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


I drive the hell out of this truck. Not too many complaints. Does a funny thing at stops, acts like it wants to keep going even though I have my foot on the brake. Almost feels like someone bumps you from behind. Compass/temp gauge went out and the airbag sensor lights stayed on was covered by warranty do not think this should be happening to a new truck. Have not had time to find out how much the Compass/temp gauge is going to cost. But as a rule it runs a lot better than the other truck I owned

Best Features

The body style it really has a lot of class

Worst Features

Fix all the little stuff like sensor lights, compass and gauges and the sound system. I purchased all the options on this truck these little things should not go out for the price it cost. Please check the braking system

Lots of people overestimate perfection to some godlike level. Relax, this is a good truck, just lay off the concept that life can be perfect. The compass/temperature gauge is the exact same unit that they put into the Ford F150s. It was built in Mexico. They used low temp solder that eventually melts. There is a guy in Tennessee that you can find on youtube or by googling. You take out the gauge and send it to him, for $150 he resolders in with good solder and replaces anything bad and sends it back within the week. I sell this truck and you see guys doing an emotional tap dance about it, it was the same at the Ford, Dodge and Chevy store I worked at. Get off of it, it will have scratches, need repair and cause you anguish from time to time. It is still a very good truck with an awful lot of parts and accessories available to excite you. A good tip would be to figure out how to grease your driveline, all the little fittings get ignored by the average oil tech. Don't sweat the numerous shakes, rattles, clunks, if its moving thats a good thing.

My family's always had terrific luck w/Toyota. I bought my 06 Tacoma Prerunner V6 brand new & love it. Though I also occasionally have that stange power surge "bumped" feeling at stops. Freaked me out a little.
