    Exterior: I like fog lights and the shark fins. Dont like the new front, mirrors cool but I dont think it matches
    Interior: love the black carpet , I dont dig the steering wheel. I like the black consol, trim, stereo, basically everything inside expect the steering wheel.
    Loving my 2010 tacoma but wish I had thoughs new stuffs in mines.

    I like the new white backlit gauges the most. Gives the interior a clean look.

    Also, like I've said many times before, I like the new green paint that they are going to offer :D

    I dig it all. The nose will grow on everyone. I saw a silver double cab at dealer yesterday. It's really nice. I even like the chrome wheels and I hate chrome.

    Exterior makes me glad I bought the 2011. Interior I do like! Not sure but the one pic on the Toyota website looks like they may have gone to a vinyl floor? Sure wish they would take some of the interior features from the FJ and incorporate them into the Tacoma. Rubber floor, large easy to turn knobs (heating) black seat covers. Just a few things the FJ had over the Tacoma in my opinion. But I do love having a truck again!

    LOL! I agree with most, I like the interior. Not a fan of the new front end so much. It just does not look like a "truck" front end to me.

    I'm surprised SAIRS hasn't come in yet to defend it with all his might.

    I had a 2006 SR5 DBL cab, I really enjoyed that truck. Traded it in for a 2012 DBL cab TRD Sport with JBL and Entune. The new features on this truck are awesome. The front end looks great, and the "refreshed" interior is also very cool. The steering wheel is a lot nicer than my previous one. I am researching lifts right now- going to put a 3" lift and probably 285 60 18's!! The 2012's are awesome, I am extremely happy with it!

    I LOVE everything about it, even the front end! God, I'm so tired of looking at all the other previous model years.

    Likes: front end looks better IMOP
    LOVE the bluetooth stuff and iPhone controls
    LOVE the black carpet and console
    LOVE the mats and adjustable rear headsets so u can fold it down without removal
    LOVE the home controls on the mirror - garage door opener
    LOVE the bigger rear view camera
    LOVE the look of the new steering wheel
    LOVE - the retro looking guages they remind me of the 1980-83 trucks!

    Dislike:
    Feel of the new steering wheel (old one is more comfortable)

    VERY glad I bought the 2012
