Just purchased number 3

by from Annapolis, MD on January 17, 2011

I first purchased a 2005 Tacoma Sport Dbl. cab 4x4 v6, excellent truck. My kids are currently still driving it, with last count 156,000+ miles on the ODO. I purchased a 2008 Sport Dbl. cab v6 which wa...
I first purchased a 2005 Tacoma Sport Dbl. cab 4x4 v6, excellent truck. My kids are currently still driving it, with last count 156,000+ miles on the ODO. I purchased a 2008 Sport Dbl. cab v6 which was totaled in a head on crash just a few weeks ago. I walked away without a scratch. I just purchased my 3rd Tacoma Sport 4x4 Dbl. Cab v6. The 2011 truck rides very smooth and quiet, the MPG's are at 17/21! The A/C is ice cold, zero shift shock on the transmission and very fast when you need it to be. Overall, very well made great looks with excellent fit and finish both inside and out."

Sure the price tag was a bit intimidating but once I got behind the wheel I fell in love. When I got it off road I knew that I made the right choice. I love my access cab 4x4. The 236 hp is perfect for making it a joy to drive both on and off the pavement and the TRD styling is pretty darn cool too.

I love this truck. It is actually a 2009 with 32K on it. The week after I bought it the wife and I took it on a trip of about 8 hours. Drives great, steering more like a sport sedan than a typical truck. Got 22-23 MPG in mixed driving. It just feels like it is higher quality than my old Ram. It feels SOLID! Ive put about 2500 miles on it since I bought it and if your looking for a smaller truck you wont find a better one.

A step up

The Tacoma is my third compact pickup. Compared to the two previous ones, the Tacoma is far more comfortable, has more power (both it and the predecssor are 4-cyl), and is way better designed in terms of how it uses both interior and exterior space. Lots of storage. I've only driven about 3K so far, so can't comment on dependability--but hey, it's a Toyota. My first Toyota, a 1980 Corolla, was last seen with 240K miles--still not using any oil.

Looks nice but the inside could use some upgrades. Doors do not lock when in gear, no place for the garage remote, not very fuel efficient for the size seems to like gas. For the money this truck is nice just could use a few interior upgrades to make it a 100%

2011 Tacoma 4x4 DC 6 sp manual, TRD Sport. Pros: easy to drive, easy to park in tight spaces, tight turning radius, good gas mileage of 17 average, great resale value of $26K on trade in. Cons: struggles towing a 3000 lb trailer, feels unstable at high speeds, seats too low and uncomfortable ( I am 5' 11" 170 lbs) manual trans 1st gear not low enough for off road hill climbs (auto trans is better for off road) Note: I went with the manual transmission for better perfomance, better towing power and control and didn't like the way the auto trans would always shift and lock up, I admit the manual was a mistake, should have got the auto.

This is the best truck I have ever owned. Have had several Ford trucks, from the Ranger to an F250. Have also owned a Chevy Suburban and GMC pickup. Only complaint is that I wish it got better gas mileage on the highway. Averages about 19mpg.

Purchased a 2011 crew cab short bed in Dec. I went thru the fleet manager, very nice experience. The truck has great power, handles wonderfully, and is very easy to park. My wife loves to drive it, she says it feels like driving a car. Gas mileage is about 16, but its still breaking in and I don't exactly baby the throttle. Bottom line..Great truck, streets ahead of my 2004 Ranger

#1 selling mid size truck

I never have been a small truck fan but my Tacoma is very nice. Coming out of a Ford F250 Diesel took time to get use to the small truck feel and ride. I like the way it sits high and it's not a 4x4. The only dislike is the seats. I wish they were electric and sit up a little higher off the floor.Tall peolple probably wouldn't like the small cab especially on long trips. Gets 20 mph mix hwy and city driving
