    I had an o5.Issues with clutch pedal squeeking and trans coming out of gear.windshield squeeked when hot.the factory left alignment tabs under the molding,after they were removed windshield noise went away. I traded for an 09...same issue with clutch pedal,just had it fixed for the 3rd time.radio was replaced also. the 09 at least runs on regular gas. I am not sure if I will buy another Toyota product. My 1986 4x4 pickup lasted 17 years before the frame rotted out

    I have had ZERO problems with my 05, granted it only has 50k on it. But still not a problem one.

    How are you getting that kind of insane mpg with a V6 DC? I've got a 2010 V6 DC and averaging 18.6, with the stock prerunner 245 tires for now.

    I like this thread and it has been viewed a lot; can you add a poll for us to vote on the worst years?

    The general consensus is to stay away from the first year of any vehicle after a model change to allow them to work the bugs out. That being said, my 05 has 84,000 on it and it is rock solid.
