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


Review

Don't ever believe anything Consumer Reports says about this model.
Heading for 200,00 miles and the only major issue I've ever had was having the frame replaced -Recall (at no cost to me) a couple years ago, and even that was a smooth process thanks to my Toyota dealership. Other than that and general scheduled maintenance costs, a burnt out cigarette lighter($25.00) and one lost hub cap($52.00) is all I've spent on this vehicle in over 17 years. Hard to imagine any other auto manufacturer's being able to top this.

Review

Very dependable. Have no complaints, only wished it would get better gas mileage. It seems to be very durable. No part failures or recalls on this one. All small trucks should have 16" wheels and leather seats. Tacoma 2dr 4 cyl. Does not. My concern at the present is, a vibration coming from the drive shaft, under acceleration. If a person wants or needs a small truck, this is the one.

Had a Chev. S-10 that fell apart driving down the road. Traded it for the Toyota and never had a problem. Just oil changes and normal maintenance. What a great truck.

Great ride and mileage is around 25 mpg.

Need to install delayed wipers on new models

Review

I am the owner of 2005 reg cab 4x4. It has a huge problem with rust on the frame. The rust is not all the way thru but it already has started and I have never seen rust like this so early. Frame actually looks as if it belongs to a truck 20 years old! I would only recomend this truck to someone living in a very dry area. I will not purchase another Toyota because of this. How safe can it be to drive down highway with nothing holding the truck together? I wish I would have known before purchase. Too bad, I get over 25 mpg with A/C on in city!


Best Features

gas mileage


Worst Features

Better metal for frame!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Better plastic for interior doors
