Just what I wanted
By Toyota John on


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


Looked at every truck available and almost got a Honda. The Toy was not as nice but much more fun to drive. I'm on the fwy every day in LA traffic and love the 6 speed, original tires have 65k and will last another 8K months, clutch is solid as the first day. Overall quality is first rate. Interior room is fine but not spacious. I am 6'4" and my sons are 6'5" and they love to drive it. Plan to buy the exact same when youngest son takes this. Toyota no longer sells a 6 speed in SoCal so I'll go out state to get one.

Best Features

I'm a big guy 6'4" 250 lbs, seats are outstanding, no back pain after hours of LA traffic. Love the 6 speed, takes the boredom out of the drive.

Worst Features

Complaints; you can't read the radio in day light with the lights on wearing sun glasses and since I'm on the road 4 hrs a day it matters. Storage box in bed vibrates open and spills whatever is inside which then blows away. Needs more interior storage although it's not bad. Fix the red lighting.
