2006 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Regular Cab 4WD SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)


I bought this Tacoma in oct of 2006. It's a 2.7 i4, 5spd manual, 4x4 w/ ac. The truck itself is great. Handles well on the highway as well as offroad. My only complaint is the 5spd manual transmission. It does not shift smoothly. It sometimes hangs up going into reverse and 2nd gear. I have taken it back to the dealer a few times and was told that while they test drive it there wasn't any problem shifting. I am 55 yrs old and have been driving manual transmission trucks and cars for a while. This is the first one that felt like the trans was low on oil, or the shifter was bent out of shape. That has been the only problem I have had so far.

Best Features

Great off road. Tight turning radius. I have the stock dunlap 245/75R16 tires. Have been in some real thick mud and in 4wheel low range I pulled right out of it. On the highway it's a charm. Cruising at 65 mph on the turnpike is smooth and quiet.

Worst Features

Fix the manual transmission!
