Base 4x4 VG but needs basic amenities
By TBloch on
2008 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Regular Cab 4WD 6.1 ft. SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)
This is my 3rd Tacoma. The truck is nice and tight, no rattles or squeaks. Much bigger than my '96, which I don't like, but it rides and handles well. The bench seat is more comfortable than the one in my '96. The 2.7 engine is peppy. Wish I had opted for an automatic, but those are probably hard to find in a reg cab 4x4.
Quiet ride for a truck. Fit and finish are exceptional. 4 Cyl 2.7l performs well.
In this decade even a base model needs external temperature monitor, internally adjustable side mirrors, pulse wipers, lockable fuel port. Window crank handles are inconvenient. 4WD control knob should be illuminated. Use green or blue for instrument backlight, not orange. Why no V6
