    Anyone want to speculate if the new mirrors with turn signal lights will match up with my '11 ?

    Also, I'm kind of glad I bought mine when I did. I like the sunglasses holder. :)

    cause he bought a 2010 model and has put some money in it. whippers one of the most active naysayers on there being any changes to the 2012 tacoma. Id be pretty pissed if I bought a new truck only to have it replaced with better features a short time later.

    No I really don't care about the super cool upcoming 3rd gen that is supposed to cure cancer or so it seems. My truck is perfectly fine for me and I will probably never buy another Tacoma. I just think people are retarded with all the 3rd gen info. Why not wait to see what it has when it is for sale at the dealer?

    I'm with you on this one. There is plenty of speculation, some of it may be true, some of it may not. Things are always changing. There will be an even BETTER one a few years after that one.

    But for now, I love the truck I have, it serves me well and I have no complaints whatsoever. So why would I even need to look elsewhere? :)

    Definitely some interesting and also some unfortunate changes. For one they eliminated the lid on the rear console box. I don't get that at all. Just turns it into a big dirt catcher. The FJ center console doesn't have a lid either. Weird.

    Also if what Toyota is calling "piano black" is the same as what the electronics industry calls "piano black" it's a terrible choice for a truck. Basically it's high gloss black plastic, and it's one of the easiest to scratch materials in the world.

    Also interesting that they eliminated the subwoofer from the TRD Offroad package in the Access Cab. Probably makes the stock stereo pretty worthless then. Surprised that the eliminated it from what is essentially their top package in the AC.

    As for interesting, I think the black carpeting is nice. Would love to see the (very) dark charcoal FJ seats in the Tacoma as well .. very nice color and fabric.

    And note that under "double cab v6" it says "manual transmission now available in A-Suffix configuration". Wonder if that's a DC longbed.

    On another note, it's good to see them keep most of the mechanical the same for another year .. means a better (read: cheaper) used parts market in the future. One of the reasons why old Toyotas are so valuable is because parts are so plentiful and cheap. The more years Toyota keeps the engines and trannys the same, the better for the future.

    I didn't know what the "A-suffix" was...I hope you're wrong though :( That unto itself would be reason enough for me to trade in for one.

    no you don't. otherwise you wouldn't be participating in every 3rd gen forum. it's completely normal for people to be interested in upcoming changes to the tacoma, just as you are.

    Looks like we have a mind reader...kinda hard to miss all the 3rd gen threads when they are all over the front page so I figure why not post my piece.

    When and if it does change I will read the real specs on Toyota.com. If there are changes then cool. If the truck remains the same then cool. Either way it doesn't do anything for me.

    ah, i see... just so many topics on the front page that you inadvertantly end up on most, if not all, the 3rd gen topics... just by accident.

    Me thinks that you really do care, and you're just trying to play it off in a cool fashion.

    If you really didn't give a rat's patootie about the changes (or lack thereof) then why do you make your opinion on the matter so known?
