Where's The Love, 05 Taco???

Okay I know it's a new model, but damb! Some of the posts out there are negitive on the 05. Like This is the worst truck Toyota ever put out!
Yes it's got it's flaws, but all of them do! All trucks and cars have flaws,
hell you drive down dirt roads you get nicked up paint! You test the limits of your tail gate and you'll find them! If you're looking for a new truck that has not a flaw, then look in happy land where nothing is wrong ever!!!!

I've had my 05 Taco black reg cab 4 x 4 and it's got 5,000 on it, no problems yet; only paint chiping it has is where a brat neIGborhood kid egg it. Got out the touch up paint; then polishing compound to buff it , no more chip!!!!


WhinE, whinE, whinE, It's not like mY 90's/00's Taco!!
Right it's an 2005!!!!!!!!!!!!
get over it they changed!!!!

Now are you happy!

Repent now, when we come for you there will be no chance. God forgives, we set up the meeting USARMY
05 DC TRD Off Road, Speedway Blue, Bilstein adjustable 5100s@1.75 in front w/timberens and TSB leaf/5100's out back with airlift airbags. 265/75R16 BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO

Do some research. Then you'll know why. Its not hated, just disliked. If you want to lend credit to your cause, at least take the time to use spell check.

Learn to spell. Also, Tacoma's have only been around since 1995.5. Before that was the pickup.

1. WTF are you?

2. Search n00b. Add to one of the other posts exactly like this, there is no need to create another one.

3. If you don't like other people's opinions about your truck, find another messageboard. It's your truck, who cares what other people think about it.

Well I love this truck. Anyone who does not has not driven one. A truck is a machine and like women no machine is perfect. I personally wanted a Rolls Royce, Ferarri, Mercedes, BMW Range rover, McClaeran, 4X4 but I could not find one for under $500,000. Since my budget was $25,000 I had to settle for a V6 pre runner with LSD Package 8 with a Leather interior. I love the power, the engine, the transmission, the interior room, the seats. The dash is like that wort on you ladies but. You have to take the good with the bad. The interior room and doors storage. I don't care about a perfect bed. If I am hauling something big I hook on a trailer, 6500lb towing. I can remember dinging the heck out of metal beds and their side walls. Can you push it off a cliff and expect no dings, get real only in commercials. I get the same mph as on my 2001 and I travel in more style and comfort. You guys can whine and cry but the consumer says this is one darn good truck and they are voting with their dollars.

Maybe you should check the 2005 taco SAS thread. Anything that takes to an SAS better than last years model should recieve at least a luke warm welcome. I guess it all comes down to the fact that nobody likes change. *shrug* Just one favor, could we please stop comparing it to that annemic I-5 Colorado? If you want to dis it at least compare it something similiar, and the closest thing on the market to it is the uglier than my ex-wife Frontier. But thats my 2 cents.

I dont give a damn if people dont like my truck. They dont give a damn if I like my truck. Its a win-win situation.

Get over it. Look, the 05 is great and all, but how many 05 owners out there are actually here because they want to wheel their truck? Cars and trucks today are rarely sold based upon how the truck performs, instead it's all about it's looks/presence/attitude. I'm sure most Moms will feel great while they are cruising in their 4x4 to drop their kids off at school, but lets face it, the only dirt they'll ever see is possibly a gravel driveway. So Toyota has designed a truck to keep up with that market. However they also know that some people look for authenticity in their car/truck. I mean, how many people buy a Ferrari to go race around a track? I'd bet very few, but it's nice to know they can, right? Same thing with the new 05... You probably won't wheel it, but the locker is still there to provide that authentic image.

So 05 owners take note: if you wheel your truck, awesome, I'll see you out on the trail, and I'd love to see it perform. If you're into malls, and you like to whine and moan, this is not the place for you.

I second this one.

If you are offended…..It’s not my fault you put yourself in that category!

Bilstein 5100, Toytec 3" spring lift , 33 M/T, Camburg UCA, Daystar 1" body lift BLa Bla Bla do you really give two shits to what is on my truck? NO! I didn't think so, but more to come when I get the chance.

Peace and a bag of chips!

To put it another way, you probably wanted Eva Longoria, Halle Berry or Brooke Burns, but here is what you settled for:

Sorry Lobster, I didnt mean to flame, but from re-reading my post, I can see how it could be taken that way rather easily . This kind of thread seems to get everyone all riled up, myself included . Well I gots to get going, need to get things ready for my beach trip this weekend! It may not be the foot hills they call mountains on the east coast, but at least its not paved!

If you're looking for a new truck that has not a flaw, then look in happy land where nothing is wrong ever!!!!

Clearly you have not driven a '98, they where perfection incarnate, if you had searched you would have known that.

Whin, whin, whin, It's not like me 80's/ 90's/00's Taco!!
Right it's an 2005!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, but "we" are not your typical "mall-I wheel in style-wheeler". Sorry. We wheel in rocks, you just keep wheeling in style because style will probably be the biggest obstacle your truck ever sees.
