    none (yet)
    I just bought a 2017 Tacoma TRD Sport with 40 miles, double cab, automatic.

    Is the low ATF fluid still a problem? I feel some very minor anomalies, nothing that seems serious, but not sure if it's the truck just breaking in, a real problem, or me being paranoid.

    Looking at a bed cover. The tri-fold from Tyger on Amazon is about $230. Is this about the best bang for the buck or does anyone have any comments?

    Also looking at floor mats. Looking at WeatherTech and Husky, which both seem to be somewhere around $200. Again, looking for best bang for the buck.

    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to the TW family!

    Everyone seems to love both Weathertech and Husky so you can't go wrong there.

    For the ATF fluid if your system has the fill and overflow plugs you could always add some fluid to see if any comes out.

    Welcome to TW!

    I'm getting Weathertech mats for mine when factory ordered Taco arrives. I'm also ordering a factory tonneau cover. Keep an eye out in the 3rd Gen Tacoma Parts Marketplace ( https://www.tacomaworld.com/forums/3rd-gen-tacomas-2016.186/ ) for mats and a cover if you're trying to keep the cost down since members will periodically sell OEM or aftermarket equipment that is still in very good shape for a discount. You'll have to be patient until you find what you want, but if the bug gets you as it does to all of us eventually, order new.

    I am a Weathertech guy. Great products. I like their rain guards as well.

    There will be a break in period so don't over analyze.
    Give it 10k or so.

    Like, so many.
    2017 fixed a lot of the first year problems. Let your truck break in. I'm not familiar with that cover, but you can't go wrong with either of those floor mats. We'll need pics, obviously.
