'm thinking of buying a 2006 to 2010 Toyota Tacoma TRD, with maybe 30,000 miles on it. This truck will remain totally stock, I don't intend to lift it. It will be used primarily for towing a boat of about 4500 lbs and for general transportation (maybe 5000 miles per year) plus getting onto a lot of logging roads but it won't be in 4 wheel drive more than maybe 5% of the time if that.
    Need opinions regarding reliability of 2006 to 2010 Tacomas. Do these trucks generally hold up well? Do these trucks have major/minor problems with reliability? What sorts of problems, if any, are are you having?
    Please tell me if you've been happy with your Tacoma and how many trouble free miles it's traveled.
    Any input will be much appreciated.
    Thanks in advance
