2008 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner V6 4dr Double Cab 6.1 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
I bought my Tacoma used in 2011 with about 25,000 miles on it.
I drove it for 3 years and 55,000 miles.
I never had any kind of trouble with the engine or drive train, as far as reliability.
It never broke down.
My complaint was the truck always revved a little high while at idle.
Also, the shifting was always weird.
At low speed it would stay in low gear too long and rev high before shifting.
Under load, the engine would knock.
3 of the 4 automatic door locks eventually quit working.
The compass/thermo stopped working.
The A/C fan would intermittantly stop working.
I liked the various storage pockets under seats and in the bed.
I liked the 6' bed.
My average fuel economy was 18mpg.
