    Seems the "What DON'T you like about your Tacoma" thread really took off. So, what does everyone like about their Tacoma?

    I really like the way it rides on the highway. I'm not much of an off-road guy and I think it handles nicely.

    I like the looks.
    The performance for it's spec.
    It's utility.
    Composite bed.
    Works great as a daily, and can still take abuse under work loads.
    Virtually unlimited modding potential.
    Great aftermarket support.
    It continues to impress me on the tarmac, and off.
    It's design is simple, maintenance is a breeze...
    Coming from low cars, I can go places I couldn't even think about before...

    the fact that i have seen it last to 300k miles
    the electrical outlet in the bed
    the non breaking slider window
    the power from the v6
    the comfy seats
    the offroad capibilities
    the great starting platform for a prerunner

    I love the ride even more so since the suspension TSB. The looks are sweet, even completely stock. I can haul both of my bikes in the bed and all of the gear in the back seat so nothing gets wet when it rains :). The performance of the V6 is great, and matched with one of the best autos I have ever driven. Fuel economy, I just got 19 mpg in town :D. I have not had to work on this every weekend like I used to with the old Chevy. Oh and it let me to Tacomaworld!!

    I think the reason "don't like" threads work so well is because there's so few to list.

    If I had to write down everything I liked about my Tacoma, I'd be here all day. I suppose I'll make do with my #1 favorite thing:

    Reliability.

    I'd have to say that I love the fact that my truck is a 6-speed and still equipped with power windows, locks, and all that. Also I love the backup camera and the outlet in the bed. I love my truck in every way and will love it even more when the payments stop coming on it ;)
