2009 Toyota Tacoma V6 4dr Double Cab 4WD 5.0 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 6M)


Had to trade in my '01 F-150 for better gas-mileage. So far, the Tacoma is impressing me. It's not as tough of a truck as I'm used to (No TRD pkg.), but the double-cab has great passenger room for a compact and the composite bed is big enough for the things I need. Got the bed-extender just in case it was too short. The 6-speed is MUCH easier to shift than the Ford. Only had it a week, but I haven't had to pull into a gas station yet!

Best Features

Fuel economy, safety, 4-dr doublecab style, 6-spd manual, composite bed, clutch start shut-off, overall look and the back-up camera is great if you use it to tow.

Worst Features

Locking tailgate (they're gonna get stolen more with the camera in 'em!), and better wheel options on the SR5 pkg. (The steel wheels are awful.)
