My third new Tacoma since 1980

2007 Toyota Tacoma V6 4dr Double Cab 4WD 6.1 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
This truck is a very smooth ride, has plenty of power and is very comfortable on long trips. Visibility is great, you can see all around very well.The truck handles well at higher speeds when changing lanes and can be thrown around at lower speeds without feeling like your going to roll it over. The main thing wrong with this truck (mine anyway) is that at around 70 mph the front end seems to lift up and it loses stability and steering feel. A windy day and getting around some tractor trailers will make you have to really pay attention to what its doing. Strangely putting on more speed seems to improve this handleing defect. Seems to have a lot if wind noise coming off the outside mirrors.
Comfortable, roomy, powerful. I get 19.6 mph doing normal driving combined city and highway. Get about 16.5 driving on a trip when cruising at 80-85. Can get 21 if you baby it.
More tie downs on the floor of the bed. There are only 2 at the rear. Make it handle better on the highway at @70 mph.
