"I had a Dodge Dakota Club Cab before this and needed a larger cab. I have been very pleased with the only issues being the lack of a manual transmission offering, and the relatively poor breaking capability (you don't notice it until you drive a vehicle that brakes much better). Payload doesn't do as well as my Dakota although Toyota rates it better (I think). My personal experience is that the Dakota was better (I had a 1998). Overall, excellent acceleration performance, good mileage, and the cabin has excellent ergonomics including an outstanding back seat!"
"I have owned this vehicle for one year at the present time and have been very pleased with every aspect of it. The ride is very smooth and comfortable. The performance and reliability of Toyota speaks for its self."
"If you're looking for a half ton truck with good mileage (27 highway), reliability (Toyota), and resale (Toyota again), this one is in show-room condition. Price is reasonable, considering the low mileage (3500). You couldn't go wrong on this one."
"I have had this truck waist deep in mud, 6 feet in the air in the dunes and vertical in the canyons. I cannot get this thing stuck, believe me I seriously have tried. Ive pulled silverados and cherokees out of the dunes and towed cars, bikes, and trailers. The V6 TRD offroad with locking dif is uncompromisable. Its no audi when it comes to comfort and its no slouch either, but with this kind of platform in a small pickup, well your a fool to not enjoy the brighter side. Since brand new Im at 50,000mi and this truck has survived every bit of the torture I put it through, and Ive never even had a flat tire. No hickups no engine bumps noises or grinds, no tranny problems, nothing. And she does 110 fully loaded with cargo all the way to cali and back from phoenix. Eh yeah, it might be worth every single dollar."
