    Hey all, I am new here to the site and have decided to join up and say hello. I actually (sadly) do not yet own my own Tacoma as of yet. I currently have a Pontiac G6. So far its been a solid car, but I'm pushing 100,000 miles and I know pretty soon stuff is going to start to break. I'm really hoping to sell the Pontiac and get into a 2002-2004 Tacoma. I've always liked them and I've been doing research on how long they last and how well they work. It seems that I can get 300,000+ miles out of a Tacoma and not really have to worry too much about it breaking down. After looking around I think I'm looking for a 4wd, 4 door, 6 cylinder, manual transmission truck. Anyway, if anyone has any suggestions as to which Tacoma might be best please let me know, I'm aiming in the 12,000 price range hoping to get something under 120,000 miles. Thanks so much and I look forward to being a part of the Tacoma World!

    I've heard they are really easy to work on and maintain? I take it you all would agree? I'd want to be able to do head gaskets or other pretty intense repairs right in my driveway.

    Howdy....gotta '12 "black" base access cab tacoma a few months ago...I love it. 4-Bangers , I am here with you and love what you have been doing to those little trucks. I am sold on Toyotas and traded down in size from a 06 Tundra Limited 4wd quad cab. I miss that sweet truck, but don't miss the gas mileage. This new tacoma is perfect for a 30 minute commute to work. Plus I get to haul all I need, when I need it.
