2009 Tacoma Prerunner 4cyl, Manual 5spd
By n2wood on


2009 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner 4dr Access Cab 6.1 ft. SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)


Purchased in Dec 2009.
Good looking truck.
I have pampered truck for 48 months.
Have same problems with radio as other owners - turns itself off and on in extreme cold or hot temps.
Toyota appears to have resolved that problem after 2009.
Just turned over 35,000 miles on odometer and clutch has started to slip.
It is not operator error.
I had a 1990 Toyota 6cyl, manual 5spd truck for 16 years and never had to replace anything, but starter and timing belt.
Based on my google search, the problem is the clutch made in Mexico.
A replacement AISIN clutch, made in Japan, appears to be reliable.
Normal mpg has been 20-23 with non-alcohol gas.

Best Features

Appearance, comfortable.

Worst Features

Clutch and radio are definitely problems with 2009 model.
