    What is yours?

    Maybe if you read the original post, you would understand the intent of the post.

    After reading the most current 4Runner versus Tacoma thread, the same issues/complaints seem to arise. I am curious as to what people that do own/have owned think about the differences.

    For whatever reason certain people on the forum either feel defensive, confrontational, or just like to bitch and whine, it's obvious that trying to have any semblance of a rational discussion is a real challenge for some.

    I'll play. I haven't owned both but my plan was to buy a 2nd gen, so I did a LOT of test driving. I'm a manual transmission guy and one thing I've found in my test driving is that all of the 2nd gens that I drove, including a friend's that I borrowed for a few weeks, had the sloppiest shifters that I've ever felt. I hated that. Then I test drove a 3rd gen and loved the truck. Once I realized that the price for a super clean fully optioned 2nd gen and a new 3rd gen were not all that far apart, the decision was made.

    Who taught you how to drive. My daily commute I touch 100mph with fast flowing traffic.

    My 2nd gen with 235hp (4.0) had the growl but didn’t just walk away.
    Just saying!

    Also turn off the traction control and throttle it.
