Great Truck, But...
By Steve from Wisconsin on


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


I have the 2-wheel drive PreRunner with the TRD offroad package and locking rear differential, 4-wheel ABS with electronic brakeforce distribution and brake assist. All in all, I rate this truck the best-engineered vehicle I have ever owned--a wonderful piece of work. It is sheer pleasure to see the intelligence used in its planning and execution. But I have traded it in after two years of ownership (for another Toyota) because it is dangerous on slippery roads. I have had multiple spinouts on snow, even when proceeding slowly and carefully. (The only other minus is the mileage, but I was fairly warned, so can't complain.) This 2WD isn't for snow country.

Best Features

Great engine, handsome styling.

Worst Features

I'm tall: 3 or 4 more inches of legroom would be nice. Once seated in the cab the headroom is fine, but I have to duck to get in. The grips help, but a higher doorframe would be better yet. Track-and-cleat tiedowns in bed are a good idea, but a bit flimsy: series of tough D-rings would be better.
