Anyone drive recent model Toyota Tacomas?

I've told myself that I'm buying a pickup truck as my next vehicle just because of how convenient they are. I think I've decided on a 2012 Toyota Tacoma. I like how it looks and it has the best gas mileage of any non-hybrid truck.

Do any of you guys have problems with yours?

I've been researching used prices for 2006-2011 and god damn these things hold their value. I'm pretty sure that I'll get a better deal if i just buy new.

I want a Magnetic Gray 2.7L Prerunner with Access Cab. Sort of hard to find.

There's a 2010 for sale with bigger tires than stock and some cool black rims for $22k. Or I can get a new one stock for $25k. Haven't been able to find one with my color preference though. May have to go with White. White looks slick too.

I may decide to go V6 4x4, but I don't really see me needing it and I want the better gas mileage.

Just buy new. The rate will be lower.

FYI a total base model frontier is already an access cab pickup and is probably 4k less. They don't make em with a regular cab

In with the Tacoma. I have a 2009 with the full cab and short bed. 4x4 with the TRD package. It's been a solid truck. Previously, I had an F150, and to be honest, I liked it more. It got horrid gas mileage then, so I dumped it.

I'd go with blue or navy blue. Can't go wrong.

If you just HAVE to buy a foreign truck, the tacoma is the one to get, its still not a real work truck... but they are nice looking, especially when dressed up with a lift kit, roll bars, brush guard etc, have few problems & hold their resale/trade in value like crazy.

It's unfortunate you have cock on the brain and have to sink to that level, even to the point of lying about what I like or don't like.

But then, what should I expect from a guy who loves a company that can't do better than #3 among domestics, let alone be good enough to even sniff the farts of Honda or Toyota.

So sorry the backlash against these companies you hate never materialized.

Here you go, some facts:

link

BOSTON -

Toyota is hearing from truck owners about frames so badly rusted they can't be repaired nor replaced.

It's a problem Team 5 Investigates first uncovered last year with Tacomas. And now it appears to involve larger model Tundras as well.

Click To Comment |

"The frame is cracked," said Tim Gatzke, owner of a 2000 Toyota Tundra. "And down in the back here, the leaf springs on this side are so corroded that they're broken."

He said the frame on his truck is being eaten away by rust. Driven only 89,000 miles, it no longer holds power steering fluid.

"In order to fix it, you need a power steering rack," Gatzke said. "But the corrosion is so bad, there is nothing for it to get welded back onto the frame."

Gatzke has pretty much stopped driving his truck.

"It's aggressive corrosion that essentially makes the truck unsafe," he said. "I mean, the power steering rack at 70 mph. --- if that were to let go, that could be a really bad accident."

Bob Malone is another Tundra owner with the same complaint.

"You can see the frame rail is just orange with rust," he said.

You yourself have said how bad your last experience was with the the last GM you bought, and were proud of the fact that you cashed in on the "cash for clunkers" at the tax payers expense, to buy a foreign vehicle.

facts.

Big money puts these deals behind them, and they did it in this case.

Yeah, I hate GM. So? Any right thinking person SHOULD hate GM. Speaking of big money, it's hilarious to hear you champion GM while whining about taxpayer expense. You are one confused old man.
