    Pleasant surprise
    Jan 07, 2024

    My 2003 Toyota Tacoma 3.4L V6 was a pleasant surprise for me because I didn't think I would like it as much as I have so far. We all know that Toyota is known for having reliable cars and good on gas well this truck fits both of those characteristics. I have 200,000 miles on it & have kept up with all the maintenance & it's been a great car to me. I'm not too crazy about the suspension but what do you want from a truck? It's going to drive like a truck not a luxury vehicle.
