Review

Very dependable. Have no complaints, only wished it would get better gas mileage. It seems to be very durable. No part failures or recalls on this one. All small trucks should have 16" wheels and leather seats. Tacoma 2dr 4 cyl. Does not. My concern at the present is, a vibration coming from the drive shaft, under acceleration. If a person wants or needs a small truck, this is the one.

Had a Chev. S-10 that fell apart driving down the road. Traded it for the Toyota and never had a problem. Just oil changes and normal maintenance. What a great truck.


Favorite Features

Great ride and mileage is around 25 mpg.


Suggested Improvements

Need to install delayed wipers on new models

Review

I am the owner of 2005 reg cab 4x4. It has a huge problem with rust on the frame. The rust is not all the way thru but it already has started and I have never seen rust like this so early. Frame actually looks as if it belongs to a truck 20 years old! I would only recomend this truck to someone living in a very dry area. I will not purchase another Toyota because of this. How safe can it be to drive down highway with nothing holding the truck together? I wish I would have known before purchase. Too bad, I get over 25 mpg with A/C on in city!


Favorite Features

gas mileage


Suggested Improvements

Better metal for frame!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Better plastic for interior doors

Review

I purchased this truck because I needed something to haul stuff for gardening, home improvements, etc. I was sick of putting things in the trunk of my car. I wanted a truck with good mileage and styling. I didn't want to pay a lot. This truck accomplished all of this. At 6'4" tall, it was also the most comfortable, compact truck I could find.


Favorite Features

Mileage for 4WD truck. On recent trip to Canada, was like a car ride and got 460 miles to a tank. Composite bed. Looks.


Suggested Improvements

I find the engine revs very high on start and the clutch takes a while to warm up on cold days, causing a rough ride for the first 10 minutes. Windshield could be a little higher for us tall folks.
