ReviewOwned many Toyota models and this is my biggest disappointment. Interior parts scratch easily. Wildly revving cold engine starts. Touchy clutch. Transmission very hard to down-shift into first when cold unless you are at a stop. When you finally get it in gear you will most likely smash your knuckles into the sharp edge the designer felt was practical to leave on the dash at the end of the shift lever's travel. A horror story for short driver/tall passenger combos. Knees will be smashed into the space hogging dashboard. Would it have killed Toyota's bottom line to put a split bench in this vehicle? If you are looking at this truck, do yourself a favor and get the Access cab.
Best FeaturesIt will hold some resale value. Truck does ride nicely on the road. Rail system for bed is useful. Gas mileage is acceptable.
Worst FeaturesSee above. Split bench seat or make buckets standard. It is actually a useless truck for short legged people with tall passengers. Refine the tranny. Fix the high idle. Better plastics.
