FWIW, here's a list I find quite fascinating from Toyota's recall website:

These Toyota models, regardless of year or VIN, are NOT part of the recent recalls.

Yaris
4Runner
FJ Cruiser
Land Cruiser
Camry Solara

this is interesting because if you go to the tacoma forums, they love talking shit on rangers. And they say the same stuff about Rangers that you guys are saying about Tacomas. (actually they say FAR worse things about the Ranger). They're quick to point out that the ranger is noisy with a clunky transmission, terrible ride quality, and gutless power but they don't stop there.
One guy went as far as to say "when i'm driving in my new Tacoma and I see a Ranger, I laugh and feel sorry for the chump that he's driving such a worthless pile of shit" or something like that.
My favorite was a post this guy made about how the FX4 Level II was the only Ranger that was "decent" , but it got "owned in every aspect by the new TRD Tacos"

LOL...pure entertainment value

It's a 2004. Thats a 2nd generation. Remember it wasn't called a Tacoma until 96. Also, the best motor is the 4 banger 22re motor. Those old ones with that motor will last forever. Hell toyota makes a good truck. I have a friend with a tundra with half a million (no shit) miles with the original motor & transmition.

Glad I bought the Ranger just my 2 cents,

The steering is not sloppy it is just tight. You can't fight it like you do your Ranger. You get used to it after a while.
