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.
The jury is still out...
2016 Toyota TacomaTOY TAC OWNER - Phoenix, AZ07/03/2017
If there was a 'maybe' response, I'd choose it. The ride is tolerable. The TRD Off-Road package (with 4WD) is very capable off-road. Handling is not bad for a truck with an off-road oriented suspension and off-road tires. It is a maneuverable package and fits fairly well in tight spots.
Fuel economy- I'm unable to hit the combined EPA rating. My highway mileage averages about 18-19 MPG driving slow. I don't tow. I usually have about 50 lbs worth of gear in the bed.
Power is not bad. However, it feels like it is all in the higher rev range.
In the 25k miles I've had it, one of the rear brakes leaked. The transfer case leaked. The power steering rack had to be replaced. One of the rear back-up sensors failed and had to be replaced.
Awesome Reliable Truck

The 2015 Tacoma is the final model year for the proven 4.0l Toyota Tacoma. Because there is no replacement for displacement I decided to purchase the 4.0l. Don't take my word shop for one in the free market and you might wind up paying more for a used one than a new one.
