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


Review

As my first foreign truck, my 2010 Toyota Tacoma DBL cab, 4x4, TRD Sport, short bed is fun to drive on and off road. It is small enough where it is simple to park anywhere and just big enough for 5 small or medium sized people plus cargo. For tall people and the front seats pushed back, there is just enough room in the back for children. It has a solid feel, enough power, but fair on MPG. It looks good on the outside and inside. I love this truck and will probably buy another foreign truck in the future.


Favorite Features

Bilstein shocks, 17 inch wheels, and front skid plate. Also love the leather wrapped steering wheel and shifter knob. The availability of a Toyota made TRD supercharger, air intake, and stainless steel exhaust system.


Suggested Improvements

For such a nice truck, Toyota should have put a locking fuel cap door with remote lever like most cars today. And there is no front license plate frame holder or mount. There are just two holes on the front bumper for mounting the license plate.

2010 Toyota Tacoma 4dr Access Cab 4WD 6.1 ft. SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is my 1st truck and I bought it because of the reputation. I should've gotten more features in the truck like remote mirrors, cruise etc. because once you spend that kind of money you feel like you should have more comfort and luxuries. I'm a little disappointed on the gas mileage so far and how toyota "cheaped out" on some thing like the 4 wheel drive switch doesn't illuminate in the dark so you have to put the light on to locate it or the 1 CD player, seems like everyone else gives a better stereo system these days and at least cruise control?? Seems like they just give the "basics" and make you pay through the nose for any additional features.


Favorite Features

On the fly 4x4, mud flaps


Suggested Improvements

Should get better gas mileage, illuminated 4x4 switch (a must), should have a better CD player, standard cruise control, radio antenna internal to windshield instead of external

2010 Toyota Tacoma V6 4dr Access Cab 4WD 6.1 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Best bang for your buck in the truck world. The 6-speed transmission is pretty much flawless. TRD Suspension is very compliant for a daily driver. Tires aren't the best but that is personal preference. There is a reason the taco is the best selling truck.


Favorite Features

6M, reliability, aftermarket support for suspension tuning


Suggested Improvements

Better fuel economy for the V6 for those who want it, and 300hp option for others. Audio setup is poor design, but works decent.

2010 Toyota Tacoma 4dr Access Cab 6.1 ft. SB (2.7L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I love my Tacoma. This is my 3rd Toyota truck. The '10 Tacoma carries on the tradition of great build quality and reliability. This is one of the quietest trucks I've owned. The 4 cylinder/auto tranny is very responsive, pulls well and builds speed quickly. The interior is very comfortable and quiet. Although I've had the truck for 2 weeks now, the fuel mileage seems to be getting better as it gets broken in. Averaging 25 combined city/highway miles per gallon, and I expect it will only get better as it gets broken in.


Favorite Features

Reliability. Fit and finish. Smooth, quiet ride. Reclining bucket seats. Cup holders everywhere. Excellent visibility. The back up camera is a handy feature to have, makes parking in my garage a breeze.


Suggested Improvements

I wished they would have the power door locks lock the doors when you put the truck in gear with the automatic transmission. A nice safety feature.

2010 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner V6 4dr Double Cab 6.1 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Am in the 2010 Tacoma for 2 weeks now and it's clearly evident that for larger - especially taller - drivers this is a cramped truck. It appears that the truck will be able to carry out most of the tasks I need it to do but if you are over 6' tall I would recommend a full size truck. Perhaps it didn't help that I had a Dodge Quad Cab before but there is no storage for tools, etc. in the cab...no room period. Once you have adjusted the driver's seat there is no leg room in the rear so the double cab doors are for access and will not seat 4 adults.


Favorite Features

The gas mileage is great and everyone likes the look or styling of the truck.


Suggested Improvements

If they offered a six-way adjustable seat it would help with the comfort for taller drivers but only kids will fit in the rear seats at best.

Review

Researched for a long time. What a solid and refined vehicle. All plastic matches and doesn't squeak. Comfortable and smooth ride. Sits high enough without realizing it's a truck. Nice interior. Great storage and convertible seating. Versatility without being too big.


Favorite Features

Camera in rear view mirror helps me back the truck into the garage. Composite bed. Tail lights and daytime running lights. Rail system in bed. Lots of cup holders.


Suggested Improvements

Auto up windows. Sound system a little muffled.

Review

I took delivery on a speed wagon blue V6, auto. SR5, access cab Tacoma pick- up. This is my second in 3 years. Obviously I think they are a good product and depreciation is low. I have had no reliability problems. Comfort and performance are excellent. I have found that gas mileage is very close to EPA sticker I love the back-up camera, traction control and side air bags. My wishes: a more adjustable driver seat, a smaller "A" pillar (blind spot drivers side) and a dash light that tells you if the parking lights are on. I am satisfied.


Favorite Features

Back up camera, various traction control features, comfort of the interior and steadiness on the highway. The plastic pick-up bed. Storage nooks. The handsome, rugged design. It drives very much like a car.


Suggested Improvements

Blind spot "A" pillar drivers side. Dash light for parking lights being on. More comfortable, more adjustable drivers seat. A more solid front end. A plastic bumper cover on a pick-up is unacceptable I hit a small deer at 40 mph and caused $2300 damage.

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


Review

This is my first Toyota since a Corona station wagon back in the early 70's, and boy have things changed. It feels even more solid than the '94 Dakota it replaced, and it's at least twice as comfortable to drive. Haven't had the chance to put all the off road features through their paces yet, except for checking that everything works, but I already have some very interesting "roads" in mind to try it out on. The double cab configuration with the short bed is just about perfect for what I have in mind for it. Fuel economy is nothing to write home about, but for a truck this capable, it's not too shabby. Reliability remains to be seen, but Toyota's reputation is very high in that regard.


Favorite Features

The TRD Off Road with towing package seems to provide about the optimum feature set for serious back-roading in the desert southwest. The only problem is that all the different traction options almost require a cheat-sheet to keep track of. I have yet to fill up all the storage compartments.


Suggested Improvements

The transmission TSB for the 2009's needs to be extended to the 2010's also. My wife thinks it needs a 6-way power seat and adjustable pedals so she can drive it too (she's 5'2"), but I think it's fine the way it is :). A little less glare from the interior surfaces would be nice.

Review

It has been a great truck so far. Bought the TRD Sport version. Rides great and looks great.


Favorite Features

Overall styling.


Suggested Improvements

Transmission seems to search for a gear when going around corners at low speed. Not sure what that is all about, but otherwise everything is great

Review

Performance: Performance and handling is great. Has plenty of power. Driving the mountain pass had no problem passing the big rigs even towing. 4x4 handled the snow well. The electronic transfer to 4x4 is smooth. Interior: Quality throughout. TRD seating is very comfortable. AUX jack is a bit awkward in placement as the flap that covers it gets in the way. The sub woofer is a plus. B/U camera would be nice to be able to use when not in reverse. Exterior: The TRD Sport comes with a stylish hood scoop. The 17" TRD wheels and tires are stylish and handle well, especially in the snow. The composite bed is a plus as you don't need a bed liner, but is slick so cargo tends to shift and slide.


Favorite Features

Nice 6 Disc Changer and Subwoofer. V6 has plenty of power. Love the 4x4.


Suggested Improvements

Only has two D ring bed hooks at the rear of the bed. Would be nice to have two up at the front of the bed.
