Iím considering downsizing to a new Tacoma from a full-size not for miledge but just for a smaller truck. Like a dblcab long bed and put a shell on the back. I hear they hold their value very well.

I've had 3 Dakotas over time and they were all good. ANY 4X4 will get you about 20 MPG any more is usually BS. I have a Tacoma now and it's a awesome truck. 4 LTR V-6 double cab 4X4, great truck and easy to park and fits into the garage with no problem.

Call what you want I know, it got an average of 25 MPG at 80 mph on the interstate the 5 speed makes the difference.

like i said I have a 2 Wheel drive that makes a huge difference. My son in law traded his FX4 ranger 4 wheel drive for a full size because the full size got better mileage.

I bought a 2012 Tacoma Crew Cab 4x4 this past spring. Always wanted one. Mine has a 6 speed standard. Nothing special on fuel. I find Toyota quality in the little things better. Handsfree, etc. not as user friendly as I would like. Like the size for when we have to go to the city for appointments and such, smaller truck is much easier for parking. Not sure my next vehicle will be a smaller truck but would like to keep this one when its paid off as a nice run around.

I am considering a 2017 Tacoma dbl cab long bed. Does anybody have any first hand experience with these? Pro’s/Con’s? Not sure if I need a full-size. Gonna use it as a daily driver and to the lake on weekends. Thx.

There are lots of variables out there. My suggestion is to pick the one that best suits your needs and lifestyle and try it out.

There are lots of brand loyalists and we all have our reasons. Those that provide some well thought reasoning with some solid stats to back it up are probably a good source of info. Personal likes / dislikes are not in that category in my opinion.

Best of luck with what ever you choose !!

Well it will be the Tacoma if I do decide. I like to hunt and ice fish and haul stuff to the lake. Just concerned if it will have enough room.

I priced out the Tacoma and the Colorado a few months ago, and the Toyota was about $13,000 more with similar equipment.

For what it’s worth and things may have changed I have worked with three different guys that had their Tacoma’s bought back for rusty frames in Manitoba. This last guy just recently had a different situation and they changed his frame! Yup swapped everything over to a new frame. Not sure on the years but two were earlier in the 2000’s so the metal may have changed since then.
But good on them for following up with the warranty.

you are 100% right on that one.
Its pretty well know and Toyata has been paying out lawsuits on it.
The 2005 - 2010 Tacoma's (affected Tundras as well but for different years) had a huge problem with some saying 1/2 will fail inspections depending on where they are being used.
If affected basically they have 0 value as cost of repair is very large.
