I did my homework and looked at all the competitors even full size. The new Tacoma is head and shoulders above all others. The ride, size and power combination is perfect for driving in SoCal. The truck looks and drives great. All of my friends are jealous. Toyota's reputation speaks for itself. It truly is a world class truck. Buy one you will not be disappointed!
245 HP! Looks bitchin', hood scoop and big tires give it a really nice prerunner look, stereo sounds great, seats are comfy and interior is roomy yet it isn't too big.
Power seats that raise/lower. My wife is real short and has trouble seeing over the dash and hood scoop.
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.
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 !!
The folding hard surface rear seat. The TRD suspension. The ABS brakes. The smooth and seemingly effortless POWER.
Running boards should be a Standard feature and not an OPTION.
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!
All the storage areas, gas mileage, looks, dependability, room, placement of all the accessories. Toyota has done it!!!!
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.
