Reviews for 2015 Toyota Tacoma

Overall Rating

4.2 out of 5 (20 reviews)

happy Tacoma truck owner

the staff inside from the cells to the service have been great Jim especially in service I mean nobody wants to go to service department but he truly took care of me really appreciate that I hope to do with them all the time

Pros

  • Interior Space: I've had a few passengers in the back seat to adults and child and everyone will seem to be very comfortable and very good access in and out
  • Reliability: Toyota very reliable vehicle

Cons

  • Cargo Space: really there's a lot to space and stuff so hard to say but who couldn't use it a little more compartments

- Reynaldo Palacios, 2015 Toyota Tacoma

Little beast worth every penny.

I shopped around a long time and walked of MANY car lots before I settled on my truck. When other sellers were doing bait and switch tactics, Carmax got right to the point and I got the truck I wanted quickly. First off, the Toyota Tacoma I got is a 4 cylinder which makes it good on gas even with the AC on. I LOVE the sliding back window because I can vent the air that way (and listen for noises from tires, drive shaft, etc) and my dogs love the window too. Mine also came with a Husky toolbox which is a huge win for my active life (and my dogs love it too when camping). It can get up and go if I kick it in but I don’t need to very often. It’s steady, reliable, quiet, has a great sound system with bluetooth and Maps even shows me where I parked since I’m paired to my phone. That feature saves the day in crazy downtown areas! It’s low enough to the ground but not low enough to suck exhaust fumes. It turns tightly in forward and reverse and mine has a hitch too which I love. The tires are pretty average and this truck is easy to find parts for that are fairly inexpensive. I also love that I can check all the fluids easily and do much of my own repair since the engine has some leg room. And last, I love that mine came with tie downs in the bed and a nice liner to protect it. This lady and her dogs love her little beast!

Pros

  • Cost to Maintain: Easy to find parts and they’re not too expensive.
  • Technology and Entertainment: Bluetooth for calls, music, and finding my ride with Maps app in bad parking areas.
  • Interior Space: I’m tall and there’s a lot of leg room as long as no one is sitting behind you in the extended cab area. There’s also plenty of room to load groceries/ animals in behind the front seats.

Cons

  • Seat Comfort: The seats are a bit rigid.
  • Visibility: There are some blind spots but a tiny mirror addition solves this easily.
  • Cabin Noise: It is a little bit loud compared to most vehicles but it’s not a major issue really.

- Jei Thompson, 2015 Toyota Tacoma

Does not meet expectations

Although the vehicle drives nice, the options leave too much to be desired For starters, no compass, no outside temperature gauge. No option for garage door opener, poor placement of cup holders, no power seat, no rear defrost and poor interior lighting. The back seat does not fold down, the bed has slick service, cannot drive in snow and tires need to be replaced with less than 30000 miles. I just hope the engine lasts

Pros

  • Braking:
  • Reliability:
  • Fuel Economy:

Cons

  • Interior Space:
  • Weather Versatility:
  • Dashboard:
