Even if it has high miles, the engine should be fine. If it has a manual transmission it should also be fine, but with an automatic transmission I'd be hesitant.garyc57 wrote:Would that 3-5 hours of running in idle strain the engine and/or transmission?

I am sure this is looking at the newer models, where Toyota did all it could to destroy the Tacoma with the 2016 redesign. The demand of a well cared for 2015 or older Tacoma should be at a premium.

The former (through 2002 - aka Rodeo, through 2004) was body-on-frame. This one is an Odyssey (minivan) with a SUV body welded on top, as was/is the Ridgeline/MDX/Pilot . Not an off-road vehicle by any estimation.

This time it will be a Honda-built front-wheel or all-wheel drive SUV.
Yup, perfect for those who will never drive off-pavement... unless by mistake (maybe something like Chumley's off-pavement excursion?)hikeaz wrote:Not an off-road vehicle by any estimation. 'Not that there is anything wrong with that.'
