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


Review

I have owned every make of truck, and this Tacoma is the best truck by far. I drive a lot of freeway miles, the ride and handling is perfect. I will never own anything else but Toyota.


Best Features

Locking rear end on wet pavement. Easy to see dash, and console shifter.


Worst Features

I cannot think of any.

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


Review

This is an outstanding vehicle. It is far superior in quality and design than other trucks in its class. I have owned several trucks and Toyota has always been the top in its class.


Best Features

Design and engine performance.


Worst Features

Higher and softer seats should be considered.

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


Review

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


Best Features

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)


Worst Features

Nothing comes to mind

Review

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


Best Features

High performance V6 on premium fuel. Good gas mileage. Comfort, build quality, looks, reliability, towing capacity, composite bed liner, Just about everything.


Worst Features

Would like to have heated rear view mirrors, that aren't available yet.

2005 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab 4dr Access Cab 4WD SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

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.


Best Features

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!


Worst Features

I wish it had a cargo light for the bed. Right now, I don't know what to change.
