I have owned 3 Tacomas, a 4 Runner, a Camry and an FJ Cruiser. All have been perfect. You will find a few Nissan guys here and there, but us Toyota guys bleed love for our Yoters for a reason.

Toyotas are good vehicles, no doubt. I've owned a couple myself. Like my Nissan better, though.

Default Toyota no doubt

310,000 + on my 92. Still going strong. Had a Nissan before it, kept stripping front axles out 4 wheeling on the weekends.

Had a 2007 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab 4WD manual transmission that I bought new and drove it daily.

It was a rock solid vehicle that performed really well for me.


I let it go to another owner 2 months ago and bought a new 2017 Tacoma Double Cab 4WD automatic. So far I am very, very happy with the Tacoma. Wasn't sure how I'd adapt to not shifting gears....I'm loving the auto thus far.

2011 Nissan Frontier 92k miles.


Besides maintenance, I need a wheel bearing replaced and maybe the thermostat (heat won't work unless it is moving).

The Nissan Frontier is American-made (Canton, MS).

Perhaps, but not the question he asked.

Regardless of reliability, both are claimed to be reliable, and opinions vary quite a bit..................
The tacoma will by far have better resale value...........

I’ve owned both and both were 95’s and were equally rock solid reliable. I will say that I hate that Toyota doesn’t make a manual shift 4cyl anymore and Nissan makes one but only in 2wd. The days of the 4cyl manuals are going bye bye it seems.

Actually Dodge Ram 2500s with the Cummins has standard as an option. I have owned three, all standards, on my third one now a 2010 and it is a 6spd standard. I purchased it new, it has over 200k, many of which are "hard" miles on it with no issues.

Drive a Nissan Pro 4X, more truck than I need but it makes me smile every time I ask it to do something a little extra. I save probably 10K over the like Toyota which is a great vehicle.

As long as you don’t tow anything of any substance there probably isn’t any difference between the two worth fussing over. I own a Tacoma off road. My first mid size truck. I will go back to at least a half ton on my next truck.
