2013 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab PreRunner V6 4dr Access Cab 6.1 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
The Tacoma Pre-runner V6 Access Cab truck is well powered and reliable. I purchased the 2-year old truck at 10K miles and now have 35K miles after 3-years. It does not have all of the bells and whistles of some of the other trucks, but it is well built. The truck is noisier that is should be. Some cross-winds cause a whistling noise, probably due to the rain gutters. The 5-year old Iowa truck has no rust problems. I keep a watch for side panel rust as most trucks start rusting there after about 4-5 years. The side body panels are designed and drain well. The truck is garaged overnight and the paint still looks new. The engine pings slightly on summer 87 octane fuel, so I purchase 89 minimum. This is the best overall mid-size pickup available when comparing ride, reliability, resale, and value.

Not once but twice my 2013 Toyota ran out of oil, no warning, no leaks. Vehicle was parked in my garage on a cement floor . Not do for an oil change for another 1,500 miles or more. Used the correct oil and filter. No warning, no light . Last time I smoked the engine. It had eighty thousand miles on it when it was lost. Garage stated no use in attempting repair, better to replace if one can be found.

the v6 is the noise king of all vehicles. engine thrashes like a 100 year old combine. real low quality front brakes. this truck is junk. had a 93 model & was 3 times a better truck. all the 4.0 engines are like this. Probably worst vehicle I ever bought. Knocking noise is on left side of engine . Not normal or it would be on both sides .

After owning a troubled GM truck for a decade, I had high hopes for this truck. Unfortunately it seems that Toyota has dropped the ball. Though a smaller engine than the 6 cylinder S-10 I owned, this 4 cylinder gets worse gas mileage. The ride is very choppy and the Dunlop installed tires seem very cheap. Why not Michelin Toyota? The exterior of the truck is stylish and the seats on the prerunner are very comfortable, but what is the deal with that cheap Entunes crap stereo? The sound is awful and the so called voice activation rarely works. I do like the space in the access cab and the warranty offered was excellent, but Toyota could do better.
