Good economical truck
By Raymond on


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


Have had 3 Toyotas 2 Tacomas and a T100 all have been good reliable vehicles. This access cab 4cyl is great riding and handling. There is some wind noise but not as much as the previous trucks. It's a truck not a Lexus. For those who are concerned about MPG this may be a truck to look at. I read many reviews and went on www.fueleconomy.gov and read the mpg's individuals were getting, not the EPA rating. They all said 21-22 something. I questioned it,but this does get 21 consistently with all in town driving with much stop&go. I am not punching hard on take offs but am not babying it either. Use it carrying wood for winter and it does it easily. Great lite-medium duty truck.

Best Features

Well equipped for base model vehicle, p/w a/c overhead compartments, console, mp3/wma good sound. Composite bed. MPG is surprising for a 4x4 truck w/access cab. Good ride, between truck and car.

Worst Features

Sliding back window on base models but I guess trade off for power windows. Intermittent wipers but is easy fix for relatively cheap. Look here if you want to change your 2 speed wipers to intermittent, did it and it was really simple http://www.toyotanation.com/forum/showt hread.php?t=188195
