I am very impressed. I drive a 2005 Mercedes 320 CLK Cabriolet for my everyday driver, but this truck is becoming my favorite ride! The wife & I "fight" over who will drive it to work. We got the speedway blue, with the TRD offroad upgrade, and get compliments wherever we go. Love the Toyota quality & reliability. I expect this truck to last us for many years.
lots of storage & cupholders. Can tow more than I'll need. Enough power to quickly get up to highway speed. Powerful AC for extra hot Las Vegas summers.
GPS Navigation I've grown used to in my other cars.
Great Truck!! I got the V6 w/ the 6 speed manual transmission and the sport package. It is a little smaller than a late model F-150 but it is not afraid to be a truck. I took it to San Diego for a week and got tons of looks.
The sport package adds higher suspension and a hood scoop to the list of great features.
The only issue I have had is a squeaky clutch pedal... I do like the rugged style of the 2005 but there is one thing that I didn't think of until I had bought the truck already. There is no bed light for being able to load the bed in the dark...
Only put 200 miles on the truck so far but had loads of fun doing it. I opted for the TRD Offroad Package and have had a great time running over and thru anything I can find. It has everything you can want - the power, looks, performance, and driveability!
Ride height, performance & handling, and Toyota reliability.
The foglight and locking rear differential buttons are literally right next to each other and I sometimes switch one or the other on by mistake. There's no lock on the glove box?
I did my homework and looked at all the competitors even full size. The new Tacoma is head and shoulders above all others. The ride, size and power combination is perfect for driving in SoCal. The truck looks and drives great. All of my friends are jealous. Toyota's reputation speaks for itself. It truly is a world class truck. Buy one you will not be disappointed!
245 HP! Looks bitchin', hood scoop and big tires give it a really nice prerunner look, stereo sounds great, seats are comfy and interior is roomy yet it isn't too big.
Power seats that raise/lower. My wife is real short and has trouble seeing over the dash and hood scoop.
