2005 Toyota Tacoma 4dr Access Cab 4WD SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)


The windows (front, rear, and side) are small. At ATM driveups its a LONG reach down and in wet weather will soak your armpit! The rear quarter windows should open for ventilation. Rearward visibility is poor thru a small back window over high bed sides and tailgate. Windshield is small with a LARGE hood limiting visibility of obstacles directly in front of bumper. (Nice BIG front bumper!) Seats sit almost flat on the floor and at 6'2" I felt rather aukward, yet they are comfortable. No need for tilt wheel as my knees were close in the full up position. Rear seats face forward but offer no leg room for adults, great for pets and kids. If your an adult I'd opt for a tundra if possible.

Best Features

Much cleverness went into designing interior features. MANY improvements. Larger seats are comfortable. Controls are well designed and easy to function. Vastly improved interior space and headroom. The 2.7 4cyl. truck soars past 75 mph smoothly. Nicely spaced gears, fuel economy will be very good.

Worst Features

Add a lever adjustment to raise the front of the seats to support the legs of tall drivers. Add flip-out to open rear quarter windows for improved ventilation. I think something needs to be done to improve visibility as its hard to judge front and rear bumper locations. They're big for a reason!
