Older Taco's have frame rust problems. While they're reliable, rust is not really a good thing.

Frontiers are good, more reliable Japanese stuff. New one is coming out though, so it'll depreciate fast. You could look at 1st gen Colorado's and Canyons. Reliable, American, can be had with a V8. Throw Rangers in there for good measure, they've been around forever.

All the older mid size will be reliable. You can opt for a 4 cyl in the Taco and Ranger, which would be best on MPG, and not so good if you have any weight in it or plan on pulling a decent trailer. The GM twins can be had with an inline 5, or the ole 5.3 LS. Rangers are my least favorite, but they sold an ass load of them.
