Very Nice Little Truck
By jleg on
2007 Toyota Tacoma V6 4dr Double Cab 4WD 5.0 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
This is my first Toyota and it is quite a change from my Ranger. It is bigger, faster, and gets better gas mileage. The back seat is great for my three kids and the leg room is reasonable for an adult. It could use a bit more brake, maybe rear disks. The paint has a great sheen and very little orange peel compared to other vehicles in its segment. The engine compartment is cavernous and there is actually room to work if you ever need to get to the coil/plugs or the alternator. Not like the shoehorned engine compartments I am used to from past experience. Overall I am very happy with the truck's performance and look.
Full four doors and a usable back seat for the family is the best part. The fuel economy is 20.3 so far but I am not thru the break in period yet so it should get better. The two tone interior is sharp looking and very well fit. Everything lines up almost perfect. The hood scoop is an eye catcher.
Rear disk brakes would be a bonus and maybe a little more refined idle control to keep the truck from trying to push thru the brake at a stop. Overall the truck needs nothing more but a couple of upgrades might help justify the higher price.
