    The other guy didn't understand what a camel back was.

    I've never leaked anything in my truck - Thank Gawd. I didn't realize how stained they can get. I have seat covers on the front seats - luckily - as it looks like that's something good to have!

    the vent over the pedals hangs too low, my foot is always clipping it when i switch pedals.

    think i may be loosening it

    I've seen a lot of petty stuff mentioned. :p Here are some REAL problems:

    1. The floor mats in the back of my DC slide around and get bunched up.
    2. When I let the front seat belt buckle go, it slams against the wall and has scratched it.
    3. No RDS on the radio.
    4. Temperature gauge/compass light is too dim.
    5. Wife won't turn loose the $$$ I want to mod it.

    The fact that most American dealers won't sell to Canadians, and most Canadian dealers refuse to sell bellow MSRP. And the fact that the Regular Cab isn't available in Canada. Those probably don't apply to you though.

    Interior scratches a bit too easy. To correct small spots I have taken a butane lighter (VERY CAREFULLY mind you) set on low and just came close to the area ... looks like new.

    Perhaps the speedometer placement a little lower ... due to steering wheel placement.

    Aside from that ... can't beat it.

    oh yeah that interior plastic does nick and scratch easy- looks an ugly white
    i'll have to try the lighter method somewhere unseen.

    see, if we give it enough time we can pick our tacomas apart! :p

    1: short seat cushions, that lack thigh support.
    2: cramped foot control area, especially when you wear size 13 shoes.
    3: jiggly ride over small road imperfections(bridge decks a good example)

    4: thats all folks

    havnt read all of the replies yet but i think its stupid that they put in a temp gauge and they dont equip it with ur mileage?? so i can see the weather but i cant tell what my mpg is WEAK!

    i also wish they would have put more hooks/clips through the bed.. i had to drill my own into the frame in the front of the bed so i could tie down my dirtbike

    and last it would have been nice to put in a middle seat in the front such as dodge but i dont think thats a toyota thing... o well im comfortable :)
