    Hi guys, new member here looking to buy a new Tacoma in the next few months. I've been lurking for a while, and following the 2012 MEGA thread as new product info rolled out. I'm between a Tacoma and a 4Runner, but leaning towards the truck.

    The Taco is my nostalgic choice, I actually owned a '95 Toyota pick-up back in the day, which was before they were labeled Tacomas. I drove that truck for years during college and after. Put about 100k on that one and still miss it to this day.

    I currently have a Subaru Forester Sports XT that will be sold/traded for the Taco. Can't wait to get out of the Subie - do not recommend them.

    Look forward to hanging around and learning a thing or two - great forum!

    What's wrong with the Forester? Guys in Australia go off-road with them:
