Great truck,equipment, surprisingly good mileage for a 4Ltr. I had a Ford Ranger before, but the Tacoma is a real truck, the Ranger, just a training truck.
Awesome mid-sized truck!
2008 Toyota TacomaSteve S. - SAINT LOUIS, MO12/11/2015
Great 4x4 system, nice clean simple interior, well thought out vehicle. If you do your own oil changes you'll be impressed with the oil drain hole that surrounds the filter. The oil filter is almost vertical, accessed from the top of the motor, there is a lip around where the filter seats, so that when you remove the filter the drips/flows into an outlet that you can place a catch can under. Beats an under the motor, oil going every where, when you unscrew the filter anytime.
Toyota Tacoma Overview
Unlike most baseline pickup trucks, the Tacoma offers both utility and performance on and off the road. Boasting up to 6,500 lbs. of towing capacity and a six-foot bed, this midsize truck is practical and stylish. Those seeking a traditional, affordable modern truck should consider the popular Toyota Tacoma.
Toyota Tacoma History
When the Toyota Tacoma was introduced in 1995, the Japanese auto manufacturer classified it as a compact pickup. Its design was intended to suit the needs of U.S. markets, where pickup trucks are also used as personal vehicles on
and off-road. The second generation is defined as a midsize pickup with a larger construction and is much more powerful than its predecessor. The third generation has an updated frame that provides more strength for the vehicle.
How It Drives
Taller drivers may feel cramped in early models, so more recent editions of the Toyota Tacoma may be more supportive. This vehicle can also handle off-roading better than most vehicles. The Tacoma frame is designed to be flexible in order to keep all four wheels on the ground on uneven surfaces and to ensure smoother riding when off-road.
Used Toyota Tacoma Value
In terms of reliability, older generation vehicles tend to have fewer problems and those issues can simply be addressed with replacement parts. The four-cylinder models will lose their value quickly, so if power is not an issue, then the lack of significant changes ensures that these models will still work for the intended use. Though anyone seeking the lift in power will have to pay for it, the lack of significant changes in transmission or most standard features will ensure that the Tacoma stands as one affordable truck in any of its years.
Toyota Tacoma Standard Features
Toyota Tacomas come equipped with a composite bedliner, a bed utility rail system, and standard steering. The V6 engine combined with 6-speed automatic transmission ensures enough horsepower to cap out at 25 mpg on the highway. The Tacoma additionally carries five people while some other trucks can only support two.
