Nice Cheap Truck (Inexpensive)
By Glen on


2005 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Regular Cab PreRunner Rwd SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)


I was planning on buying a new Tacoma
this year, I just happened to get lucky
with the restyling for 2005. The truck
looks as good as any truck out there,
and looks like a "real" truck. Before
making my decision I looked at used
trucks of all kinds...outrageous prices
for somebody elses high mileage
monster. I was pleasently surprised to
find I could buy a brand new Tacoma for
around 16 Grand (people are selling
their used Tacoma's for more). I got
the PreRunner 4 cylinder because it was
cheap and so am I, and I get the added
benefit of good fuel mileage.
Of course before receiving the truck
I was concerned about H.P. envy, the
truck has pleanty of power and drives
great. No envy.

Best Features

Though the Regular cab PreRunner is a pretty basic beast (even with the SR5 package), every thing is done in an excellent basic fashion. The truck handles well, the four cylinder will do everything it's supposed to do and in a grander fashion than I was anticipating.

Worst Features

I can't complain for the price, in Greedy fashion I could say better speakers maybe, or height adjustable seats. Oh...composite bed is a slippery eel, but beautiful...just needs rubber mat. The truck is well thought out. Biggest problem is I want to drive it and not work...Life's tough.
