2009 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner V6 4dr Double Cab 5.0 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
This is my first Toyota and I bought it without a test drive. I think overall it is a nice truck with a good set of extras. However, given Toyota's track record of excellent and dependable vehicles, I expected a bit more for the $$. For a new truck, there is already an annoying rattle/vibration at low RPM and it is especially noticeable when it's cold. The transmission seems to hunt when it downshifts, giving the sensation that you are are driving on ice at times.
Backup camera. AUX input. The towing capacity is great.
Fix the transmission problem. Improve on gas mileage. More insulation to decrease engine nose.
