    Tacomas are nice, gas mileage leaves a little to be desired, hwy is only 21-22mpg. If you get a prerunner it may be a little better though.

    I just really like the way our T100 has held up, my only complaint is the seatbelts dont retract, other than that I can change the plugs and oil without having to take the engine out, hell I even got the starter out and fixed the solinoid twice. Are the newer ones any different????

    Up to 04 models, they are relatively "user friendly". Oil filter is a PITA, thats it. I know nothing of the newer styles though, drove one and didnt like it.

    The tacoma is supposed to be the "small" truck, it felt too big for me and the wife. It felt like it lacked in power compared to her 04. The front end is pretty either.

    I have a friend with a '06 4 dr 4wd tacome and it is a great truck. I don't know about working on it, but it is very nice to ride in/drive.

    My brother has an 04 4dr Tacoma and really seems to like it. I was gonna buy one in 05 but I went for the Dakota instead. I bought it based purely on the fact that I got a much better deal and a lot better warranty. For what it's worth I got 40k on it and absolutely zero problems with it, I am quite impressed with the quality of it and how solid it feels...........
