2007 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner V6 4dr Access Cab 6.1 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 6M)
Having spent over a decade in an S-10 Blazer, I was amazed at the quality of materials, quietness and smoothness of the Tacoma. My son-in-law has an '02 Tacoma that he loves. Driving my '07 is a pleasure. It has a great view of the road, ample power, a smooth-shifting manual 6 speed and ice-cold AC. The seats are comfortable and all of the controls within easy reach. I found the stereo to be more than adequate for my tastes, I'm not an audio snob. The locking rear differential is a nice bonus. I'm looking forward to many years of service from this truck!
V6 and 6 speed manual combo, locking rear differential, overall style, fit and finish are first rate. Good storage space in Axcess cab. Great ergonomics!
Gauges can be a bit difficult to see at certain times of the day. 12V accessory jacks only work when engine is on. Cruise controls are a bit awkward. A leather seating option and sunroof option would be nice.
