Toypta Tacoma

This vehicle seems to be an outstanding vehicle for its class. The only reason that I'm not giving it five stars for comfort is that it rides like a truck -- which is what its supposed to be, but quite comfortable for a truck. The other four star rating I gave it was because it was not available with a manual transmission. Again, it's a truck, not a car and trucks, as working vehicles should be available with a manual transmission -- but people today don't want to actually have to DRIVE a vehicl.


Transmission and plastic trim problems

Shifts hard, lurches, not very enjoyable. The plastic trim around the mirrors and the front cowl have melted due to the heat from the sun. I have the only melting truck in the neighborhood.


Best resale value vehicle ever owned

I bought this truck new after major styling change in Tacomas and traded in a 2008 Tacoma SR 5 and getting back 88% of what I paid for new in 2008. I've had no problems with this 2016 so far and never did with 2008 except fir window washer issue.


Great Truck !

This is my second Tacoma,2016 Limited, first Gen 3, happy with all aspects of Truck! Have read a lot of reviews that it is underpowered before I got it, but it has just as much get up and go as my 2009 Tacoma ! With nice options and smooth ride! Much better gas milage too !


Worst vehicle I ever owned problems after problem

It’s been in the shop about 25 times about the engine and transmission and electric It’s also had three new batteries and now having problems again they said they can’t find nothing I know there lying to me now the rear bearings goes out in March and sitting here again there saying the rear bearings when out again in September 1 2020 I’ve told the people where I bought my truck and paid cash brand new they would not help me I got totally screwed on this truck this truck is falling apart I had a 2002 Toyota Tacoma never had a problem So you tell me what I have


I am enjoying the truck so far

Good mileage for this type of vehicle. Runs good and has enough features to make it an enjoyable truck to own. I would buy another one.


My second Toyota truck.

300,000 miles on my last Toyota truck so I purchased again. This is a very nice truck so far. Wish the seats were a little more stain proof. But the air conditioner is great, ha ha. It has a nice interior over all. It’s very roomy. The gas mileage is very good.


Has flaws from the factory

Love my tacoma. Has flaws. Tranny slips on down shift. From the factory. Tailgate EZ assist last a year if used. Tailgate bushing same. Wear out fast. Not cheap to replace. Frame rust. Again flaws. Toyota will not help customer to address issues. Dealer says trade.


Most dependable brand of vehicles on the road.

Very comfortable and dependable, easy to maintain. Really great gas milage for an off-road truck. Always complimented by other motorists. Big enough to get you wherever you want to go, small enough to park at the mall.


Love it!

Enough legroom, but not as tall as a full size truck. Drives and rides like an SUV. This is perfect for the person who likes the convenience of a truck, but not the low gas mileage or higher price of a full size. Nice features and fairly comfortable. Very happy with it.
