2018 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off Road 4dr Double Cab 4WD 5.0 ft. SB (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

When I picked up the new Tacoma it pulled to the right and the steering wheel was clocked way low to the left. Took two trips to the dealer to get the alignment fixed. The sill guards all stated to bubble and peel off within the first two months. At 5,000 miles the truck was almost unstoppable. When you pressed on the brake pedal it pulsated and the truck vibrated like it had hit a curb. The rear drums were out of round. Dealer said mos 2018's are like that. Refused to put new drums on, instead turned the original ones.

2018 Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport 4dr Double Cab 5.0 ft. SB (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I come from a 1st generation Tacoma with over 450xxx miles and it was still running strong. I got this 2017 TRD Sport 4x4 for about a year 1/2 now and totally love it. Toyota is well known of producing great trucks and this is not an exception.

2018 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off Road 4dr Double Cab 4WD 5.0 ft. SB (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I got this truck for two main reasons: reliability and the styling. Both of which I believe were best in class. It's not for everyone. If you need the full size truck get the full size. I'm doing enough city driving that it'd be an inconvenience. Tough to tell if transmission issues are a problem. It takes time for the software to learn your driving habits. I've gotten use to it. You just need to be more purposeful in how you control the car. Overall I'm very happy with the purchase and can't wait to put mods on it.

2018 Toyota Tacoma TRD PRO 4dr Double Cab 4WD 5.0 ft. SB (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


Review

First, remember that it is a TRUCK, made to do truck jobs. If you want soft riding, go buy a car or a suv. The TRD Pro is awesome, it saved me from having to do all the research and installation of off road parts. Second, buy a manual. Shifting gears makes you feel more in tuned with the truck and it is your fault if you are in the wrong gear not some pre-mapped automatic (I owned an 2017 automatic before I ordered the Pro, also use the ECT button). I also own several other older truck models that you can not wear out (82-270,000, 84-290,000, and a 92-350,000) all are simple, rugged trucks. I have had no reliability at this time with close to 16,000 miles on it and my dealer has been the best. I got a good deal and their staff and mechanics are the best

2018 Toyota Tacoma SR 4dr Access Cab 6.1 ft. SB (2.7L 4cyl 6A)


Review

This is my fifth Toyota pick up, my last being a 93 t-100. with 204,562 miles on it. I wish i never purchased this Tacoma, the automatic transmission is terrible, it slips in between first and second. continually shifts up to sixth and down to fifth or fourth. Dealer says its normal and they won't even look at it. Very hard to get in and out of, ride like there no springs on it. I hate this truck so bad that after one month and 1400 miles i'm going to trade it in or sell it and buy something else. I wish i never sole my old T-100 but rust was taking over.
