2010 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab V6 4dr Double Cab 4WD 5.0 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I've owned this truck since 12/09 and have to say this is the absolute WORST new vehicle I've ever owned. This truck has weak leaf springs, "hunting" transmissions, steering problems on loose gravel, noisy ac blower motors, rust on frames/bumpers of brand new trucks... I could go on, but you get the picture. This is actually the 4th Toyota I've owned and I couldn't be more disappointed. My brand new (9 mth old) truck has each of these problems and Toyota refuses to fix any of them with the exception of the leaf springs. Toyota quality is a thing of the past, and if I can give you any advice at all, it would be to look elsewhere for your truck. Don't take the chance. You've been warned!


Best Features

If I had to pick one, it would be the 4x4.


Worst Features

Fix seating position, it's too low, fix the noisy engine tick, fix the transmission, I don't even know what to say about the rust issues..., add better insulation to improve the noisy cabin (rain hitting the roof is astonishingly loud), Basically, you need to improve the entire quality of the truck.

Review

Steering: A+ response is very accurate, precise and sensitive. Suspension: A+ The TRD off road suspension handles great & provides comfort regardless of the speed or road surface. The clearance height is a perfect compromise. Engine: B Dependable & strong. I towed a 3.5k lbs boom no problem. Also handled several payloads of brick just fine. Highway merging speed could be better. Fuel economy is decent but could be better. Interior: A+ Looks cool, seems very practical in function & layout. Good materials. Brakes: C- Brakes are important, & each time I towed or had a payload I worried a bit. Without a load they're adequate for a safe driver. Composite Bed: A+ innovative, practical, best in class!


Best Features

The traction control works amazing in snow & ice. The interior is awesome. The bed is extremely useful with little storage cubbyholes, tie down cleats, & an AC outlet. Another favorite is knowing the resale value will always be up there. I also love the backup camera, JBL sound system & other upgrades


Worst Features

Definitely better brakes. An optional V8 would be very appealing. The V6 could use variable valve timing for power and economy. For a truck reaching 5,550 lbs its HP should be no less than 270 in my opinion. Lastly the paint scratches extremely easy. And the sheet metal may be too thin/ dings easy

Review

An excellent truck! Coming from the original 1995 Tacoma, this is a huge upgrade. I like the fat that Toyota basically kept the same features of the interior and didn't make everything complicated. Thus, the simplicity of the interior is awesome. The JBL sound system is next to none and the ride is outstanding. Good power with lots of options. Paid 33,000 for the entire package and it was totally worth it. I thought it was pricey at first but in ten years when it is still getting me to work and play every day, I will have no regrets. Anyone who buys ths truck will not be disappointed. It has plenty of room, plenty of power, and great mileage. I pull a 20 foot boat every weekend, no prob.


Best Features

Power, simplicity, reliability. Toyota is an awesome company with great incentives.


Worst Features

Power seats, just to add luxury. A louder factory exhaust to give it a little more of that "truck" feel.

Review

Bought the TRD Off Road package: very sharp looking truck. Great ride, great features except for the seating. The seats sit very low and are extremely uncomfortable. I test drove the truck 4 times and the seating issue was not noticeable on short rides. Any ride over 20 min however, was another story: could never get comfortable. Took the loss and traded for a Silverado LTZ after only 6 weeks.


Best Features

Plastic cargo bed is great with built in storage and power outlets. Nice ride and handling.


Worst Features

A 6 way adjustable power seat would solve the issue of comfort for taller people.
