2007 Toyota Tacoma 4dr Access Cab 6.1 ft. SB (2.7L 4cyl 4A)
Toyota Tacoma offers a reliable vehicle, but option packages were not flexible. Wanted cruise control but that only comes with extended cab. Color and other options very limited. Design is cookie cutter. Lots of extra holes in the dash for accessory switches that will never be used and so on. I4 engine is underpowered making it necessary to manually shift between 3rd gear and drive. Cruise control is useless on roads even with slight inclines. The transmission downshifts constantly with a very jerky motion. Driver and passengers are constantly being thrown back and forth. Even slight side winds whip truck around on highway. Fuel economy not even close to what I thought it would be.
Reliable but plain. Lots of cup holders, jump seats are comfortable even for adults. Seats are comfortable. Build in bed liner. Controls well laid out
Offer more colors and options. A bit noisy on highway. Improve power and fuel economy on 4 cylinder. Dealer claims truck can tow a 3500 pound load, but I doubt that very much.
