2011 Toyota Tacoma Regular Cab 2dr Regular Cab 4WD 6.1 ft. SB (2.7L 4cyl 4A)


Review

broken rear spring pack, replaced. headlights catch on fire, replaced. letter saying air bag needs replaced still waiting. air conditioner leaking Freon overnight empty, no one can find the problem, replaced the evaporator $1800 to replace a $190 part, nearly 10 times the cost of the part to replace it. very poor design. called toyota corp. less than usless. they made a note of it. if its out of warranty sell it fast

I sold it. researched Ford f150 bought one. the difference between the tacoma and the full size ford is amazing. 4 wheel disc, v8, 6speed auto/ tacoma tin box.

Review

This is the best all-around get it done truck. The 4 cylinder is adequate but a reliable and very durable powerplant. The truck is so tough ive loaded ton after ton of firewood in the composite bed disregarding the load rating and nursing the squatting truck home on the frame resting on the axle. Not a peep from her yet. These new competitor's trucks with steel and aluminum beds I don't know how they didn't catch on and build an indestructible bed like this. The turning radius is amazing for a 4x4 truck also. Tighter than my last Tacoma. The last PA winter we had here was also a true test for the 4 wheel drive as the blizzard we got here was 34 inches. The auto lsd can be annoying but was mostly effective. It can also be turned off as well. I plan to keep this truck for a long long time.

Review

I have been driving a Lexus so this comparison is slightly unfair, but I love the Tacoma. My only complaint is its power is not what I would have hoped for because when I towed a fairly large trailer that was under under the rated weight, truck struggled a little bit up the hills. It is also louder then my Lexus, no surprise there. All in all a great purchase.

Review

Overall the truck has been pretty good. The acceleration of the 4 cylinder in this model with the 4 wheel drive and 4 speed automatic transmission is poor, and fourth gear is way too high for this engine's modest power and torque level and the shift points are all wrong, in my opinion.

It always starts and runs well for me, but the blower fan has been replaced twice under warranty.


Best Features

Lots of storage places in the cab, and a lot of room behind the seats for a standard cab midsized truck. Composite cargo bed needs no bed liner to protect paint as a steel bed might. Good leg room. Tight turning circle. Very nice stock headlights for seeing well at night.


Worst Features

It it very reluctant to downshift when it is in "drive" and when it eventually kicks down the third gear it tries to get back up into fourth too early. The result is that going up even a gentle hill at 65-70 MPH or so, it will not maintain speed. When the accelerator is pressed hard enough for long enough, it goes down into third gear and accelerates back up to speed, but when the accelerator is let up slightly to keep that speed, it goes into fourth and slows down again. In order to keep steady speed on hills like this, it is often necessary to manualy shift into third gear and leave it there to the top of the hill. Terrible.
