Toyota Tacoma, Diesel, Truck
#129 of 138 Tacoma (or other small - mid size)

I'm driving an 05 Taco and I love it. I've got a little over 100k on it and very few problems. I hate to leave Toyota and will hold on to this one until there is a good diesel available. Because of the my size the Ford Ranger just won't do.
I love my Tacoma, but lets get a good diesel to the market and then maybe Toyota will play catch up. Looks like my next truck won't be another Toyota, but if I'm lucky the one after that might be.

its not that toyota or any other car company prefers not to sell diesel cars in the usa it the fact that CA, NY have restrictions on diesel sales... when those states drop there diesel fobias then you will see more diesel cars in the usa... I have a 93 MB 2.5 turbo / 05 VW Passat TDI
cant wait for more options but both are great...

I agree. The problem isn't Toyota. The problem is EPA and the CARB.

I have to say though, That Nissan does make a superior medium duty truck though. I have been operating tow trucks for 10 years and after driving the nissan cab overs for the last 5, I dont ever want to go back to the ford, gmc`s or dodge offerings. Nissan would give the big three a run for their money, if they paid as much attention to their personal trucks, as they do to their commercial offerings.

I owned a Tacoma diesel in Africa and did over 300,000miles. I sold it when I left there in 1994, and wentback in 2003 and it is still running...

Welcome to the Forum
We would love to have a Tacoma diesel PU in the USA. We do not because of politics. There is no real desire in Congress to cut fossil fuel consumption at this time. If there was we would have embraced small diesel vehicles 10 years or more ago. Did you keep any records of mileage in your diesel PU truck? It has to be a lot better than their gas guzzling model sold here. The gas version may get 18 MPG. One poster with a Tacoma diesel was getting 35+ MPG. Pretty impressive.

#138 of 138 2011 TOYOTA TACOMA TRANSMISSION PROBLEMS??
Nov 15, 2010 (12:48 pm)
Hello...i'm new to the forums, and first of all, i want to thank you all for all the amazing inside info on you'r vehicles, eventhough for most of you, the issues are very unfortunate. about 2 weeks ago i was really to go head on, into buying a toyota tacoma crew cab, with the long bed. but something told me to check for issues, and sure enough i found this forum. i read alot you guys have issues with your transmissions from 2006 to 2010, but is there any changes for the 2011, i have not read any issues on the year yet. I think we all have trusted Toyota in the passed specially me having witness my father owing an 87 4cyl 22R truck with more than 675K and in perfect conditions, same engine, same tranny...but i know thos toyota days are over. anyhow, if there's someone outthere that has 2011 tacoma and has issues, i would be greatfull if you can tell me.....once again, soRry to hear all your issues....lets hope for the best.....
