After lengthy research I purchased the 2013 Tacoma Double cab V-6. The ride was so smooth I had a hard time believing I was driving a truck. It also handles exceptionaly well for a truck. The seats are also very comfortable. This truck is a perfect combination for anyone who needs towing, hauling and passenger needs all in one vehicle. The only knock is the stereo system/radio. The base radio is not very good and lacks navigation or anything else for that matter. The bluetooth is nice but that is really it in regards to the stereo. The interior of the truck is a little dated but nice. If Toyota gave this truck a better radio and more features inside the cab I would give it 5 stars all the way around.

Tacoma-Still a Winner!

I replaced a 2012 TRD Tacoma 4x4 with this 2013 model. A few refinements, mostly in the transmission software (shifts smoother), interior electronics ( enTune) and brakes (more modulated pedal). Rides quieter, also-Toyota must have added more sound deadening material. Like most years, incremental improvements on a great truck. One gripe - on the TRD pkg, the took the Homelink out of the mirror for some reason. Now I have to go back to using my old push button opener. ;-(

I am on my third Tacoma with my current being a 2013. Obviously, I have been happy with the vehicles, however my current has a couple issues. First, the smog pump on these newer models is annoying. Everytime you turn off the ignition, you get this obnoxious grinding noise coming from the engine compartment for approximately 2-3 seconds. I have taken this to my local Toyota dealer and identified the culprit as the smog pump and said it is completely normal for 2013 and newer models. Completely normal? Who designs a vehicle in this manner? Secondly, this truck is noticeably more gutless then my previous 2006 model. I would think that performance would be improved as time goes by, but apparently that isn't the case with the Tacoma. Other then those two issues, I enjoy this vehicle. The overall styling/appearance, comfort and reliability are great!

Feels like a mid size truck, looks bigger

by from Reedley CA on December 13, 2012

I did not want big nor did I want small so I looked and drove the Tacoma. I uses this for Work (citrus/Ag) and play, pulling a boat. Has plenty of room to take people in and pulls the boat very well.

Love this truck-it fits me and does everything I need it to do. Best of all my wife says she is comfortable in too! I need to mention that it fits in my garage for a n empty nesteer downsized garden home-that's important! I have the 4 door TRD w/Navigation and would have bought the limited model if one had been available. Best mid-sized truck on the market.

Bought ours at dealer in Boerne,Tx. because of the great service dept. Would have put 200,000 miles on our last Toyota truck, but someone ran into it & totaled it out before we could. Plan to get 200,000 miles on this one. Have had good luck with Toyota products. Just keep serviced regulary like supposed too & they will last.

I have owned Toyota trucks all my life although reliability has been good, One thing that has not changed which is a total deal breaker is the steering vibrations/ shake issues have never got resolved.I owned a 2000 Tacoma which started this after new set of tires and no matter how many brands of tires I tried and road force balancing issues never got resolved, then I owned a 2012 which did this after 500 miles and dealer could not resolve it so I traded it in for a 2014 which I test drove for 20 miles smooth has silk and figuring it was just a bad apple so I purchased the 2014. I loved the truck until around 300-400 mile mark and it to started having vibration and steering wheel shake, which I'm currently dealing with dealer on and don't expect any miracles. I highly recommend buyers do there homework search internet forums talk to friends that own them if possible and be specific in asking question, it will save yourself time and stress. I do believe this should be a safety issue that involves a recall , Toyota corporation and dealer where I bought these trucks totally deny this has being a problem.

I have owned a Subaru Legacy a Nissan Versa and this truck (By far my favorite) I have owned this truck for a little over 2 years and just turned over 24000 miles. And I must say it is a perfect drive to work truck! Usually I have to leave early before any plows are out on the road and with my 2 year old set of snow tires on I have only turned on the 4x4 once. I have the base 2 door model with the 2.7 and on the high way I usually average about 21 or 20 miles per gallon, around town I average 18-19 I have had no issues mechanically however I did notice the OE tires are junk. Wore out by 500 miles of casual driving and I replaced with a set of aftermarket wheels and tires (265-70-17) and still use my steel rims for my snow tires (245-75-16) . Overall it was a perfect truck that I use as a grocery getter!

Ordered the truck from factory. It looks amazing! Its a great looking truck! Upon vehicles arrival, the drivers' seat fabric was loose...had to take it in to get fixed....had to wait for them to order new cover for seat. Worst feature of this 2013 Tacoma model is the horrible sound it makes when it gets turned off. The is something similiar to a jet engine powering down, followed by a loud puttering noise. Took it in for this issue also, dealer said its the design of the air pump, and that its completely normal. I am very dissatisfied by this explanation. The sound is horrible and embarrassing! If the car didnt look and drive so nice...I'd take it back...very bothersome!
