Poor Gas Mileage
By J. Matthews on
2007 Toyota Tacoma V6 4dr Double Cab 4WD 5.0 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 6M)
The drive and ride on this vehicle is very good. The transmission shifts good and is smooth in shifting. The brakes seem to be very responsive and firm. After the fact of purchase I found out that the plugs needed to be changed every 15000 miles. I really find that unacceptable. I changed them and restored the gas mileage back in the 18-20 mpg range. The Tacoma needs the timing chain changed out at 100000 miles. I find that unacceptable. I bought this vehicle for low maintenance costs. I don't think this will happen.
The ride, looks and comfort in the seats. There is room for four adults with comfort after adjusting the front seat.
Gas mileage is a problem with me - I had hoped to get better than 16-17 around town and 18-19.6 on the road. The front end needs more metal in it. Less plastic. Very flimsy and unsecure in my opinion.
