    Transmission: Automatic Color: Silver Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.625 (40 reviews) "Looked at a lot of small pick-ups before settling on a Toyota Tacoma. Got the pre-runner extended cab, with a 4 cyl, 5 speed manual, and an sr5 package, very, very difficult package to find. Looks like a 4x4 but with fuel economy of 4cyl 2 wheel drive. No ball of fire off the line, but will cruise at 70+ MPH nicely. Plenty of low end power in 1st and 2nd gear for light towing chores. Fuel economy is supposed to be 25 highway, but best I've been able to achieve is 23 or so. Local driving in rural area yields 22 MPG. Pros=4 door access to rear seats, solid performance of 2.7 ltr 4 cyl engine, looks good, great ground clearance. Cons=plastic, plastic, plastic....lots of plastic..but I guess that's all new cars today...not very quiet at highway speeds, lots of wind noise. rough ride in off road conditions. Overall, I would recommend the Tacoma over most of it's competition, ie Ranger, Dakota, Colorado, only p/u close is the Frontier."

The Tacoma was in excellent condition and after adding 2K miles, I'm very happy with it. The engine pulls strongly with smooth shifts and the gas mileage was about the same as everyone else was getting with the 4.0L V6, 19+mpg mix driving. The interior is well desinged and comfortable especially in the back with the more reclined seat angle. There's also tons of storage space inside the cabin. So far so good...hoping it stays that way for all long time to come."

Vehicle Review: 4.625 (40 reviews) "Toyota has a rich history of producing reliable vehicles year in and year out and the 2008 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner is no exception. The big 4.0l V6 has impressive performance that cannot be outmatched by any other mid-sized truck. The Instrument panel is nicely laid out with ease of access for the driver without and distractions while driving. The interior details are simply amazing and provide an enjoyable driving experience. Handling on the Prerunner very slightly based upon the model purchased but they are all top quality. From the ground up this is a fantastic truck! You will not be disappointed with the investment!"

    Transmission: Automatic Color: White Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.625 (40 reviews) "Purchased my Tacoma in Jan. 09. Silver/graphite interior,4cil/automatic,reg cab,just over 7000 miles. I have had only 2 trucks in the last 28 years, a Toyota and a Nissan. I had been happy with the dependability of both. The reg cab Toyota is classified as a basic work truck. It is well suited for back and forth and light hauling. The heat and A/C are good. Visibility is very good, I added a stick on spot mirror on the left. Instrumentation is good -like the red aviation display color. Find it odd that panel stays on even in daylight? No intermittent wipers on this model-has not been a problem but I find it a step backward, should be standard. Sound system, 4 speakers,single CD player fine for average person. If you have a really big foot ,you might find the gas and brake pedal a little close together if you were wearing boots. I like the composite rear bed with track and tie down accesories. I bought a cargo net $39. to stretch across the back of bed to keep items from sliding. I like the interior, the truck seems solid with good fit. The engine, 169HP will get up to highway speed no problem. I'm still used to a 5 speed and so on occasion let my speed drop and find the truck bog and have to step on the gas to get it going or shift up. I added pin stripping $25. and a stainless tail pipe deco to personalize this truck. For the money, and my needs, I feel I made a good purchase."

So I thought since I want to get a Toyota I have to purchase my vehicle at a Toyota dealership little then I thought I see Carmax right next to Toyota so I told my husband lets see what Carmax has to offer. Little did we know we found the vehicle we have been looking for and with a very low mileage than the one I was going to purchase at Toyota. There was no hassle on nagging on the price and it was a fair price and very easy and fast transaction. The financing was very low and I was shown everything not like Toyota they mostly only offer there in house finance but nope I did qualify other than the in house finance. It was just an awesome experience and when I decide to purchase my next car I know where to go is Carmax."

I found it in this truck after looking at several models of full size trucks. The horse power is just right for this truck and I don't feel overwhelmed by its size. It is easy to drive and you feel its presence on the road. This will be the first and last truck I own."

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."

It was perfect for what I wanted

2008 Toyota Tacoma Craig Larson - Burbank, CA 03/07/2016

It is well made. Toyota has a reputation of making good reliable vehicles. It is solid and quiet.

Good value in a basic truck

2008 Toyota Tacoma Bill DuPre - Raleigh, NC 04/29/2016

Good mileage for a pickup, fairly comfortable, reliable (so far), lots of utility.

2008 Toyota Tacoma Overview

The 2008 Toyota Tacoma is a midsize pickup truck that not only is built for towing and hauling, but is easily maneuverable on city roads. Despite its tough personality and sturdiness, it provides a comfortable ride.

2008 Toyota Tacoma History

The 2008 Toyota Tacoma enters its model year completely unchanged from the 2007 model.

  • The Toyota Tacoma was first introduced in 1995.
  • The second-generation debuted in 2005, redesigned for a new generation.
  • The 2008 Toyota Tacoma was introduced as a part of this second generation.

How It Drives

The 2008 Toyota Tacoma cruises well down highways and has a comfortable cabin, which is a pleasant surprise when compared to other pickup trucks. One of its greatest strengths is its versatility and control. It has responsive handling and steering, no matter the landscape. Its off-road capability and towing capacity provide plenty of utility too. It's pretty light and fast for a pickup.

Used 2008 Toyota Tacoma Value

The 2008 Toyota Tacoma faces stiff competition. Though it's not quite a style leader, the Tacoma does hold functionality over many of its competitors. It comes with many trim levels and feature packages to ensure that drivers will be able to find the exact Tacoma they are looking for. Additionally, it has larger seats with plenty of power adjustment options.

Design & Performance

The Toyota Tacoma offers many choices. You can go for the base body style or upgrade to the Double Cab Long Bed, select front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, or opt for a four-cylinder engine or a V6. The many different combinations ensure that used car buyers can find a model to suit their needs and preferences.

At its entry-level, you get a Tacoma 2WD Regular Cab. It has the following features:

  • Full-size spare tire
  • Four-speaker sound system and radio
  • Rear mudguards
  • Optional air conditioning

Extended Cab and Crew Cab add more standard features than the base model, such as:

  • Upgraded seat fabric
  • Power windows, mirrors, and door locks
  • Six-speaker audio system for the Extended Cab; seven-speaker audio system for the Crew Cab
  • All optional features from the base model

Additional Tacoma packages include the PreRunner and X-Runner. PreRunner vehicles are front-wheel drive with the same higher stance that all-wheel-drive vehicles tend to have. X-Runner vehicles have the best on-road experience for the class and are only offered with the Extended Cab style.

Powertrain & Engine

The base engine is a 2.7L four-cylinder engine is paired with a five-speed manual transmission. A four-speed automatic is also optional if you don't like driving manual. The Tacoma also has a 4.0L V6 engine as an option for specific trim levels - it's standard on Crew Cab body styles and on all-wheel-drive Extended Cab body styles. The V6 engine is typically paired with a six-speed manual, but a five-speed automatic can be swapped in as well.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

The Toyota Tacoma has a few different body styles: Regular Cab, Extended Cab, and Crew Cab. Depending on your preferences, you may want to upgrade to Double Cab for more room and comfort - this body style is longer and offers more back-seat comfort. When you compare the Double Cab body style with the other pickups, you'll notice that it's roomy enough to outright beat the other midsize pickup trucks and even compete with some sedans.

Though not many things have changed since the 2006 Tacoma, the 2008 Tacoma has paid special attention to interior comfort.

  • The seats are adjustable, larger, and quite comfortable.
  • There are body style options for efficient use of the back seat space.
  • There are plenty of feature options hosted in the different trim levels.
