    Hi,

    New guy here...a long-time TacomaWorld member (same username). I chose a base 4Runner TE MGM over the 2016 Taco. I take delivery in 3 weeks.

    I tested the Taco in A/T and M/T but just couldn't pull the trigger. The A/T was hunting gears all the time, and while the M/T was OK, I couldn't decide on the 1st MY Taco after reading all the negative threads on the 3rd gen. I got a lot of valuable info on TW, both positive and negative posts helped me make my final decision after I got to test drive the M/T.

    The 4Runner will be my daily driver. I travel 60 miles/day, 4 days a week. The heaviest I pull is my 6x10 enclosed motorcycle trailer. I'll also be hauling music equipment for gigs from time-to-time.

    Talk to you guys later.

    Haha...it didn't use to be like that @ TW. It was different back in 2006 when there were less than 1000 members.

    From my experience, if your 4Runner is running well, keep it. I should have kept my 07 Taco.

    Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone.

    I hope to post pics within 2 weeks, and hope to save up more money to bring down the monthly payment even more :)

    Many of us are Tacomaworld transplants. I was for years, but recently purchased a 2016 4runner. You will be very happy with your purchase.

    It's official. After 3 months of searching for a vehicle, I finally got her home. I'm very happy so far.
