    With Smitty banned I figure now is as good of a time as any to start this thread. I fing love my third gen. I loved my second gen, I loved my first gen the most, and I loved my 86 Toyota as well. All these trucks have had issues in fact my 86 left me stranded many times.

    With the internet these days we all become hypochondriacs for every little rattle or vibration. It makes us hate our trucks. On top of that Toyota has a reputation of being a great truck. So everyone expects it to be perfect. There is no perfect truck.

    If there was no Tacomaworld how many would have even noticed the "problems" they have? Look at the diff threads. I bet half of the people with leaking diffs would have never even crawled under their truck to notice the seepage if not for TW.

    I am a Toyota fan boy and after 150000 miles I will pass judgement on this truck. Not before then.

    Why did you have to wait for Smitty to be banded for this?

    Am also taco fan. Most fun favorite truck #1. Tacoma owner for 13 years now.

    What led to Smitty being banned? I thought he was the kermudgeny old uncle who was hard to get along with but always had decent advice? Fill me in on the gossip.

    I love gossip.

    Since you mentioned him, I can't help but think you're baiting him knowing he's only out 3 days and soon returning...???

    I'm with ya'. Toyota produces a solid product. I am guilty of occasionally "buying in" to the latest Tacoma glitch (which always turns out to be nothing).

    I'm cool with Smitty. Just being a wise ass by tagging him as he has become the voice of Tacomas lack of quality.

    Love the entire post, except for the Smitty part, could have kept that on the downlow a little longer. He got a short term sentence, and I fully expect you to get put on the same list because you posted about him. Sorry but shame, some things are best kept quiet.
    You're pushing it man...

    For the record. I'm not taking a shot at Smitty. For God's sake.

    Toyota is their own voice quiet well recently. It's not smittys fault they give him material.

    Oh so it's not a perm ban? That's good. I enjoy his particular brand of knowledgeable "shit down your neck with facts"

    In fairness, he did so with a level of drama a preteen could appreciate, and he didn't like it when people pushed back.

    Can't say I'm a fan boy, but I'm loving my Tacoma so far. This is the first Tacoma I've ever owned (only had a pre-Tacoma Toyota pickup). Early 90's model. That thing was solid. I hope this truck works out great, but with only 1,500 miles, it's too early to know.

    :fingerscrossed:

    It's not at least from my understanding.

    And honestly smitty and the like add value to TW IMHO by balancing out the crowd drinking the TM kool-aid.
