"After 3 cars and an SUV, I realized how much I missed driving a truck. After comparing the GMC/Chevrolet offering, (I work for a store that has a GMC Franchise)and realizing how the incentives didn't come close to what Toyota was offering, not to mention the reliability, I decided on the Tacoma PreRunner V6 with the TRD Off Road Package. This is my first Toyota product, and I could not have been more pleased with the truck. The ride is smooth, considering it is a truck. The other reviewers who chastise the wind noise and the ride need to realize: IT IS A TRUCK YOU BOUGHT! If you wanted a Lexus, then you should have bought it instead! I also like the layout of everything, not to mention the simplicity of the interior. The Entune system works well and is easy to use. It will even display and read my iPhone texts, which few vehicles will. The seats are comfortable, even on longer trips (I've taken it on 3-4 trips of 2+ hours). Storage abounds in the inside and out, especially behind and below the rear seats. Speaking of the rear seats, I have more passenger room in the backseat than in my previous vehicle, a Mazda 3 hatchback. I opted for the 5' bed, which I don't use it very often, but it is big enough for when I do. The backup camera is a great thing to have, especially when hooking up to a trailer, and the scope of it allows you to see pretty well when backing up around another vehicle. I love the rugged looks of the TRD Off Road package, which is why I opted for it, but having the Limited Slip Differential will come in handy, which is another reason why I opted for the PreRunner. We get some snow here, but not enough to warrant the cost and insurance for the 4WD. I look forward to many good years and memories with this truck."
