2005 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab 4dr Access Cab Rwd SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Love everything about this truck.


Favorite Features

Love the electronic limited slip differential feature for wisconsin winters. With some weight in the back, no need for 4-wheel drive for the average driver. Love the composite box.


Suggested Improvements

none

2005 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab 4dr Access Cab Rwd SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

A great mid-size truck. With 4-cylinder, plenty of power. A LOT of power from stop to 60 MPH. Handles great. Comfort is very good. The new bed design is awesome. I hope they will not change this. Fuel economy is very acceptable. Have not had any problems with this truck. If I could change anything it would be to have had the option to add fog lights and running lights - really should be standard equipment, for safety reasons!


Favorite Features

Opening rear doors for access to back seat area. Many added features over the small pickup truck. Would have to brag about almost everything.


Suggested Improvements

Make running lights a standard feature. Allow fog lights to be an available option

2005 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab 4dr Access Cab Rwd SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This truck rides better, handles better, than my last (96 with 137,000- no problems). I have the 4cyl, manual, extended, SR5 package, etc. Still Low miles, but I got 28.4 mpg on a recent 200 mile trip. I don't pull or haul much, ATV on a trailer, but this 4cyl has all the power I need, with reasonably good acceleration, and great gas mileage.


Favorite Features

Good ride and comfortable interior. Good gas mileage. Clock is not in back of steering wheel any longer. Like those two small doors for loading and unloading.


Suggested Improvements

Revs too high (2200 RPMs) when started cold. Dealer says this is normal, but I think it's too high. Does cause the engine to warm up quickly, then drops back to about 900 RPMs. I don't care much for the orange/red lights in the dash.

Review

I have been driving it for a little more than 2 weeks. Handles so much better than the older Toyotas. More room, power. love the access doors, getting 26 miles to gallon. The new bed liner is great with the tye down very nice. The ride is better than most cars very smooth. New dash lay out is great very easy to see all the extra's, the chrome make for a nice touch on the interior. Last is how quiet the ride is as long as the fan is off, the fan still makes too much noise.


Favorite Features

Handling, smoothness of the ride, more room, access doors, how quiet the ride is.


Suggested Improvements

make the fan quieter
