Getting new truck this weekend. Would love opinions on each truck. Thanks.
I would go with the Toyota simply because they are very close in price and you get a little more truck with the Tacoma. Being a mechanic and having owned Dodge, Ford, Toyota, and Chevrolet trucks I will say none of the others come close to the final product of the Toyota. What they lack in gadgets they more than make up with in craftsmanship. I don't think you can go wrong either way though. Been around the Frontier plenty and it would be an easy second choice for me.
Toyota. 298,000 miles on my 98 Tacoma. Still runs and rides like new. Has never leaked a drop of oil. I change the oil regularly with Mobile synthetic 5w-30.
Toyota! Go to Hoover Toyota and ask for Dwayne. That's my dad, he is a great salesperson.
Toyota, hands down.

Right now, according to Consumer Reports - which does an exhaustive annual evaluation on all vehicles - the Tacoma is easily the highest rated truck on the road in its class in terms of performance, trim packages, engine issues major or minor, resale value, electrical systems, etc.
However, they're proud of'm. I think they're great trucks. I also think they're one of the most overpriced vehicles on the road of ANY type. When you look at what you'll spend on a Tacoma Supercab, you could be in a full-sized truck or SUV.
So, the good news on the Tacoma is you get what you pay for. But you WILL pay for it. So spend some time shopping.
Hope this helps.
Man, you're kidding. I worked with Dewayne many years ago. Great guy.
He knows his stuff. That's for sure.
Yota! I've had an 85, 96, & an 02. Trucks run forever & the 4x4 is second to none.
I think both are great trucks. I have a 2002 Frontier with over 160,000 miles and have never taken it to a shop other than routine service. It is a great truck.
Thanks for all responses and opinions.
Get the taco. Both are good trucks but you can't beat Toyota reliability and the Tacoma just looks much better
I had an 05 with zero problems and now have an 07 tundra with zero problems
Toyota! I have a 2001 Tacoma and have beat it to heck and back during a lot of hunting seasons and it has 165,000 miles on it and has never had any major problems. I have only had one car my entire driving life.
iv'e owned several toyota's as hunting trucks and they were all put thru the test,,,,,buy a toyota
I also may be on the market for a new vehicle soon and had just begun really thinking about what type of vehicle I may want. I keep coming back to the Tacoma based on appearance and "track record" only. Haven't done any research yet, so I appreciate the opinions here also.
If you don't mind the gas go with a 5.7 tundra. Sexy and it beats my friends cayenne s
