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


My previous truck was a "plain vanilla" 1993 4-cyl 2-WD Toyota pickup, so this was quite an upgrade. Power windows! AC! Reviews describing as a car on the inside, truck on the outside are accurate. Enough power so far, and the auto tranny seems OK. A great all-around vehicle for driving and light hauling.

Best Features

Interior is great - well laid out, comfortable, and functional. Back-up cam is useful. Bed with a pre-installed liner and movable tiedowns will be useful. Ride seems quiet to me - only 500 miles so far.

Worst Features

Dashboard lights are always "on" as far as I can tell (but can be manually dimmed to "off"). As noted by others, the breaks are a little mushy, but work well once you're used to them.
