    Thought they looked cool, Tacoma performance, have only ever owned Toyota/Lexus. Cheaper than a Mercedes.

    Toyota is the most well made truck on the road. They hold their value and will run much longer without significant problems vs the others on the road. A loaded 4X4 Taco will be cheaper and last longer than Ford, Chevy, or Dodge any day.

    Change the oil and take care of her and she will not fail you

    I've liked them since the 2nd gen came out. Only midsize truck I really liked. Did ponder the Frontier for a long time, and that would have been my second choice. Also looked heavily into an Xterra but decided I'd rather have the utility of the bed.

    i feel like the taco was really the only serious choice for me. i needed the utility of a 4 dr pickup for home projects and also hauling my kids around when necessary, but didn't want a full size pickup - too expensive, crappy gas mileage. my wife had a nissan that was a real POS, so a frontier was out...and the chevy colorado i looked at, quality wasn't there. once i found the taco, i just checked off all the boxes, it was a perfect fit.

    Many many reasons. Probably the most obvious is because it looks the best. You know a truck has a cool design when Toyota keeps it the same for 7 years and counting.
