"I have owned this truck for two years now and i don't have many complaint about it. I love the way it looks and the way it rides going down the road. But my biggest complaint about the truck is the fact that it has WAY too much road noise when your going down the interstate. Toyota also didn't allow you to put in a seriousxm radio into the truck even though i have the touchscreen radio from the factory. It has to be a factory selected part. I also expected to get better mileage while going down the highway at 70 mph. But strangely when I drove to Florida and back last October i got better mileage than when i'm just driving to Houston and back. Also even though KBB says its not possible my truck has both the SR5 package and the Texas Edition package. And to any potential Toyota buyers out there I would highly recommend making sure your vehicle has the SR5 package. It has so many driver aids that you don't realize your using until your without them again."

"Bought this truck used when it was 4 months old when it had ~5K miles on it in early 2007. In 8 years and 113,000 miles, the only thing that's broken has been the alternator. Other than that, all I've had to do is routine maintenance. I'd buy another Toyota pickup in a heartbeat. They're awesome vehicles."

"I have owned my 2007 Tacoma for a couple of years now and I have thoroughly enjoyed driving it. It is a simple truck without all of the bells and whistles of a similarly sized 30,000 dollar competitor, but that is why I like it. It is an affordable, reliable, well made machine with very little in the way of corrective maintenance."

Pros: "It's fun to drive, good in the snow in 4 wheel dri"

Cons: "Not a lot of pick-up because its a 4 cylinder"

"Love this truck, awesome 4 x4 with some weight in the bed, its great in the snow, handles well. Gets great gas mileage on the highway with the cruise control package. Have not had any mechanical problems until this year, but its otherwise a very reliable, safe truck. The only downside is the 4 cylinder has no pick-up so I would recommend the standard shift model like I have to give it a little bit of get up an go!"

"We got the truck about 7 months ago. We have had to do nothing to it what so ever. It is very reliable and starts every time. The seats are not the greatest (limited adjustment features). All in all an excellent truck for under $10,000 , if you are in the market for a reliable truck for under $10k, get the Toyota Tacoma."

"One set of brakes, regular fluid changes, never left me stranded in 180000 miles. It would be insane not to purchase another one. You never see tacomas being towed home."
