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


Review

The truck has been perfect since I bought it. I went from a Dodge Dakota getting 8 to 9 mpg in the city to getting about 17 on the Tacoma with just as much if not more power than the Dakota's v8.


Best Features

4WD, 5speed automatic, ride, milage, looks, composite inner bed (no need for bed liner).


Worst Features

The only improvement I would suggest is finding a better configuration for folding the back seats, it is a little hokey.

Review

I have had this truck for 3weeks and luv everything about it. I sold my 94 standard 4cyl. 4x4- it had 134,000 on it and ran perfect and I never had to take it in for any problems. I hope this 2005 does the same.


Best Features

The room in the double cab and the lack of outside noise in the cab. The new look and the v6. And the manual 6 speed


Worst Features

gas mileage.

Review

Great truck all around. I stepped up from a 2004 PreRunner. Great engine, easy to maintain. Very comfortable for long trips and capable off-road. Composite bed limits the choices for aftermarket parts (lumber rack, some covers, some tool boxes, etc.) but is great for most hauling applications. This is our new "family" vehicle.


Best Features

Styling, engine, rear locker, comfort, 6-speed manual transmission. Rear seat leans back more than the 04. LOTS of interior storage for a pickup.


Worst Features

Include a set of true tiedowns at the front of the bed. Better stereo. Optional front e-locker. Go back to a separate shifter for 4wd... the switch is a bit chintzy.

Review

Have only had it a few months but all seems like expected so far. Have one small rattle from engine compartment which sounds like a loose heat shield that I am going to get fixed in a day or two. Comfortable interior, very little road noise, handles like a car. So far so good.
