I'm trading it for a Chevy
By tonyjag on

Vehicle

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

Review

Wanted a 4x4 for winter driving and home improvement type errands. The good: the 4 cyl engine is strong, quiet and fuel efficient. The bad: at 60 miles an ignition cable connector on the steering column became loose, payed to get it towed to the dealer, 6 hour wait and didn't get reimbursed for the tow, seats are extremely uncomfortable, clutch pedal creaks, the carpeting is all frayed, first gear impossible to engage unless completely stopped, radio labels are wearing off, bed makes loud noises over every pothole, shift stick boot fell through. In short this is the worst car I've owned and it's not that I'm really picky either, I've been driving a Chrysler for 5 years!

Favorite Features

Handles very well over snow and ice, very fuel efficient engine.

Suggested Improvements

Adding intermittent wipers can't be that expensive! Seat back and seating position are terrible. Nedd to use better materials and assembly, even the rubber mats I bought for winter from the Toyota dealer have a hole through after only 5k miles of use.
