    This is my first non 4x4. And I haven't been in a situation to need 4x4 for years. I wheel when necessary and not for fun.

    Besides my girlfriend has 4x4.. :rolleyes:

    love my truck, has never failed me. or given me any problems. i definitely miss my benz. but you couldnt take the benz offroading.. not sure if i made the right choice trading in my paid off benz for my tacoma, making payments on it. just crossed over 100,000 miles and i still have three more years to pay off.. not sure if i made the right decision or not.
    my trucks my baby just not loving the seats they arent the best for traveling long distances.. just my opinion

    I love my 2002 4X4 taco. Is it percect no. I wish it had a solid front axle instead of IFS. But I bought it just to modify and off road. Its not my daily driver so I don't drive it all the time. But it is a solid little truck.

    pretty funny.... i traded in my 2011 Tundra CrewMax, Platinum edition...it was a beautiful truck, loaded, 5.7 V8, so much power.... and while I liked it and was 'proud' to own it, I can't honestly say i "loved it".

    i now have a 2012 DCLB 4x4, that is nowhere near as nice inside but i swear every time i sit down in the seat and drive, i smile. i don't know why but there is something about the Tacoma that is more appealing to me. my disclaimer is both trucks are really kid taxi's, not work trucks or any 4wd activity. so for what i do and need the tacoma to do, couldn't be happier!

    like others have said, not perfect but great vehicle overall. Bought new in 05 and now over 70k miles. Very little problems related to the manufacturer. Had other Toyota trucks in the past and always regretted selling after the fact.

    So much Yota I can't explain!
    YES!!! That's one of the few complaints I have about my truck. And I wish that the wipers could go a little faster than their top speed.
    Things that are "unique" about my truck that I don't like are:
    • Loose/slack seatbelts that always get caught in door
    • Fuel gauge doesn't work
    • No driver's seat headrest
    • Corner light is "popped out" becuase the guy that had it before me got it into an accident(s?)
    • Slight bogging occasionally (Bad o2 Sensor) I bought it, have yet to replace it because stuff keeps getting in my way.)

    But overall, I love my Taco. Stonewall is my first truck, and is by far the best vehicle to ever have parked in my yard. I regularly haul several hundred pounds of scrap metal (anywhere from 300-900 pounds, usually on the lighter end) with no problem, and without resting on the bump stops. I average anywhere from 22-26 MPG, depending on conditions, consistency/lack of traffic, what I am hauling, etc. (Although my MPG numbers are iffy, since I never truly know when the tank is empty.) I love Stonewall Jackson, even with all of his scratches, dents, and peeling clear coat. I'm gonna keep him until he blows up, and then I'm gonna fix him and drive him some more.

    I love my 05, but i would like to see at least the inside of the tailgate be metal. That plastic piece over three or four flimsy metal frame things (i forgot how many there are) isn't very strong. I bought mine used and he had bent it just hauling wood and i can tell when i stand on it, at 220 lbs that its not very strong. The bed can take enough for a midsize truck i guess and im sure it cuts down on mpg's, but the tailgate needs to be stronger. Also maybe the frame could be fully boxed... I haven't read any problems on TW, but i know outside our comunity some people think that the c frame is a weakness. Its not really a complain or a dislike, just something i've thought of.
    I would say for the next generation, put some technology into the engine, like cylinder shut off for example. If a dodge ram can get said 25 mpg hwy, then so should a tacoma. maybe a nice ranch trim to go with the new Tundra trim? thats probably way to expensive considering how much they already cost, but hey, they did it for the tundra...

    My next truck will be a Ford F150 Ecoboost.

    Better gas mileage is the big factor. Plus, if I were to total my truck out for whatever reason, I couldn't replace it for a reasonable amount of money that I paid for the Tacoma.
