    Or better, ‘why didn’t Toyota ask me about this first?’

    LED interior lamps (lack of)
    Only one bulb in the dome lamp
    There is more, none of which make me wish I had bought something else...

    I have a feeling that @whippersnapper02 may be able to make a couple of posts in this thread.

    Gotta say that after having mine for a couple months, I love it. Much better feelings about it now that I have learned the trucks habits.

    Don’t get me wrong, I waited 25 years to get back in a 4wd pickup, and the only way I would have picked something other than a Tacoma is if AMC was still building full size Jeep pickups

    You know how you have that proximity switch or whatever it is in the driver’s door handle... why ain’t they one like it on the front passenger door? I still open the door for Mrs. AD, and her Highlander has that feature, so...

    Yeah. That is one thing I’ve never understood why they didn’t add.

    2016 thread but if you insist...

    3rd gen:
    Engine downsizing(can probably be fixed with a good tune in place of the Toyota bitch tune)
    Styling (big grill Toyota thinking)

    2nd gen (mine when new):
    No USB
    No rear 12 volt
    No rear A/C vents
    No storage (just extra cup holders)
    No electric rear slider
    No cargo lamp
    Weak leaf springs
    Cheap headlights (factory ones lasted 6ish years before the DTRL lenses started melting...replacements from toyota already looking bad after 2 years)
    Windshield seal noise
    Mileage was no better than a full size

    In general (mid size problems):

    No interior space (can’t even put a pizza box on the floor)
    No bed space

    I could have fixed the last 2 with a full size but I didn’t think I needed one.

    You went a lot easier than I thought you would. Lol.

    Totally agree with the rear AC vents and rear 12 volt outlet.
    I like my big old screen door of a Grille on the third gen.

    Nothing I don't like about my 2nd gen but I'm not too picky. It starts, drives, and 4x4 works fine . A whole lot more solid truck then my last Chevy's not near as many interior squeaks and rattles

    On the third gen with a manual transmission a pedal commander makes the engine really come alive.
