I'm sure glad Toyota sold you that rig and not me. I've not experienced a single.one of those issues on any of the many I've bought over the last 30 years. Over a million miles and a lot of them hard miles, and none of those issues you had. Even have some factory wheels with over 400K on em that that only show signs of rocks I've hit and stains from the grime they put on the roads in the winter since I never wash em that time of year. I did break a belt one time but that was a simple fix.
You must have spent a lot of time on that!

You didn't even read these, did you?
How much time did you spend on Tacomaworld to understand how lame Tacomas are?

I feel bad for the OP, and anybody else who wants to participate in nearly any conversation relating to Toyotas.  OP was just looking for a conversation about option packages, yet @thinkingman and others rang the doorbell and delivered yet another flaming bag on this thread's porch.

You're not accomplishing what you think you are, @thinkingman.
At this point, you're basically ruining every toyota-related thread just to make yourself feel better.  Pretty rude, IMHO.

Given 7 pages, that happens with almost anything. I think the OP got some good opinions/experiences too.
Kindly do not attempt to cloud the issue with too many facts.

Yes...I have some regret for hijacking the post but then I imagine how bad would I feel if the fanbois laid it on with how amazing Toyota cars are and the OP spend $44000 to find out the reality is far different?
I find talking about Toyota trucks is like arguing with Libs on a CNN thread....They're all so righteous in spite of the  facts.
I'll send the OP a PM with some factual data regarding other vehicles to purchase.

To the op, I've had a tacoma for 20 years this year and other than normal maintenance, I've had to replace the starter and a clutch master cylinder and nothing else. It's the third toyota I have owned and all of them have been nothing short of very reliable.  :twocents:

My gas tank hinge rusted out, it does get bad mileage but I have a lift and tires, Iíve replaced two water pumps and Iím at 200k. Still has taking a beating and is still going. I will get a full size next go around though. Need the space for the fam.

Passion, loyalty and commitment.......this thread is cool and informative. I'm taking notes before heading to the "stealership".....fun stuff.

7 pages and  I can't believe no one has mentioned an el camino yet. It checks all the boxes.

Personally I wouldn't waste money on a new Tacoma until the next gen model comes out with a motor with some power. I had a 2017 with the 3.5 and hated it. Got rid of it after a few months. It has more peak power than the 4.0, but less usable power down low. Should have just put the 4Runner's 4.0 in it and called it good.

The new model is supposed to have a turbo 2.7, I would just stick with the 4.0 2nd gen and drive it to 500k
