2007 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner V6 4dr Double Cab 6.1 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I'll start by saying that I've owned many Toyotas over the years and have been very satisfied with every one but this one. After 18k miles the engine began to knock loudly (piston wobble) and the tranny will kick after every stop (driveline lash). These traits all called "normal" by Toyota. These trucks do not represent the quality the brand has developed through the years. If you can live with a truck that makes a nasty knock at idle, shifts through the auto gearbox after a stop...only to thump you after finally finding first gear, chasing wheel balance due to the hub offset being whacked and always having steering wheel shimmy; this might be the truck for you.


Best Features

The truck looks great and initial quality was super. Good power and nice driving character. The back seat is usable. Good towing capacity.


Worst Features

Larger piston skirts/better fitment, fix wheel balance issues, more sound deadening in roof (very loud in rain), cargo light, better flex control in bed, refine driveline design, tailgate lock, seat material stains/snags easily, higher/ adjustable seat position, armrest cargo that opens from front.

Review

I bought this truck new. I am an artist and have a lot to move. I have moved 3 times using the truck and love it. The economy is good for a truck, especially on my long freeway drives. I was in an accident in the truck and was very safe. It is a wonderful truck


Best Features

I love the access cab doors that fold out and the moving tie downs!

2007 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner V6 4dr Double Cab 5.0 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Only thing I would have to change is the paint. Drives like a charm, reliability and drivetrain performance is great. Overall really happy with the truck.


Best Features

V-6 is a lot faster than I thought, controls great, lots of room.


Worst Features

Just the paint needs better quality, and speakers chatter if bass is too high.

Review

It's a jack of all trades vehicle. Plenty of room for the kids. Hauls all my stuff. Decent mileage for commuting. Has a somewhat bouncy ride but it's a truck and truth be told does ride better than most other trucks I have ridden in. Has really light and easy steering. Real easy to drive. The transmission is a dream. Smooth shifting and usually grabs just the right gear. You can slap the stick for quick acceleration. Tows my boat very easily.


Best Features

Reliability and drivetrain performance.


Worst Features

Front seat headrests push against the back of your head. Adjustable tilt headrest would be great. You cannot take a drink from a water bottle without turning your head sideways. I had to turn the darn things around backwards. The steering is wimpy and gets pushed around by wind.

2007 Toyota Tacoma V6 4dr Double Cab 4WD 5.0 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Overall it's a nice truck. Very comfortable, good power and lots of features. The stock suspension would bottom out with a load (400 lb motorcycle in the bed) but there is a service bulletin out to upgrade the suspension if you actually use it as a truck. Gas mileage could be a little better. I average 16-17 MPG, mixed driving and topped out at 20.


Best Features

Exterior styling, sliding rear window, bucket seats, behind the seat storage for rear seats, under-rail sliding tie- down system and traction control.


Worst Features

Auxiliary input jack, heavy tie-downs in the front of the bed, 4 wheel disc brakes (rear drums seem to get sticky when cold/wet)
