2008 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner V6 4dr Double Cab 6.1 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


I bought this truck in May 2011, hoping it would be a reliable and economical vehicle for me to keep for a long time, eventually becoming my #2 vehicle.

Ever since I got it, I haven't been happy with the way the engine idles.
It sometimes revs fast, and sometimes wavers up and down.
I also dislike the way the transmission shifts.
It can sometimes be harsh and/or wait too long to shift.

As of now, 3 of my automatic door lock mechanisms have quit working.
The A/C blower is noisy, and will occasionally stop working.
(If you kick it, it will work again.)

I hate the way the brakes make a "clunk" sound the first time you hit them after going in reverse.

Other than that, I've enjoyed it.
