    Property tax?! Wtf is this "property tax"? Are you paying some sort of tax just by owning a truck?

    Hate
    the rear suspension! I bottom out f*king EVERYWHERE (soon to be fixed by a deaver leaf pack and 2.5" Kings ;)

    the fact that the ABS doesnt shut off or tone down in 4WD- put gravel or ice under your wheels and you've just added fifty feet to your stopping distance. put me right through an intersection once and has slammed me into a big rut I saw at the last second too many times to count. -very dangerous in my opinion-

    THE TRUCKS F'N MANUAL SHOWS YOU HOW TO FOLD THE SEATS FLAT. yet they simply do not. new "feature" to '13 i guess? annoying as hell.

    no locking tailgate? really now?

    and aside from bitching about that, it's the greatest damn truck out there. climbs like a goat too! the ATRAC is badass!

    This rattle in the cab when cruising about 50mph. I can't find it and it is driving me freakin nuts. My driver side leafs started squeaking today as well.

    Many states have a personal property tax on vehicles, boats, trailers, etc....

    California has a "Vehicle Licensing Fee in lieu of a Personal Property Tax"... because an actual tax has to pass by a 2/3rds vote.

    I dunno about all you guys and girls, :D but I'm coming over from THREE Rav4 vehicles (2000, 2003, and 2008).

    I'm driving a 2007 2.7L Standard pkg, 5 spd manual, black bumpers, grill and now; black painted steel factory rims. I'm just happy to have a Tacoma to haul yard waste and do all my dump runs and errands.

    Yeah, I could search forever to find faults, but frankly, I would rather be grateful that my kids have left home to build up their own lives and I can happily trade in the mini-van and Rav4 babies, now I'm just so happy to have a 'Yoda truck once again. :)

    Just my 0.02 after tax cents!

    Cheers all!

    I'm on my second tacoma. First was 1999 that I bought new and modded with pretty much everything at one time or another for 14 years. Toyota bought it back due to frame rust. New tacoma is exact same truck down to the black color with alpine nav/dvd, tint, de-badged, and softopper, so far.
    Why o why won't Toyota put a six banger in the regular cab? Dumb!
