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


I have owned this truck for one year now and love it as much as the day I picked it up! Although it's not perfect it far exceeds all GM trucks I've owned, mechanically, reliably,and aesthetically. This truck works hard carrying weight 80% of the time and has performed flawlessly. After 50000KM I have had no problems whatsoever except for paint chips. Whether it be a result of poor paint (white) or to many gravel trucks, I don't know. Overall I am very happy with my first Toyota Tacoma.

Best Features

Great looks, accessible interior controls, awesome headlights, decent sound system,turning radius exceptional, easy 4WD use, great in deep snow and mud (w/upgraded tires)

Worst Features

Maybe leather seats for easier cleaning. The "meshy" fabric looks OK but hard to keep although has stood up to much abuse;kids,sports equip.,etc. A better tilt wheel so legs don't hit climbing in or out is my biggest beef. Paint chips easily, or do I run into alot of stones off gravel trucks?
