Tacoma ok but no so great
By Jerry Hosteg on

Vehicle

2009 Toyota Tacoma V6 4dr Double Cab 4WD 5.0 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

I've so far owned two 2009 Tacoma Trucks. An offroad model and a sport model. The offroad was totaled and I replaced with the sport model. Overall I like the truck and it's a keeper, nice acceleration, quality interior vs the competition, safety features are great - ie. my airbags worked on impact, and the frame crumpled and distributed the impact force properly where my cabin area stayed intact. However, I won't buy another 6 to 10 yrs down the road unless Toyota can fix the rough ride, the spongy brakes, and improve the fuel economy by at least 2 MPG for the 4X4 model.

Favorite Features

Backup Camera. Suspension good for offroading on the offroad and sport models. Vehicle has better looks than competition.

Suggested Improvements

Needs a smoother ride! Truck does a terrible job absorbing the rough road. You can feel it in your seat!
