2005 Toyota Tacoma 4dr Double Cab V6 4WD LB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Review
Despite the rave reviews, I was disappointed in the new 05 Tacoma. Have had Toyota trucks sine 1985 and there things to really like about this 05 version, but, they missed the mark in a few areas. My same major complaints about the 02 Tacoma still exist - mainly way too much engine noise in the cab. For some reason, Toyota stopped insulating under the hood and it makes a big difference. My 92 Toyota 4x4 was quieter than anything made since including the 05. On the plus side, maintenance of this truck is super simple. No more oil change hassling. The oil filter now sits on top of the engine within very easy reach and the oil drain plug is a snap to access w/o the need to remove anything else.
Favorite Features
Good power; 11 (yes) 11 cup holders in the dbl-cab version; simple maintenace (easy access to oil filter, oil drain plug, and air filter); Fairly comfortable seats; instrumentation fairly nice (much nicer than the Chevy Colorado); composite bed w/ sliding rail tie-downs; double-decker bed design
Suggested Improvements
Interior noise a major issue; Power seats that can rise; non-functioning hood scoop somewhat obstucts vision; give us a tiptronic trans on these trucks (please!!!); no sunroof available; not competitively priced for what you can get elsewhere (you can buy a new 04 Tundra for less; give us a nav sys.
