#92 of 95 off road vs sport vs sr5
Dec 07, 2007 (5:57 pm)
I am in the market for a tacoma, 05 or newer, 4x4 4 door and am not sure what i want so I have a few questions.1. It seems that everyone agrees that the trd off road is the best off road rig, but how do the sport and sr5 do off road? 2. Most discussions seem to be about the sport vs. off road, how does the sr5 stack up to these two? Is it worth the extra dollars for the upgrade? Are there any other major differences between the three that are worth talking about, I would love to hear anyones opinions on these issues. Note that this will be a daily driver where the weather is good, but I do want the ability for bad weather driving and some off roading for camping, hunting, fishing, etc...

One of the things you need to do is familiarize yourself with the frame rust problems experienced by owners of trucks of the vintage you're talking about. URL is http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/WebX/.f1200e2/465 You don't want to commit to a truck that is going to be taken off the road in a few months due to frame rust. Also the edmunds.com used car buying tools are very useful to figure out about what you should be paying.

09 tacoma, 4-cyl, same thing. I am about to go to a different dealer and test drive a different one, just see if the noise is there. When I drive and see a new (05-09) tacoma, I stick my head out the window, to see if I can hear it. I think I am noticing it on others... kind of difficult at some speeds... This sucks!!! It does sound like valves...
