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


I try to get every mile per gallon I can and with this truck I have been able to squeeze 28mpg on the highway and about 25 around town with over inflated tires. It's comfy but... I am a carpenter and when the bed is loaded to about half capacity the head lights are aimed too high and there is no adjustment, the radio turns on and off randomly and has been replaced (still does it) the seat belts get tangled in the rear door, when I use 4 way flashers the dash lights up like Christmas tree, passenger seat belt warning goes on for no reason, ice gets stuck somewhere behind dash and it sounds like a bowling alley.

Best Features

Lots of air bags, back up camera, radio sounds good when working, comfy seats, cute but functional little storage compartments in cargo area. Nice ride if you want a car.

Worst Features

Bigger front doors, adjustable head light angle, better seat belt retractors, better (stiffer) rear springs.
