the new tacomas yes arent the greatest but the 1st gen tacos(95.5-04) are the best trucks ever built with the 95-00 being the most reliable

theyd be the best if they could survive a canadian winter without folding in half. You cant find these trucks in JY cause their folded neatly in the drivers glovebox of their new Ranger

My dad has a 2005 Taco TRD. The thing has been in the shop so many times for stupid crap wrong with it. And he takes perfect care of it. Totally OCD with doing everything. My ranger has been beat on, driven into the ground, abused, and blow off all the maintanence... never had a problem other than a failed radiator.

lol i am not deniying that the tacoma in those years were reliable (slightly underpowered with the 3.4L in crew cab format but I have seen more rusted Tacomas of those era then I have of rangers in the same era and theres more rangers on the road as you know so you made the right choice lol.

Its ridiculous that toyota still has the "its double the price cause its reliable" reputation after all that happened the last few years. Id swap your dads taco for a 2005+ frontier honestly.
