    ABSOLUTELLY POSITIVE: THIS TRUCK IS NOT FOR YOU, BUD!
    PERIOD.
    DO NOT TORTURE YOURSELF (AND TRUCK) DRIVING THING YOU DON'T LIKE.
    YOU DESERVE SOMETHING BETTER THAN TACOMA.
    WHOLE BUNCH OF PICK UPS ON THE MARKET YOU CAN CHOOSE FROM.
    Try to pay closer attention to Honda Ridgeline or Ford Maverick.
    Good luck!

    The ridgeline is a interesting vehicle, quite a bit wider than the Tacoma, Honda is pretty savvy on making use of every spit. I have a long bed crew cab. I never looked at the Colorado or ford midsize trucks. Its a cool truck, I was pizzed and ready too get rid of it after the dealer deleted cruise control and said it would cost big bucks to get it back.

    You brought the wrong vehicle for what you wanted. It’s your mistake why come here and bash everyone because they don’t agree that you say these things are pieces of shit. It’s just a vehicle to be used for whatever needs you buy it for. Next time maybe do some research and make sure you get what you want instead of going on the Internet and crying about it. Have the best day ever.
    Just my 100 cents.

    Sounds like you want a full-size truck?

    Also, why on earth would you get a Viper system? Get an N2 remote start with the cell start option. You can lock the truck while its running (from your cell) and run into stores with it running and locked...do it all the time for my dog in the summer.

    You sound unhappy and irritating to me, so many things seemed you don't like... Comparing with another manufacturers and brands... Leave the Tacoma (and this forum, btw, too)
    and find harmony somewhere else!

    It was recommended but a local vendor that I trust, maybe the N2 is the schit, personally I have a phone for phoning a truck for trucking and I dont need them connected, and really dont want them connected, but some do and thats Ok, its your thing, do what you want.

    I am just having fun on Friday, I never said I dint like it, it has shortcomings, they all do, its just a chunk of metal and plastic. Toyota could have done better on some aspects. You somehow dont like the thought one would compare your pervious Tacoma to another brand... laughable.

    Yup. I drove few of them for years, it's great 4x4 thing. Planning to bring one to Canada later! Love Niva!

    Uh….from just driving it lol. You really didn’t do ANY research did ya? It’s all good though these trucks hold resale like crazy. Not being a dick, so no need to insult me. Wife has that covered.
