Fun to drive
After 20,000 miles, my Tacoma has been entirely trouble-free and absolutely reliable.
I bought my well maintained 2006 Toyota Tacoma TRD in December 2010. I bought the truck at a Toyota dealer. My truck had slightly over 109,000 miles when I purchased it. The odometer now reads 129,000+.
My Tacoma has been reliable. There have no mechanical or electrical failures. I have spent money only on oil changes and new tires.
The 4.0 V-6 engine has ample power for my needs. My highest highway mileage, at a steady 65 miles per hour, has been 22 MPG. The engine does not use oil between 5,000 mile oil changes.
The interior is simple, just the way I like. The adjustable seats are comfortable and do not induce fatigue on long trips.
The is a slight vibration when accelerating in all speeds, but so far the vibration has not affected reliability. I corrected a slight "bumping" sensation when stopping by adding helper springs to the rear leaf springs.
At cruising speed, the truck is quiet and smooth. The V-6 provides ample passing power in the 60-80 miles per hour range.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
