I'm one of those Tacoma defectors. I owned one too, sold it and was in the market for a second one, but I felt as if I was expected to beg and kiss some dealership a__ to buy one. Not my thing.I wonder the # of Tacoma defectors are like me. We were going to get a Tacoma until we found out the ridiculous ADM.
Colorado doesn't have a sunroof and the design hasn't aged well (imo). Ranger is overpriced and mis-packaged (imo). Frontier is a non-starter. That leaves the Tacoma and the Gladiator.
Good thing is there are Gladiators on the lots. No so for Tacomas.
I liked my Tacoma, but I like the Jeep about 3x better. No comparison.
