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


Review

Toyota keeps building great machines. This one has been very reliable. 55mi and running strong. NEVER needed repairs outside of general maint. This truck offers all around versatility, good gas mileage (19 mpg- city or hwy), and great resale. Yes, this truck will cost you 2-3K more than a domestic, but it's well worth it.


Favorite Features

Solid 4wd, powerful 235 HP V6, lots of interior and bed space. Easy oil changes. Very little maintenance needed.


Suggested Improvements

Couple of minor complaints: Noisy windshield at high speeds and squeak in the heater fan. No other improvements needed.

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


Review

I bought this truck new in December 04. It is fun to offroad in, gives me about 18 mpg. This is a way better truck than any Chevy Dodge or Ford. I've only had 1 problem with it and it was the transmission. The transmission went bad because of bad driving habits. The Toyota dealer replaced it for free and gave me a free rental until it was complete. I tow a trailer full of dirt bikes up the mountains with no problem.


Favorite Features

the 4x4 power outlet in the bed the bedliner


Suggested Improvements

I'd like to see a new Tacoma with at least 20 mpg city

Review

I've got 90/10 good and bad reviews. I like the radio, which I have the V6 SR5 4x4 model with the TRD Off-Road pck, and nothing more I could say about how great it is to drive! The manual transmission, though, I got to say that I don't like. I hear a slight thump whenever the gear's lever hits the end of the outline of the transmission gear shifter. The speaker system is bad and rad. It make the volume feel like it's at 30 when it's really on 18!


Favorite Features

Absolutely love the radio system and speakers. Love how powerful the engine is.


Suggested Improvements

I wish they'd get rid of the manual transmission and keep the automatic.

Review

I'm a medical technician and have to drive it anywhere and quickly, also I don't like to spend a lot in fuel.


Favorite Features

Fuel economy, looks and comfort are my favorites.


Suggested Improvements

I guess rear discs brakes and an mp3 player would be better.

Review

this truck is amazing. After having a 92 toyota pick-up and trading it in for a car, i really missed the feeling of a truck. This truck is everything I missed and more than I could have hoped for.


Favorite Features

Increase in power is pleasantly suprising.


Suggested Improvements

Using proprietary stereo speakers make it hard to customize.
