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


Review

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.


Best Features

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.


Worst Features

GPS Navigation I've grown used to in my other cars.

2005 Toyota Tacoma 4dr Access Cab V6 4WD SB (4.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

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.


Best Features

The sport package adds higher suspension and a hood scoop to the list of great features.


Worst 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...

2005 Toyota Tacoma 4dr Access Cab PreRunner V6 Rwd SB (4.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

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!


Best Features

Ride height, performance & handling, and Toyota reliability.


Worst Features

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?

Review

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!


Best Features

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.


Worst Features

Power seats that raise/lower. My wife is real short and has trouble seeing over the dash and hood scoop.

The perfect truck for my family. Roomy and comfortable on long trips and at the same time sporty and with good acceleration for passing. It is a good all around truck and well built as well.


Best Features

The 4 wheel drive and the powerful V6 not to metion the rugged looks.


Worst Features

Fuel cell hybrid with Hi torque electric wheel hub motors.... in the future maybe.
