    Hey everyone. I'm a new Product Advisor in training at a Toyota Dealership on Vancouver Island.

    We're having a competition to see who can come up with the most and greatest reasons why owning a Tacoma is so great!

    So please post your personal top 10 reasons. Pictures and videos are welcome too.

    Thanks a lot everyone. :D

    1. Resale value
    2. Reliability
    3. Styling
    4. Value. I actually seriously considered a Ford F150 with Ecoboost V6, but it would have cost me 6-8000 more for the same level of comfort, options, etc. I was even looking at left over 2011 models.
    5. Fits the need for a tough mid size pickup.

    BTW, I'm on my 5th Tacoma and 9th Toyota pickup, if you count and '86 4Runner.

    Not thinking of Oz specifically, but on on a zombie apocalypse theme.. :D

    1. Fuel economy for extended zombie searches.
    2. Passenger capacity to transport the entire zombie response team.
    3. Comfort while riding around during those searches.
    4. Style for looking good while searching.
    5. Cargo capacity to carry enough weapons and ammunition to kick zombie butt.
    6. Performance to escape any zombies remaining after that ammunition runs out.
    7. Reliability to keep going while excaping.
    8. Toughness to handle minor dings caused by zombies which get too close.
    9. Ground clearance to pass over any zombie remains in the vehicle's path.
    10. Off-Road abilities to bypass zombie hoards blocking the roadways.

    That was cool, but IMHO the submerging it in the English Channel and beating it up with a wrecking ball was better.
