Bought a used 06 2.7L 5sp. This truck runs great and doesn’t burn oil. My truck has 375,000mi.!!!!!! These trucks are very reliable and they just last FOREVER! I can’t see why this truck wouldn’t make it to a million miles if well maintained. The price of entry is worth it.
I bought this 06 Tacoma new and at 12 years and 160K it hopefully has years to go. It rides and handles well in all weather. Great V6 engine with plenty of power that gets 18-19 MPG. Comfortable on long trips and all terrain. Shortcomings include electrical needing complete overhaul just out of warranty: $2300 then $400 more a year later; Inadequate leafsprings I had to add a leaf to just to carry a moderate load. Toyota wouldn’t accept that it was a problem until they were recalled a few years later. They installed the same crappy springs it had in the first place. The frame was replaced at 10 years old under a special warranty because they were rotting out here in the NE, which is great.

My grandpa bought me a Toyota Tacoma, the year of 2006 and it's very reliable, it isn't comfortable in the backseats because I got extended cab ,but it works for me and another passenger, it's incredible on gas mileage and I'm blessed to have such a nice truck
