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


Review

I bought a used 2006 Tacoma with 109,000 miles on the 1GRfe engine.
My Tacoma had one previous owner who maintained the truck well.


After 3500 miles, I have had no problems other than having to recharge the A/C, a job I did myself in 20 minutes.
Every gauge works, even the thermometer and compass.


I am not a speeder and I am easy on my truck.
I consistently get 20-21 miles per gallon on the highway.
I don't know my city mileage .

I hope the aluminum block V-6 can match the durability of an iron block power plant.


I like my truck and expect it to carry on the Toyota reputation for reliability.


Best Features

Sharp, aggressive styling; comfortable seats, simple dash; easy-to-read instruments; easy to maintain.


Worst Features

Tailgate is a bit weak; sturdier sheet metal; better paint (chips easily); better radio controls (tuning knob is too sensitive to touch).

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


Review

Okay, I have what some people may call "car issues".
I am 33 years old and on about the 40th car.
Six months ago I bought a 25k mile 2006 with a factory warranty.
I am totally not a truck guy and could not see myself driving an F-150.
But the Tacoma is not a truck for us.
Its the Ultimate Family Vehicle.
We go camping, lot's of room with tonneau cover, it can tow, it fits 4 of us comfortably, and I can get stuff from Lowe's.
By the way its very reliable and overall feels very solid.
I can't believe that my top favorite car out of Acuras, Bmw, Saab and a bunch of others and it's a "truck"...no, it's an..."Ultimate Family Vehicle".

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


Review

The only bad thing about my truck is the poor fuel economy. I get about 19 mpg. Other than that it's a beast. Back seat fits adults just fine. I have pulled out several lifter 4x4 diesel trucks out of the mud, snow, and sand. Pulls loads great. 4X4 like no other and it soaks up the bumps great!


Best Features

turn knob 4x4, MOTOR!


Worst Features

weak rear stock suspension

Review

Unfortunatly I was in a very bad accident with my 2006 Toyota Tacoma TRD Offroad. It was the best car I have ever purchased. I have to say it was my Tacoma that saved my life in the head on collision. I was hit head on by someone who jumped the double yellow and I managed to escape with a broken leg and a messed up knee. No head, back or neck injuries.

I used my truck everyday to and from work, on and off the beach towing my pop up camper trailer and boat trailer, snow, rain with no problem ever. I never had as much as a flat tire in my truck. I would recommend this truck to anyone that ever goes off road or just likes having a small truck that drives like a big one with out the gas.


Best Features

The 4 wheel drive capability


Worst Features

It could use a bigger bed option and bed tie downs should be standard.
