Extremely POOR Gas Mileage & Extremely UNSAFE Trk
By johnd38 on


2012 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner 4dr Access Cab 6.1 ft. SB (2.7L 4cyl 4A)


Truck has unpredictable hesitation / stall. This is not a good thing with oncoming traffic & is Extremely Unsafe. Toyota has been notified, but their response is to drive more aggressively (Unsafe). When you pull out into traffic & their is no response to the gas pedal, it is a very unsafe feeling.
I've had Tacomas in the past with marginal gas mileage of 25 mpg, but this is terrible - less than 20 mpg.
Toyota has gotten worse & does not live up to the high standards that it once had.
Very tinny when closing doors & Poor Dealer Maintenance.
Probably will not buy again unless they improve much more.
They are relying on past reputation instead of making a better vehicle.

Finally found a good Tacoma - 2007 Base model: Good gas mileage, reliable, better than the newer ones. Toyota lost a new car sale, but don't produce the vehicles customers want. Too bad, so sad. Guess they don't listen to customers.
Seems like there is No Engineering; only Sales & Marketing today.
Put some Engineering effort into this:
Improve Gas Mileage -30 mpg+ can be done & quit all the electronic giz wiz "features".
Get back to basics & make a good, fuel efficient vehicle again.
