2006 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner V6 4dr Access Cab SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This is my first truck and I love it. The truck is strong and looks nice. I have over 1200 miles and no problems so far. The ride height is high, though feels bumpy at times. Gas is good but doesn’t match advertised mileage so far. All my friends dig it, they all want to drive it, haha. Overall runs smooth, except in stop and go traffic, automatic is kinda shifty.


Best Features

Styling is eye catching. Power is there when needed. Interior design, lots of storage space. Engine layout, easy to change oil. Ride height. Off road look and feel.


Worst Features

Fender flares should be part of body steering kinda loose, could be tighter ride sometimes bumpy, but its a truck. Hopefully mpg improves with break in. Automatic could be smoother in traffic.

2006 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Regular Cab SB (2.7L 4cyl 4A)


Review

The Tacoma is very quiet and smooth. Comfortable ride but sloppy handling. Very little brake feel. The base model seats are absolutely miserable. The seat belt receptacles are too far over causing them to rub on my hip (I actually paid an upholstery shop to move the driver side over!). I'm a thin person, if you are heavy or wide you simply won't fit. The steering wheel does not telescope out far enough forcing you into an uncomfortable driving position. I have owned it 4 months and I'm already looking to trade it off because I just can't get comfortable in the thing. Too bad, too, because it seems well built otherwise.


Best Features

Smooth running, smooth ride. Seems like it will be durable. There is a quality to the way it runs and shifts you just won't find in a Ranger or Colorado. The cup holders will accommodate all sized drinks.


Worst Features

The seats are terrible. Come on Toyota, you can do better than this. Gas mileage averages about 23-24 on the highway. Steering wheel doesn't telescope far enough. Better brake feel. Tighten up the handling. Make it so it doesn't rev to 2500 rpm for 20-30 seconds at start up, this is annoying!

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


Review

Second truck issued, first was replaced using the lemon law. Current truck has clutch and 4x4 disengagement problems. I wished Toyota would have kept the Tacoma as a smaller truck... this would have helped with the gas mileage. I'm currently getting 21 hwy / 18 city.


Best Features

Nice ride for a truck, and I like the access cab design.


Worst Features

Cup holder too close to shifter - moving to second gear is hampered if a drink is in holder. Make clock and radio displays brighter in daylight conditions.

2006 Toyota Tacoma V6 4dr Access Cab 4WD SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Really nice to drive.The 4.0 is really quick. You have to get the TRD off road package to get the real nice interior and features. The four wheel drive is excellent in the snow. I am disappointed with how fast the bf goodrich tires wore in just the first 12,000 miles from all highway driving.


Best Features

TRD off road package, towing package, access cab, the bed and cargo securing ability. You have to get the adjustable cargo divider that fits in the side rails.


Worst Features

Better adjustable cup holders. Move the power mirror control from the dash to the door so you don't have to lean forward to adjust mirrors.

2006 Toyota Tacoma V6 4dr Double Cab 4WD SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Truck gives feel of a larger truck, plenty of room. V6 extremely strong; it acts like it's ready to jump upon request. TRD package gives truck nice stiff ride; it handles curves and bumpy roads nicely. Only had it a few weeks and I feel I made a good decision to purchase. All the truck you'll ever need for occasional hunting trips or to haul your gear.


Best Features

TRD package, sporty styling, automatic transmission, V6, 4 doors.


Worst Features

Improved standard audio system, and standard driver and passenger air bag system.
