2005 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Regular Cab 4WD SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I've been looking for a truck for years before finally settling on the new Tacoma. The Nissans didn't drive well after a few years, and the older Toyotas didn't come with much in the way of standard features. I got a basic regular cab 4x4 with the 4 cylinder engine and 5 speed manual. For a very basic truck, it comes loaded with many things that make it fun to drive everyday (cd player, ABS, etc). I was skeptical about the "knob type" transfer case shifter, but it has worked seamlessly so far. Overall it's nice to be able to drive something that does what a truck should do, and still feel like a raised camry.

Favorite Features

Great ride quality, standard cd player, center console, composite bed, feel of interior materials

Suggested Improvements

Engine noise is very loud (4 cyl.), unusually high idle at cold startup (2100 rpm), 9 cupholders for two people seems like a bit much!
