2009 Toyota Tacoma V6 4dr Double Cab 4WD 5.0 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I was being lured to the 09 Tundra due to my towing needs I have a 5000lb travel trailer. The dealership recommended I get the Tundra but I am not a fan of the tundra in short it reminds of a sports car. I want a truck that is sporty and functional the Tacoma fits this desire. I have towed my trailer with the Tacoma and it has no problem power wise. I would say you can feel the weight behind you but the Tacoma has plenty of power to handle it. The only complaint I could offer is the daytime illumination of the radio and compass isn't adequate you can't see the display if it's sunny. Other than that I have had the tire light come on and upon checking tire pressure they are fine.


Best Features

Comfort, premium sound system


Worst Features

instrument illumination

2009 Toyota Tacoma V6 4dr Double Cab 4WD 5.0 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I waited nearly two months to have the truck built with the 6speed manual...well worth the wait! Good power, good room inside, good storage behind and under rear seats. Rides very smooth. 6 speed is fun to drive.


Best Features

Beautiful truck, offroad package is worth the $$$.


Worst Features

Gas mileage. I drive ~ 200 miles/wk, 100 of which are highway. Its still breaking in and I'm getting 18.5mpg. Hopefully ill get up to 20.

Review

This truck did me great for the first 5,000 miles. I had no problems with the 4x4. But for some reason, and the dealership can't figure it out, my tranny dumped on me. Don't know why. I didn't do anything that this truck couldn't handle but it broke.


Best Features

power, comfort, back up camera, safety features, stereo, and 4 wheel drive


Worst Features

Transmission has no dip stick and no way to check the fluid.

2009 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner V6 4dr Double Cab 5.0 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Traded in my 99 GMC half ton on the "Cash for Clunkers" for a double cab TRD Off-Road and never looked back. I have wanted this truck for a very long time and I am not disappointed. Front & rear seats are big enough for 4 full size men and is comfortable on long hauls. Compared to the old GMC, the engine ad breaks are fantastic (don't see what others are talking about??). My only complaint is no XM radio?? The locking rear differential is a must have with the 4x2. Towed my 5,000 boat with no problem (need trailer brakes). Would recommend to anyone looking for a mid- size truck.


Best Features

Back-up camera, towing ability, engine, transmission, interior fit & finish, radio, off-roadabilty even with 4x2, locking differential and everything else. What's not to like...


Worst Features

Add XM radio as standard feature.

2009 Toyota Tacoma 4dr Access Cab 6.1 ft. SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Only had my Taco for two weeks, but I love it! Interior is laid out logically, and is more comfortable and roomy than I expected. The engine is quiet and peppy even though the tranny has rather high gearing (75 mph at 2500 rpms). The 5sp manual shifts easily and smoothly. The ride is smooth and extremely quiet for a truck. Handling is average, but drives like a car on the highway. Radio and A/C work great. The standard tires and rims don't do much for the looks but ride great and are quiet.


Best Features

Love the interior except for the low seats. The composite bed is great. A/C will freeze you. Quiet ride.


Worst Features

Seats are comfortable but need a height adjustment. Never have liked Toyota's "tilt wheel".
