2006 Toyota Tacoma 4dr Access Cab SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)
When I first bought the truck I loved it, it was great and just what I wanted. However after about 5k I started to get a bad clutch chatter like you are about to stall only worse. I brought that to the dealer's attention, said it was normal. I have been driving stick shift for a while and that is not normal, even after giving it lots of gas the chatter would still happen. The worst part of the whole thing is that at 26k the clutch blew, I had to have it towed to the dealer where they said it was not covered by the warranty and I would have to pay $1400 to fix it-everything was bad in the clutch,even the springs were broken which they said was because I was a bad driver.
It is comfortable, but I would not recommend this truck because of its clutch and power train issues which toyota knows about and does nothing about it. Buying a new truck with a warranty you don't think you will be paying repair costs but with this truck you will be after only 1 year.
