I am on my 9th Toyota and couldn't be happier with the truck. The V-6 has better acceleration and get-up, and has a better transmission than my 2004 Mustang V-6 :( The transmission is very smooth and strong. I got the TRD Off Road package and the ride is smooth. It doesn't bounce or ride hard like many other trucks. I love the overall quality, style and design. Toyota just does it right
Overall design and style. Auto transmission is super smooth and strong. Stong V-6 engine (245hp) but still gets good gas mileage (better than my Mustang did)
Had this truck since Aug. 2005. I did months of research before I bought this truck. The research paid off. Being at the end of the summer season, I was able to get the exact one down to the color and options that I wanted. I got the accurate gas mileage by filling it up, run for about 150 miles and fill it up again, and devide the miles into the gallons. I got 17.5 city, and 22mpg on a trip. Performance is great. The 0-60 time is 7.5 sec. Fast for a 4000lb truck. The ride, comfort, and handling, I think is great. Try it
High performance V6 on premium fuel. Good gas mileage. Comfort, build quality, looks, reliability, towing capacity, composite bed liner, Just about everything.
Would like to have heated rear view mirrors, that aren't available yet.
I love my not-so-little red truck! Gas mileage is excellent! Never been under 24 for me, and sometimes is as high as 28. The 4 cyl has plenty of power as well. 4WD is easy to engage and provides extra pull in 4 low. The composite bed is an improvement. Plenty of space on the interior, even for me at 6'2" 230 lbs. This is a great buy for the price, assuming that it is as reliable as a Toyota should be.
Full size 16 inch wheels. Nice stereo with six speakers. Extra compartments all over provide plenty of storage. Oil filter is easy to change. No sliding rear window on my model!
I wish it had a cargo light for the bed. Right now, I don't know what to change.
