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


Highly recommended. After owning 3 Chevrolets, a Nissan, and a Mitsubishi, I can say that the Toyota takes the cake. This truck is meant to be a truck. It doesn't have all the frilly features you will find on other brands, but you won't need them, trust me. You are buying a truck. The ride is sturdy, noise kept to a minimum, the seats are comfortable and both front and rear seats have ample leg and headroom. If you are considering a pickup, Tacoma will satisfy your needs even if you are hunting a full-size. I wouldn't recommend it for towing anything over 5,000 lbs, though. It can handle the PULL, it's the stopping that becomes tough. This is my first non 4x4, and I can say so far so good.

Best Features

Sits like a 4x4 without paying for it. Rides comfortably on long trips. Performs the job I want it to do. Tiedowns on rail system are awesome. Storage in the cab is a lot more than you'd expect. Layout is well thought out without having to upgrade packages. Gas mileage vs. previous vehicles.

Worst Features

Short bed could use another foot in length. Make receiver hitch standard. Brakes SQUEAL in reverse each morning. Stereo needs a little more UMPH. Raise rearview mirror by 6 inches. Headrests in back make rear window useless. Toyota engines are louder than other brands at idle, but not a real issue.
