"The only negative that I would ever give this little pickup is the fact that it rides rough. That is to be expected when you get a 1/2 ton rating in a little truck. You can't have a smooth ride and stiff enough suspension to pack the load."
"bought ext cab in '99', dealer installed ac....had 75K on it then...up to 187k in '07' I just replaced the clutch-this being the only major repair other than 4 alternators-1 starter- 3 sets of tires- 2 batteries & 1 broken leaf spring...need to remember it's not 4wd...does great off road without any MUD/SNOW/ROCKS..."
"My Tacoma PreRunner is now four years old and is just getting broken in. Just fill with gas, change the oil occasionally and go. Tows 2,500-3,000 pounds with minimal effort. Gets better fuel mileage now than ever. Never been stuck, although it's only a 2WD, even in the blizzard of 2007. The ground clearance, coupled with a few sand bags, and this truck zips through the snow like a champ. Can't say enough good things about it."
