Default Drove a 2011 tocoma today

all I can say is the tacoma is junk compaired to my 2011 ranger! The tacoma has a lot of road noise, noisy engine, sloppy steering, and all though the tacoma is rated at more power, I didnt see any difference between it and the ranger. Yeah i would spend 10 grand more to have one ....NOT!
Glad I bought the Ranger just my 2 cents,
Regards,
Dewking

The 2011 Tacoma does not have sloppy steering....just a huge turning radius. The engine is no noiser than the 2.3 or 4.0.
As far as the power difference goes...there is...... but the Tacoma is so much bigger and heavier, what do you expect.
I think the bottom line price difference between the 2 comparably equipped Tacoma and Ranger is $3000-$4500.
The Toyota incentives are a joke.

I take you have driven one, the taco has sloppy steering (maybe it has a huge turning radius but it is sloppy) and a noisy engine, also has a constant tick tick sound from the engine, it is a dog as far as i am concerned.

I drove a couple of access and double cabs but would never buy one. A bunch of duratecs have a ticking noise too.

I was going to buy one back in '07 but I ended up getting my ranger instead. Kinda glad I didnt get the Taco because my insurance wouldve killed me, it was $2300/year for a 4 year old ranger, just imagine what it wouldve been for a brand new truck.

I heard that the Taco's were having issues though, sagging leaf spring, radios cutting out without warning, engine surging in higher gears, valve rattle with low octane fuel etc
