I like the Tacoma's new and old you have to work pretty hard to destroy one. My Dad has a Tundra and loves it, they are good trucks I just hate the way they look. Btw they wheel great, I lifted them and SAS'ed them tons of fun in a small package.

My dad has a 08 tundra and he loves it. The only complaint that he has is that the A/C motor is not very strong, and the center console is way to big. He doesnt get the best fuel mileage and the fuel tank is pretty small. But we have put 78k miles on it in under 2 years and it is a runner.

It's funny because believe it or not the Fords, Chevys & Dodges all do the same thing, just at a much higher frequency, higher than the road course was able to excite at the speed they drove across it.

Just traded my 06 tacoma for a 10 Tundra about 4 months ago. The tacoma was nice but so far i'm lovin the tundra. My dads gotta f150 and after driving my truck we both decided the tundra is way better. If you're gonna get one go with the 5.7 though, i drove that and the 4.6. Trust me, you wont be dissapointed with the 5.7 for a little more money. I dunno if they still have the 0% financing but that was nice from toyota also.

I have a 2002 Tundra 4x4 that I bought new in 2002 and I recently bought a new 2009 Tacoma 4x4 double cab with long bed. My Tundra is my hunting and fishing vehicle. I have taken my Tundra over every kind of off road terraine imaginable without problems. The Tundra has always been a dependable truck. The only problem I have had with it was the oxygen sensors which I replaced.
I havent taken my new Tacoma off road yet but am sure it will perform well as it is the TRD off road edition. I have pulled my boat with the new Tacoma (my boat weighs around 3,500 to 4,000lbs) and the Tacoma pulls it like there is nothing behind me.
Over the years I have had 4 Toyota trucks and one 4runner all 4x4's and all were dependable vehicles with almost zero problems.

Have an 06 double cab tundra and think love the truck. It can't go through mud like my 2000 tacoma but it rides very well. The truck is a little underpowered if your going to haul much. The wind noise and rattles are minimal. Have had a couple O2 sensors go out on the tacoma and tundra. Good trucks, will keep the 06 for another 8-10 years hopefully.

i've got an '02 extended cab tacoma. 4X4 TRD SR5. I've had that biatch burried up to the drive shaft in soup. push the rear diff lock button, dropped her in 4 low, and walked right out. 135,000 and going, and the only thing she needs right now is tires. i have tried to break that truck. accidently hit a rut head on at 30 mph. same thing, 4 low, lock the rear diff, and backed right out. the bed did ding the cab a little, but after i had it inspected, no frame issues at all. my wife wants me to trade it in for a tundra. f that. i'm saving the tacoma for my first born and just buying a tundra.

Toyota trucks are the most dependable on the road. I have had 4 in a row both Tundras and Tacomas - had 1 major problem with a Tundra in which the transmission had to be replaced- my extended warrenty had just expired but Toyota Corp paid for it (because I am such a good customer, I have bought 6 new Toyotas from the same dealer, 4 of them being trucks). Currently have a 2009 Tacoma double cab 4x4, have taken it into some unbelievable places, it always gets me there and back. I am not saying anything negitive about other trucks but for dependability you just cant beat a Toyota. Since my post last year I sold myTundra for $9500 earlier this year to a friend which is darn good price for a 9 year old truck and my friend has put another 20000 plus miles on it trouble free. (he was aware that the trans was replaced)
