    Never understood the skid-plate package, when really its a flimsy piece of aluminum guarding nothing nothing more than a few inches of bumper trim. I was really hoping the extra $400.00 or whatever I spent on it would've extended it back to the transfer case, and fuel tank.

    I dislike the fact that the spare tire and the tailgate don't automatically come with locks on them, especially considering the price I paid for the truck. That's about it.

    What I Dislike in my brand new Taco 2013 4WD/DC/LB/Sport-TRD/Navigation

    1. Fog push button - It does not have indicator, you don't know if are they on/off (Toyota selling this button for 75$)
    2. Radio - you have to keep your key inside the ignition to listen to the radio. (But I build my own MOD, so now it works great without key)
    3. Rear camera - No night-mode, turns off automatically after 5 min.
    4. Door Lock - doors does not close automatically when you put to Drive gear.
    5. 120V outlet - is not working without the ACC key. (I use MOD from this forum now it works without the key).
    6. Cargo Net - SUPER small size.

    But I still happy with this truck! :D

    What do I dislike about my tacoma?

    1. Lacking power/not very responsive when you need that extra kick. I have a v6 but it shifts like grandma's toy.

    2. Too much wind noise.

    I want them to continue making regular cab trucks with:

    1. a better bench seat
    2. power mirrors, it's just a shit ton easier to adjust these with power.
    3. increase durability JUST BECAUSE

    that's it. otherwise i'm really happy with what I got, which was a bare bones truck. the bench seat not having seating positions is my only real complaint.

    A can of Copenhagen does the exact same thing:)
    I hate ones that try to do that to pumps. That's valuable time to clean out my truck.

    Have new 2013 Prerunner Auto V/6, getting knocking noise I think in lwr end or engine when accelerating. dealer says put high octane gas. Owners manual states for 87 octane. Using both & still getting knocking that wife even notices ? Would living in slightly higher elevation 1400 ft. make any difference. Any info. would be helpful. Thanx.

    Ha! First world problems. Must be rough holding a button for 3 seconds. Remember manual windows?

    As for me, there's nothing I dislike about mine. I guess one thing could be all the "rules" for all the traction/4wd modes. Has to be in 4L, has to be under a certain MPH, hold this button instead of pushing it for a different mode.... It get's confusing. I can't dislike something for not understanding it yet though.

    I've had mine since 2010 and have a few improvements.

    I would like a luxury package with heated seats and steering wheel, a moon roof, automatic climate temp control, power seats, more interior lights like on the doors, trip computer, dampered tailgate drop down like the tundra, and power rear window. Could make the truck expensive but I'd be willing to pay for it.

    I cannot see the display on the radio during the day with polarized sun glasses.

    ALL knobs and buttons need indicator lights to tell you if they are on or off.

    Lights in the bed where the 3rd brake light is.

    Front and middle D-loop tie-downs in the bed.

    Locking fuel door.

    USB and 120V AC plugs inside the cabin.

    Built in brake controller for towing like large trucks.

    Much larger backup camera screen. I only use it when backing up to a trailer and with my reader glasses on.

    250 Amp alternator to run a 1000 W inverter with out battery drain.

    Things that don't bother me:

    Ticking engine. I couldn't care less.

    I have no complains about looks. I could even use MORE chrome.

    It's interesting that some are complaining about power. I think it has more than enough. It's not a sports car but will hold it's own if needed. And this is without a SC.
