"New York foir me is Western New York, complete with Buffalo winter and Lake Effect snow storms. This truck is excellent in deep snpow, hard pack snow, up snow covered hills. I just purchased this vehicle in February, so no ratings yet on quality/reliability. This is my third Tacoma. First was a 4 cyl manual 2WD, then a 4 cyl auto 4WD now I finally have the truck I wanted in the first place - 6 cyl 4WD auto. This truck is nicely appointed (although the radio seems overly complicated to an old guy like me (57). It has more power than the 4 cyl, rides better, but does not get great gas mileage. But I live 5 miles from work and don't drive a lot so this is OK with me. The Tacoma is a compromise between a "real' (large) truck and no truck at all. Wife can drive this easily and with the towing package it will do all that I need. I recommend WeatherTeck floor mats (actually for any new vehicle) for the protection they provide. Truck is low maintenenace and I plan to keep until it dies (or I do)."

"My 2007 Tacoma was purchased as a tow vehicle for our travel trailer...it has a tow limit rating of 6400 lbs. We currently are towing an RV that weighs about 4400 lbs loaded to travel. This is perhaps the most reliable vehicle I've owned (driving 53 years!). We've towed to south to Key West, Florida and as far west as Portland, OR. No problems. Overall MPG without a tow has been about 17.5. Towing MPG averages from 9.9 to about 10.9, depending on the terrain. Best MPG when towing is at about 62 MPH. A reasonably comfortable and spacious mid-sized truck."
