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


My 05 Tacoma has been terrific so far. It's powerful, comfortable, quiet and extremely well built. It's the Lexus of mid-size trucks. The V6 Prerunner is very capable offroad in most cases and on road, it's a joy. I have no problem or issue that require a return to the dealer. It's a good thing as the dealer experience was anything but pleasant. Luckily, Toyota engineered the V6 with the oil filter easily accessible on top of the engine so oil changes a breeze to do at home. Most of all, you can't go wrong with Toyota reliability and value.

Best Features

The interior design and comfort really make the truck a winner. The composite bed is a great idea as well as the 110 A/C power outlet in the bed. The 4.0 V6 has incredible power and torque. The 5 speed auto is very smooth. Oil filter placement is great and ease of maintenance looks very good.

Worst Features

The Bridgestone Dueler H/T tires are a poor choice for the factory to use on this truck. Traction is poor on wet and snow covered roads. A more agressive tread would be appreciated. A simple Toyota Logo would be fine for the tailgate instead of "TOYOTA" "TACOMA" "PRERUNNER" "V6 SR5".
