2005 Toyota Tacoma 4dr Double Cab V6 4WD LB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The perfect truck for my family. Roomy and comfortable on long trips and at the same time sporty and with good acceleration for passing. It is a good all around truck and well built as well.


Best Features

The 4 wheel drive and the powerful V6 not to metion the rugged looks.


Worst Features

Fuel cell hybrid with Hi torque electric wheel hub motors.... in the future maybe.

2005 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Regular Cab Rwd SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Bought the 2005 Toyota Tacoma Base with A/C and 15" wheels, have not owned it long but a great truck. I had a 1985 Toyota Truck bought new and put 150k on the clock. If you a looking for an inexpensive vehicle for a homeowner this is it.


Best Features

Dash Board Style CD player/Radio Good A/C


Worst Features

Clutch engagement is too high

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


Review

Worth every $$$. Love the sweeet ride! It rides more like a luxury car than a pickup. With this truck you get the best of both worlds - classy and rugged at the same time. Cant stop licking my chops when i first laid eyes on this beauty. I'd give up my wife first before giving up on this truck. Thank you TOYOTA !!


Best Features

The folding hard surface rear seat. The TRD suspension. The ABS brakes. The smooth and seemingly effortless POWER.


Worst Features

Running boards should be a Standard feature and not an OPTION.

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


Review

The ride is good for a truck, The seats could have a little more cushion. The engine downshifts all the time in the mountains, but that I can live with. I averaged 21 to 25 mpg on a recent trip this weekend, fully loaded with kids and dog. So far so good! Toyota does make the best in my opinon, and does really have the best resale, that is if you resell it. Toyota has plenty of room inside, and is a blast to drive. GO FOR IT!


Best Features

All the storage areas, gas mileage, looks, dependability, room, placement of all the accessories. Toyota has done it!!!!


Worst Features

Better seats, reduce the air noises, not bad but you can still here some. Fix it where it does not downshift so much going up hill and you will get way better mileage.

Review

At 5-10 grand less than similarly equipped "Big" trucks, it is truly a great value. Ride is firm but comfortable, handling is tight and the interior noise level is low. I will post again as time goes on.


Best Features

AC outlet in the bed! Wife loves contoured armrests in the rear doors.


Worst Features

Needs cassette in the dash so I can operate my XM radio w/o the FM Modulator! Also like to display a vanity plate in front and the dealer says no license plate holder is available. What about states that require both front and back plates? (Tags for you Suth'ren folks)
