2007 Toyota Tacoma V6 4dr Double Cab 4WD 6.1 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
At 6k the LF wheel bearings, front axle and roter needed to be replaced. (never off-road or accident)Cruise control is useless-jumps gears constantly. Mileage OK at consistant 16.5-18 with a canopy. Blows occasional smoke on startup which got a little better with synthetic oil. Watch for sludge build-up on these motors. Check warranty carefully -Toyota will not look at this problem unless you are losing a quart of oil every 1k miles. Fingers crossed mine is not one of these problems. Thank god I had not installed the lift kit and voided the warranty!
Comfortable interior, upgraded tow package pulls small motorcycle trailer easially. Good torque and acceleration with V6. 4 door option very roomy for passengers. Good visibility and handeling. Curb appeal. 17" wheels.
MP3 jack for stereo-lights on window switches and locks for PM driving. Modify warranty to cover the possible valve problems (smoking) before you need a new engine.
