Editor's Overview

The Toyota Tacoma is the clear sales leader in the midsize-truck market in the U.S., thanks to a reputation built over decades on a foundation of excellent capability, reliability and an inherent tough-as-nails demeanor. This year, Toyota adds the Tacoma TRD Pro back to the lineup, and with additional off-road capability built in, it's the Tacoma for serious off-road enthusiasts.

I love my 2017 Toyota Tacoma.

The only issue I have had with my Toyota Tacoma is a recall on an a/c part. All I had to do, though, was take it to the dealership, and they fixed it right away. Other than that, I am 100 percent happy with my vehicle. It is sturdy and safe, and it gets surprisingly good gas mileage for its size. There is plenty of room for the driver and four more passengers. It is easy to clean, and the bed is easily accessible. I am leasing it, but I will buy it after the lease is up.

Very reliable and works well as both a work and family vehicle.

I use my truck for both work and transportation. I own rental properties and having the bed helps with carrying tools and supplies when I need to work at one of the priorities. While I wish the bed were a little longer, having the extended cab for room for my kids makes it worthwhile. The only other drawback to the Tacoma is the gas mileage it gets. It is somewhere in the 17 mph range, wish that was a little higher given the price of gas today.

I like its size and maneuverability. I like that it gets decent gas mileage. The interior is very comfortable on long trips. I do not like the headlights because they don't shine out to the side at all, I cannot see what I am turning into in the dark. I do not like the windshield wipers on my model because there are only two speeds and a manual switch, both settings are too fast if it is not raining very hard.
