Waited 6 months before writing my
review and happily report that I have
not had ANY problems.
Build quality is great. Resale value is
I get many compliments from
Being very particular about my
vehicles, I compared the Toyota with
it's competition. Found the Totota to
be a more attractive total package.
My wife and I both love the room the 4
door model offers.
I chose the 2.7 liter engine over the
3.4 due primarily to the 4 cylinder's
established history for bullet proof
reliability. I gladly traded off the
performance for better fuel economy (
23+ mpg around town!)
Plan on keeping my truck many, many
Commanding view of road
Offer 5 speed manual transmission
Oil Pressure and Voltage guages
Make Michelin Tires standard
I do like my Toyota Truck. It is a Pre- Runner Double Cab 4X2/V6. It has a lot of torque in the lower RPMs. The color, Lunar Mist and trim package SR5 looks very good and I'm proud to own it. The interior is really nice, carpeted, good seats, an excellent sound system with six speakers. My wife really likes the air conditioner because it works so well. I think the fuel consumption is a little high. But then it is a truck. To ease the pain I try to hold the speed limit and seldom drive over 60 mph. Since I'm a short person, 5"3", the truck is a little high for me to get comfortable in and out.
Despite some of the negatives I think it is a good vehicle and will give us good service for many years to come
Feet are just a couple of inches shy of the ground. That means I have to slide off the seat. The running board and the inside handles are not much help. Also the purchase price was a little high.
Love this Tacoma! Thinking now of selling in order to get better fuel economy (steady 20 mpg now) great, reliable vehicle - only negatives are placement of the clock (behind the steering wheel basically) and interior picked up scratches on plastic too easily. Wish gas mileage was better and I could keep it!
This is a well built and good looking truck. I am a bit of a neat freak but i do still get comments 7 years later on how good this truck looks. The paint, body and style has held up really well. 2 minor recalls, it has never failed. I have the TRD off road, its a bit bumpy but that's what you pay for!
