No More Fords For Me
By Randy on


2009 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner V6 4dr Double Cab 5.0 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


After almost buying a 2009 F-150 4.6L, I decided upon the Tacoma. I was leery about the 150's fuel mileage, and checked many Tacoma Forums for their mileage assessments. That being said, I have NO regrets at all. The Tacoma, to me, rides like a car with the benefit of a truck. I owned two Ford Rangers previous to this purchase, and the difference is night and day. Interior is superb and luxurious compared to the Ranger's plain design. Seats are more comfortable but the seats are lower, which is the only dislike I have about this vehicle. I'd much prefer to sit up a bit higher. I feel a bit like driving a Miata with my legs out rather than in a normal sitting position.

Best Features

Cockpit and instrumentation, soundproofing is outstanding.

Worst Features

The only negative I have is the lower seating, even compared to a Ford Ranger. I haven't yet been on a long trip, but I have a feeling my butt will be comparable to that on a long motorcycle ride. Rather numb after a while as your legs aren't positioned to take any weight off the seat.
