It has an excellent safety record along you to drive confidently.

I have a 4 door Tacoma Forerunner with AT tires. My drive terrain is around town/interstate driving as well as driving on backroads and off roading (fields, dirt roads, through rivers & creeks) I never fear my truck will break down in the middle of nowhere leaving me stranded. My ride is comfortable and simple- just like I like it. For a 2009, it has up to date features to make your ride easier. Lastly and most importantly, it has excellent safety rating to keep my entire family safe.

Overall, happy with my Tacoma

I purchased my Tacoma used about two years ago. Other than the expected maintenance, I haven't had any issues. The suspension is a little stiff but that is to be expected with a truck. This is my daily driver and it's overall a comfortable ride, long distance however can be a little uncomfortable because the lack of lumbar support. The only other issue I have is the size of the bed, it is neither wide enough or long enough to transport a sheet of plywood, for example.

Dependability is the most important thing to me when talking about the Tacoma.

I have owned my Tacoma for 9 years and I love it. I have never experienced any major mechanical issues. I have just made sure that I had the recommended services performed at the appropriate intervals. We have two kids and we have never had a problem with the whole family traveling together. So, space is not an issue. I do not plan on replacing my Tacoma any time soon, but when that day comes, I will definitely be shopping for another Tacoma.
