Bought the 2005 Toyota Tacoma Base with A/C and 15" wheels, have not owned it long but a great truck. I had a 1985 Toyota Truck bought new and put 150k on the clock. If you a looking for an inexpensive vehicle for a homeowner this is it.
Worth every $$$. Love the sweeet ride! It rides more like a luxury car than a pickup. With this truck you get the best of both worlds - classy and rugged at the same time. Cant stop licking my chops when i first laid eyes on this beauty. I'd give up my wife first before giving up on this truck. Thank you TOYOTA !!
The folding hard surface rear seat. The TRD suspension. The ABS brakes. The smooth and seemingly effortless POWER.
Running boards should be a Standard feature and not an OPTION.
The ride is good for a truck, The seats could have a little more cushion. The engine downshifts all the time in the mountains, but that I can live with. I averaged 21 to 25 mpg on a recent trip this weekend, fully loaded with kids and dog. So far so good! Toyota does make the best in my opinon, and does really have the best resale, that is if you resell it. Toyota has plenty of room inside, and is a blast to drive. GO FOR IT!
All the storage areas, gas mileage, looks, dependability, room, placement of all the accessories. Toyota has done it!!!!
Better seats, reduce the air noises, not bad but you can still here some. Fix it where it does not downshift so much going up hill and you will get way better mileage.
At 5-10 grand less than similarly equipped "Big" trucks, it is truly a great value. Ride is firm but comfortable, handling is tight and the interior noise level is low. I will post again as time goes on.
AC outlet in the bed! Wife loves contoured armrests in the rear doors.
Needs cassette in the dash so I can operate my XM radio w/o the FM Modulator! Also like to display a vanity plate in front and the dealer says no license plate holder is available. What about states that require both front and back plates? (Tags for you Suth'ren folks)
I had reviewed trucks for a year before purchasing. I actually didnt want the truck because I didnt think it would haul, tow, and still maintain it's ablitly to drive to work everyday. I was WRONG. This truck is FUN, and economical. I would like better gas mileage but I know what I was getting into with a V6. The power & comfort that the truck provides is excellent but yet it feels like a car while driving. When needed, the truck will traverse terrain and tow with ease.
Roomy and very comfortable ride! I was genuiely SURPRISED! Is this truck a MIDSIZE?
Better accelerlation on takeoff. But the truck can run with full size trucks easily.
