2009 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Regular Cab 4WD 6.1 ft. SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)

Review

This vehicle is one incredible pile of junk. At less than 45 days following its build and less than 400 miles on the odometer here's the tally: underbody rust, rust and more rust; looks like the truck was built and then placed on the sea floor to cure; sloppy manufacturing permanently welded oxygen sensors into their threaded mounts; radio quit working; 4WD system engages only when it wants to -- not when you want it to; brakes soft as sponges; mystery rattle from right door pillar. This thing has a totally plastic (plastic!) box, I'm not talking a steel bed lined with plastic, but plastic!

Best Features

Great heater; relatively quiet. Red back-lit gauges are pretty nice.

Worst Features

Get rid of the TPMS; dash lights on even in the daytime? C'mon. How about adding a 4th leaf to the rear springs, like your competition does, so you can actually haul something? Steel does come in varieties that have low rust properties. A completely plastic bed box -- you have got to be kidding!
