2011 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab PreRunner 4dr Access Cab 6.1 ft. SB (2.7L 4cyl 4A)
The Tacoma truck is very reliable and dependable. I use the truck in my home inspection business and carry mainly ladders in the bed. I enjoy the bed tie-down system with sliding hooks along the bed rails. The cargo compartments in the side walls is a very nice feature. The truck has never broken down or had any problems in the 31K miles I have owned it. Maintenance requirements are minimal and mostly oil changes and drive shaft lubrication. The 4-cyl. engine is underwhelming. I average 18-19 mpg with mixed driving. Toyota quality is great. When it is time to replace this truck, I will replace it with another Tacoma truck. I just traded for 2013 similar truck with V6.

Bought my 2011 sr5 about a month ago. Did lots of previous research prior to buying it, fuel, reliability, pricing, etc. Month later, can't say enough of the Tacoma. Great mid size truck that stands up to all others with good gas mpg. Would highly recommend the Tacoma if your looking for a dependable mid size truck that delivers good fuel and pulling power for weekenders.
As trucks go, Tacoma is rated highly for its dependability. Time will tell

I have now owned 4 Toyotas. Excluding a late 80s base model Tacoma, this is the worst vehicle I have ever owned. I will be slow to purchase a Toyota again.
Cheap materials, cramped and awkward interior, an endless supply of mechanical failures. I am happy to say goodbye.
I spent hours haggling over the Cruise Control failing at 70. Toyota made every excuse yet blamed me & the terrain (small incline).
1 engine out of 12 takes synthetic. Of course my dealership filled it with standard and replaced it so the engine could sound like a VW bug for a while.
Two...yes TWO rear bearings, a differential and a front strut later and this has been in the shop more than my last 3 cars combined!
I purchased the vehicle because of the resale rates.
Plain and simple i needed an efficient truck to haul things now and again, and do light duty work.
The truck looks nice on the interior at first glance but you quickly realize everything is plastic.
This truck fulfilled my desire as one would expect any pickup would. That's about where my fondness ends.
Make a decent vehicle, Toyota.
You're slipping in to the mentality that quality doesn't matter.
While i can actually lean against this truck without it causing a huge dent in the panel, unlike my last Tacoma, i find this truck a far stretch from being a "quality" ride.

Love my truck, have had for 9,000 miles and I get 23 on highway and 18 in the city. Great off road. When towing a T@b trailer 1900 lbs need to down shift when going up Alaska mountains. If much heavier trailer I would suggest the V6. Pulls the T@b up mountains 65mph.
