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


I got an Ext. Cab with TRD-Off Road Package. The truck is excellent in everyday driving. I drive through country roads with only 1 lane(in each direction) and find myself passing other trucks and vehicles all the time. Very dangerous but I have enough power to do it quickly! Very reliable truck, already have 50K in it and the engine and paint are as good as new. I drive fast and only get 17.5 MPG, but when I slow down I reach up to 19.5 MPG.

Best Features

Look, engine sound after installing flowmaster catback, placement of radio (replaced it with a DVD system/backup camera), size vs capability, gear shifting without having to press a button, riding height, interior look.

Worst Features

Bluetooth, sunroof, bed lights(had to install my own), I feel like the sport seats that came with the TRD package cramp my back, hybrid option, or the option of manually selecting between 6 and 4 cylinders.
