Don't underestimate this truck's power based on its looks. This is made to blow your mind. This can pull out a 3 ton SUV out of water with little issues involved. The car is quiet, almost too quiet to a point where I must check to see if the gauges are reading correctly. The power switch on the car is rather unique and the interior is spacious if you think about it. The exterior is nicely styled and you can do many things to customize it.

My dream truck

Wanted a Tacoma for awhile since trading in my '96 Ranger for a Civic. This one is fire engine red and looks really sharp. Acceleration is a bit sluggish for a 6 cylinder. The seats and interior are very comfortable with one exception: the door arm rest is hard as granite. Radio and speakers not bad for stock. Handles well in rain and windy conditions. Holds the road. Can't wait for a snow storm to really test it. Although I miss the gas mileage of the Civic this truck is a lot of fun to drive.

This has been a great truck so far. Couple minor complaints, the ABS system seems to kick in a little too much too soon. Sometimes when you turn the key to start it, it doesn't always fire right away. Possible fuel pressure issue. Also the upgraded JBL stereo isn't that great for the money. Other than those little things I like it so far.

I bought the truck in 2010 and so far it has worked out well. My only complaint is that it riders very rough on city streets. I tried adjusting tire pressure, to no avail. Mine is a four cylinder and gets poor fuel mileage for a midsize truck. All in all i am very happy with the truck.

This is the best and most comfortable pickup I have drove that gets any good gas mileage. I have the four cylinder and 2wd but does good in the snow. I wish it had a split bench seat but other than that, everything is superb. I like having the manual transmission and this is a good truck for everyday use.

111K so far so good

by from Durham, NC on February 25, 2015

Except for a couple of early recalls , this truck has been the epitome of reliabity for me. no Lexus but it does exactly what it's supposed to do and be.

This is my first toyota and p/u truck....and its frickin awesome.I got the tacoma prerunner TRD sport. I get consistent 20.3-20.6 mpgaround town and 23 highway. Real good for a p/u. Rides great looks great for a four door truck plenty of power. Plenty of cabin room, front and back seat. Also enough bed space if you get the 6ft bed. Only bummer I found is the tailgate doest have a lock.
