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


I got out of a big truck (Titan) and into a little truck (Tacoma) to better fit into my garage. What a mistake. It turned out to be one of the most uncomfortable vehicles I have ever owned. The driver's seat was like sitting in a hammock with my rear end sitting in a depression and my thighs being elevated. Not good for extended drives. The back seat was not overly comfortable according to my wife. Fuel economy was not impressive, 17.5-18 mpg. Paint started out looking really nice, but ended up being very susceptible to chips and scratches. The steering was very vague, with very little road feel, and tended to wander. Soft suspension with any kind of a load. Lots of road noise.

Best Features

Good storage, sharp looking, mechanically reliable

Worst Features

Telescoping steering wheel, MP3 or IPOD auxiliary port in radio
