Getting The Best
By gary on 02/17/05 13:28 PM (PST)

2005 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab 4dr Access Cab V6 4WD SB (4.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I find the pick-up (my 4th toyota) to be incredible. Its room, solid to drive with great steering and braking. The suspension is very stable. All the controls are in the right place even the parking brake which has been noted as "not easily accessible" by Edmund. The dash and gauges are well placed and viewed easily. I need leg room and this truck has it. The 4 wheel drive controls are very simple. Con: the seat beal is a little hard to connect. and I would like some protection from door dings i.e. side molding.

Best Truck Ever

Review

I've driven a lot of trucks, and this is hands down the best truck I've ever driven. The ride is smooth, the engine is powerful, and most important the truck is capable. Don't waste your money with Dodge and Nissan, while they are good trucks they fall way short when you caompare them to the Tacoma.

Great Mid-Size Pickup

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


Review

Have owned Toyota vehicles for approximately 25-years, including a 1993 Extended Cab Pickup, which was sold to purchase a 2003 Extended Cab Tacoma which was traded in for the 2005 Access Cab Tacoma. What a Truck.... Rides like a Camry with the heavy suspension feel of a truck. Cannot complain about anything to date. New trnasmission is very smooth. Excellent Radio/CD Standard Sound System. The bed is awesome...what an engineering design for a pickup truck.

fender fill cap cover and seats

Review

The fill cap cover on the left fender has 4 protruding sharp points, that will cut your hand. The front seat (one piece) is the worst design for comfort I have ever experienced. The hood rattles even though the dealer has worked on the vehicle 4 times. The accelerator is located so far to the left that your leg stays in a cramped awkward position all the time. The transmission is real iffy, weak and the engine sounds as if it is gasping for air. I will never buy another Toyota tomm

Review

I am still trying to figure out what it is with designers. They took a perfectly good size of the Tacoma and changed it. It is more bulky and deliberate. It is no longer a small truck - I might as well have bought an F150. The radio looks like art-deco, sounds ok but looks terrible ... real imagination at work here (sarcasm intentional). So the brilliant engineers again took something that wasn't broke and tried to fix it. A style and color upgrade was needed ... but bigger is not always better ... wake up Toyota!!!

Great Truck

2005 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab 4dr Access Cab PreRunner V6 Rwd SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

My 05 Tacoma has been terrific so far. It's powerful, comfortable, quiet and extremely well built. It's the Lexus of mid-size trucks. The V6 Prerunner is very capable offroad in most cases and on road, it's a joy. I have no problem or issue that require a return to the dealer. It's a good thing as the dealer experience was anything but pleasant. Luckily, Toyota engineered the V6 with the oil filter easily accessible on top of the engine so oil changes a breeze to do at home. Most of all, you can't go wrong with Toyota reliability and value.

Review

I put a tool box on the truck but that make very bad road noise. The 6 cyl. will move the truck faster than the Chevrolet Z71 with the small V8 and the milage is somewhat better.
