    I agree with pretty much all the suggestions on here, but how about some pretty simple basic stuff that any vehicle in this price range should have...

    -a locking glove box
    -locking center console
    -heated mirrors
    -a stereo system (I know they say it comes with one, but I can barley hear it!!!)
    -the 2.7L 4 banger that they use in the Highlander (it puts out about 24 more HP)
    -The new V6 in the 4runner and FJ (why do those models get it and Tacomas don't?)

    I still would but a Tacoma over any other compact-midsize truck

    Better wheel bearings? Better frame construction and coating my carrier bearing cross member can flex if you pull on it maybe that's what causes the vibration
