2008 Toyota Tacoma V6 4dr Double Cab 4WD 5.0 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
This is my second Tacoma DC in a row, and I thought my first one 2003 was great! The new model seems nicer in every respect. First the engine sounds different and has a lot more power. The 5 speed auto transmission is very smooth and the new gear shifter is nice because you can between drive to 4th to 3rd with no hassle, fun to play with in rush hour. The ride quality is car like. The new interior looks more refined. I think the leg room between the front and back seats is smaller than it was on my 03 DC, but that could be the front seats go back farther? Lots more storage under and behind the back seat is nice. Im not sure why all trucks dont come with auto up/down for all windows.
The way it drives.
There is no connection for an MP3, and a sunroof would have been nice.
