After owning 8 trucks over 12 years with the typical sad dissappointments from Ford (F150's and Rangers) and Gm (Silerados and Sierras) (Break downs, poor construction and yes the horrible resale values after 50,000 miles, so will never consider what has become only American "lables" not actual good vehicles) but back in 2006 I decided to make a change and bought a Tacoma double cab with the short bed. I loved that truck, never a glitch, not a ping, issue or dissappointment. Wanting a change of color and for no other reason I decided to trade it in with having 279,000 miles yes 279,000 miles I paid $26,000 when I bought it in 2006 and on paper for a trade in I got $14,800 toward another new Tacoma double cab again with the Sport TRD but with the long bed (which I recommend now having one) paid 30,295 before trade in was figued and I can honestly say still no complaints at all. Gas mileage is consistent at 17-18 regular driving and I managed to get 23-24 on long trips, accomplished by not going over the speed limit. I get great use out of this truck, tow my camper which weighs just under 6000 lbs without any complaints. 4x4 is great in the snow, and it is practical to be my only vehicle with the 4 doors. Again is a great vehicle, and after all the nightmares with my previous trucks, I can say the past 6 years beginning with my first Tacoma and now in my second I have had NO headaches....read morehide

- The Lexus of mid-size trucks, versatile long bed, agressive new styling

Just traded my 09 Tacoma 4cyl/ 5 speed man 4x4 SR5 Access Cab for a 2012 Double Cab V6 4x4 SR5 longbed 5 speed auto with Toyota's great 2.9% financing. The Tacoma is not cheap, at least not when you get up into the larger double cab models. One thing to shop for when you are looking at a 2012 Tacoma is to avoid the TRD off road or TRD Sport packages which can tack on upwards of $5500 to the already 30K base price for the Double cab 4x4s. The TRD stickers look nice and a lot of Tundras and Tacomas are sold with these packages, its unfortunate because they offer nothing useful except for perhaps the EnTune entertainment pkg. Look for the SR5 package that includes 16" alloys, the upgraded audio system with iPod interface and Bluetooth and tow package and you have an awesome package that saves you about $4000 over a TRD model.
For 2012 the Tacoma has a new look up front but the read stays the same. New more agressive headlight/ grille and bumper assembly as well as fog lamp housings make this thing look lean, mean and considerably more aerodynamic than than the 2011. Inside the basic dash layout is the same but with upgraded audio systems, available NAV, a new steering wheel with integrated controls for the audio system as well as Bluetooth. The 4.0L V6 is silky smooth while not a hot-rod engine it pulls strong and shifts perfectly. The 5-speed auto operates like something out of a Lexus....read morehide
