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


I drive 50-60K per yr and needed 4x4 truck so went with the Tacoma Access Cab 4cyl 5 sp man. I've been completely satisfied. After >10K mi I'm getting 24.8 mpg on 89 Oct fuel. While I haven't been in any serious mud, the 4 wheel drive has moved vehicle well through mud, even with OE tires. Manual trans was a little stiff, but has smoothed out with mi. I don't pull any heavy loads, only 14' fishing boat, and haven't had any problem with 4cyl making hwy speeds and hills. I'm 6'3" and there is plenty of room in cab for cooler, brief case, etc. Changing oil and greasing u-joints is easy. I've installed tool box in bed and hidden hitch. Good luck to us all.

Best Features

5sp man., electronic 4x4, MPG, composite bed with tie-downs,

Worst Features

Gas tank fill inlet cover needs to have release from inside. I wanted a white Tacoma, but getting an Access cab 4x4 in white was like finding an Ivory- Billed Woodpecker. Toyota needs to offer more paint options in this model and style. Thats about it.
