    Oh Yeah!!!
    1380 to San Antonio and back, little under 22hrs drive one way, and a little over a month between each leg of trip. Got to say, I would have never made the staight drive if it was not for my Taco. Driven the Wifes Trailblazer on several 8 and 16 hour trips and it was painful. Traveling in my Taco was an experience worth encountering.

    Will I do it again, Hell yeah!!!:D

    While the current Taco has not seen action.

    The '01 Prerunner saw about 4 or 5 trips from Long Beach, CA to first Alhambra, MT(1X) and then Basin, Montana -- both winter and summer, and trips to Big Bear, CA

    The '94 pickup saw trips from Long Beach to Phoenix, Phoenix-to-Colorado Springs-to-Sheridan, WY-to-Jefferson County, MT back to Long Beach, and a few trips back and forth from Montana to Long Beach with my folks before it's untimely demise was met near Payson,AZ

    --- The I-15 is both a friend and an enemy. :(

    To Orlando and back: 950 miles round trip. Averaged 21mpg (good amount of local roads involved plus the truck was only 2.5 months old).

    To NJ and back: 1140 miles round trip. Averaged 23mpg up and 22mpg back (loaded with approx 500lbs of baby shower gifts).

    It really cruises on the highway, real easy to handle and passes slower vehicles with no problem.

    Sumter SC to Yuma AZ - 2200 miles one way in three days and then back again 4 weeks later. Was supposed to go to Denver, but the brother in law was being a butt... A LONG trip but it was great to see family.

    Truck rode great. Seats were comfortable and even the dogs were comfortable in the back of the cab with the seats folded down.

    Every six weeks, Columbia SC to SpringHill,FL (Clearwater) and back to see the folks. Done it once in the truck so far. Much better than the Yaris but I do miss that 47mph the little roller skate would get.

    I drove mine from western Montana to Minneapolis and back in early July. That's about 2700 miles round-trip. It was great, but there were times when I really wished that my very basic regular-cab truck had cruise-control. Other than that, no issues whatsoever.

    East TN to Dillon CO last march. From the time we were 100 mile west of Knoxville until we got to the condo, 31 hours of hell, car accident, another accident, construction, one more accident, Snow, wrecked semi on Loveland pass. The truck did awesome i'm glad I had the DC LB to carry all that gear. We will have better luck this year with all the hold ups!!
