New 2005 Tacoma owner

Vehicle2005 Toyota Tacoma 4dr Access Cab V6 4WD SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
ReviewWe traded in our 2000 Tacoma on the new 2005. The differences are dramatic. Larger & more comfortable cabin – particularly the new seats are very much appreciated. The ride is much improved, even with the TRD pkg. The rear doors are a big improvement. The new 6-cylinder engine really gets out and moves this truck. It’s too new to give much info on fuel economy, but on paper it gets nearly the same as our 2000 Pre-runner w/a 4 cylinder. The one thing that I do miss is the “grab handle above the passenger’s door. It’s a very sharp looking truck !!
Best FeaturesLots of power - very smooth engine. Seats are very comfortable. Towing pkg. gives this truck some great features - oil & tranny coolers.
Worst FeaturesThere is no automatic available w/the 4 cylinder. I like the grab handle above the door on the passenger's side - like the old model had. Storage compartments in back are long & narrow &could use some improvement.
