Reviews for 2018 Toyota Tacoma

Overall Rating

4.8 out of 5 (17 reviews)


great mileage and easy to upgrade for not a lot of money, every aftermarket part is available online! this truck was like new, the interior and paint were pristine. it had brand new tires that CarMax had installed, but I replaced them with new TRD rims and larger tires just for the look! the vehicle has been excellent as expected and the sales team at the Gainesville center was fantastic! this is my 3rd vehicle purchase from CarMax and 2nd from this dealership. they really make it easy and hassle free.


  • Reliability: Toyota is excellent
  • Cargo Space: very roomy with the crew cab, the bed has a tie down system that works great.
  • Value: they hold their value


  • Power: the 4 cylinder engine is not recommended for towing, but is fine for regular drivers and mileage.

Best Midsize Truck on the Market

Best midsize truck on the market. My family has been driving Toyota trucks for generations and we usually only have to buy new ones every 20-25 years. 500k+ miles on every one without issue.


  • Dashboard: Dashboard layout is simple and utilitarian while also being sleek and comfortable, which is what most people in this target market look for. High quality tech that serves a purpose well while not being unnecessarily complicated or gimmicky
  • Fuel Economy: With a tonneau cover, I get around 25mpg average.
  • Interior Space: A lot of space for the size of truck. Especially in the cab. Feels like the same cab side as a Silverado or Ram 1500. I’m 6’ 4” and have plenty of headroom.

Incredibly capable truck

Not everyone needs a mid-sized pickup, but if you do, it's tough to beat a Tacoma. Mine is an SR5, 4-door with long bed. Can't say one bad thing about it. Has been awesome in the snow and ice, is great off road and surprisingly great on road. No true cons.


  • Ride and Handling: Very stable and comfortable. Corners well
  • Cargo Space: Having the longer bed is really helpful for hauling stuff (lumber, hay, etc.)


  • Fuel Economy: It does consume a fair chunk of fuel, but I knew that would be the case before my purchase
  • Technology and Entertainment: Toyota Nav leaves a bit to be desired. Having AppleCar (or whatever it's called) would be a nice upgrade
