Pros: engine performance
Cons: standard sound system, hard plastic
Advice: if you are in the market for a midsize this should be on the very short list.I have owned three toyota tacomas and fully expected to buy the o5 taco. Then I test drove the taco trd pre- runner and the fronty le. In my opinion it was a no brainer the fronty just handled better and rode better with more power on 87 octane compared to prem in the taco. Then I find out about the early problems with the taco composite bed and 4.0 engine problems in the 4 runner.I like the taco interior better but the fronty interior is much improved. The engine is a proven design and runs like a scalded dog.
Pros: Performance and 6 speed tranny
Cons: I could not buy it today
Advice: Check this truck outThis truck is fast and powerful. 6 speed tranny is a major Improvement. Very solid feel and handling for a 4x4. Comes with a spray in liner and a tie down system. Overall, very impressive. A lot of bang for the buck. Has most of the bells and whistles you will ever need.
