Big Little Truck
By Taco Grande on
Vehicle
2009 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Regular Cab 6.1 ft. SB (2.7L 4cyl 4A)
Review
It's a little bit big for a compact/midsize. Despite what some people are saying, it's noisy (clutch fan and mechanical noises) compared to a lot of cars and SUVs. No alloy wheel option for the base model at all. Sits a little high for a street truck (2x4). It handles like a truck with no rear sway bar. ATRAC is a waste of money to me. ABS is OK though (expected now). Mileage could be much better with a little effort from Toyota. The body looks good for a little truck. I had a TPMS and radio problems, but the dealer fixed them. Toyota knows very well about the radio problems. I'm betting they have to replace about 75-100% after the sale.
Favorite Features
Plastic bed, MP3 player stereo, decent AC, supposed to be reliable.
Suggested Improvements
Lose the bench seat. Nobody is sitting in the middle. The space could be better used for luggage, groceries, purses, tools, etc. Better mileage with a similar power output (direct injection with turbo). Trans. geared too low for 75 MPH highway travel. More sound insulation everywhere.
