2005 Toyota Tacoma 4dr Double Cab V6 4WD LB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


This is my second Tacoma (first was a 97 ext. cab 4x4), and WOW what a machine! The '97 was rock solid, and so far, the '05 has been just as good. The ride is smooth (w/ long wheelbase), the 4.0L and 5spd tranny is awesome, the 4x4 system works flawlessly, the interior/exterior styling is so much better than the competition IMO. It is everything you would expect from a 28K truck. The only minor complaint I would have is some wind noise at speeds of 65+. MPG is very good for a truck this size (18-20 mpg). Would highly recommend any Tacoma truck!! Tacoma = workhorse.

Best Features

10" ground clearance, long bed option for hauling gear/supplies, 11 cup holders, lots of storage space.

Worst Features

Fix windshield noise. Raise seats off the floor about 1" (too low).
