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


Exterior design makes it a good looking truck. I was complimented several times on its design. Fun to drive on weekends but looks are deceiving. It claims 18/22 but it was more like 16/20 with the 4x4 TRD. The bilstein shocks made for a hard drive. Clutch pedal replaced with only 9000 miles after making squeaking sounds. Extended cab rather cramped for adults but adequate for children. Expensive to maintain especially with the suggested 3000 miles oil change along with dealer's "suggested" preventative repairs.

Best Features

Sliding glass privacy window and shift box was smooth

Worst Features

Fuel Efficiency - Gasing up every 5 days with the recommended high ocatane (91) by toyota is costly. Better seats in extended cab version
