    I don't have a Tacoma, but a Highlander and have been very satisfied.

    Looking the Tacoma up on the reviews at Edmunds.com and it is looking good too.

    2008 model: 5 consumers rate a 9 (probably too early to have many reviewers in there)
    2007 model: 67 consumers rate a 9 (editor gives 8)
    2006 model: 176 consumers rate a 9.1 (editor gives 8)
    2005 model: 234 consumers rate a 9.2

    It seems to be a well liked vehicle by owners.

    As nuch as I love Ford trucks, I have to say that I have never met a Tacoma owner who had anything but high praise for the truck.

    My dad just got one not too long ago. I've never driven it, though he seems to like it.

    What sells me on cars is the dealerships. I had a really bad experience with nissan ( i had an 01 frontier) and dumped it for my acura. Now, I love my car, but it doesnt fit my lifestyle at all. The dealer here was really good. Infact, aside from my acura dealerit was the best experience i've had at a dealer. the salesman took me through the whole dealership, showed me his master tech list ( 87% of them are mster techs) Showed me the innerworkings of the dealership. He flat out said, I want your buisness, and your friends too, and i'll do what it takes to get it. In ten years of this dealership being around, they won 9 presidents awards for customer service. ( I guess thats a big deal, since other dealerships have been around 5 times as long and only won one). Then the sales manager came up to me ( and i'm thinking, oh boy, here he comes to muscle me into a deal). He didnt say a word about it. He just said, thank you for coming in, I appreciate you coming to see us, is there any questions I can help you with that the salesman wasn't ale to anwser for you? my dealership prides itself on service, and I want you here for the rest of your life. We offer free oil changes for the life of your car, along with free batteries AND TIRES for as long as you own the car. I was shocked. He gave me a written price for the car, showed me the invioce price, and told me to check other dealerships, but that he thinks I'd come back to him after I saw what others offered. It was by far the, aside from my acura dealership, the best car buying experience i've had. I have already checked with other toyota dealerships, and none so far have been up to par with this guy. I guess we'll see what happens...

    Have a 1998 which is used as a delivery vehicle for my business. Close to 300,000 miles now. Very few problems. Probably the best delivery truck we've had in 26 years. I can't really address the ride quality or other comfort issues, as I haven't driven it much myself. Also can't speak to whether the newer models have the same dependabity, but I would certainly be willing to buy a another, newer one (we never buy brand new trucks, not economically justified for our type of use)

    Back in Kentucky I used to go off roading with a couple people who drove Tacomas. They're strong trucks and very capable off road just bone stock. A very little bit of modification (small lift and maybe a locker) and they're ready for some tough trails.

    Wait until my son gets home...I'll have him give a testimonial.

    He was driving his Toyota Tacoma and collided with a full-sized pickup that ran a stop sign.

    His truck rolled twice.

    He got out with the help of a bystander and walked away. No injuries.

    His Tacoma was totalled.

    We bought another Tacoma, and that's what he's driving now.

    The locking rear diff is an excellent option. It's standard on the TRD package.

    We have easily handled trails that most thought could only be traversed by 4-wheel drive. We would exit a trail, and onlookers couldn't believe that it was a 2WD.

    In our off road adventures, we have helped extract two four wheel drives that had become stuck.

    It's a darn good little truck!

    good to hear people like it. I'm pretty excited about it. I'm gonna get the double cab, reg bed 4x4 sport package. It was listed hear at just under 30. They offered me 27600. Plus they give free oil changes, batteries and tires for the life of the truck. I like how much storage the truck has inside, and I like all the little storage in the bed sides and 400w outlet in the bed. hopefully this will work out..

    Hmm, free tires, eh? Suddenly, four wheel burnouts got cheaper...
