Regular Cab 4 cyl manual

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


I am 6'4". I fit in the truck just fine, the problem is little room for my size 14 shoes, the toes hit the bottom of the dash. The telescoping steering wheel needs to come another 2-3" farther away from the dash. As is, with the seat all the way back, my arms at 10&4 are nearly straight, not that comfortable. In 5th gear, the stick knob is in the way of the temperature control. The gears are vague with the need to double clutch to get it into first at times. Otherwise, I am happy with the truck. There is plenty of power with the benefit of good gas mileage. Bed is great but cargo will skate around on slick surface. I'm hoping the frame won't rust in ten years.

Best Features

Mileage, power, price, cab roominess and features.

Worst Features

Better ergonomics for taller people. Smoother gear shifting. Give us cruise control in basic model. I hit a deer and a lot of shattered plastic up front which cost $1000 to fix, two headlights and a grill. Does plastic really need to cost that much?
