4.0L V6 paired with an automatic transmission. The engine runs strong with no issues, the transmission shifts smooth through each gear, the 4x4 locks in and out with no problem and the A/C and heat work perfect. I would not hesitate to make a cross country run in this Tacoma, these things are very reliable. This is a nice and clean truck that is very affordable, and would make a very good candidate as a first vehicle for a son or even a daughter.

Just a great overall small truck. Much better than all the other options, american made or foreign. I'm a ford guy so I wish Ford could make a small truck this well. If I buy a large truck it will be a Ford, but for small trucks, you can't beat the Toyota
This is a great truck .I am really surprised at the room for a small truck.I also think the gas mileage is good, especially when you compare it to similar models.My work needs have changed but I would recommend this truck to anyone. This truck has high mileage but runs like new.
I LIKED EVERYTHIG ABOUT IT STYLE COMFORT EFFICIANCY GAS MILES INTERIOR DESIGN GAUGES SOUND SYSTEM TOWING FFATURE BED SIZE ALL IN ALL GREAT I WOULD CERTENLY RECOMEND IT TO SOMEONE THE ONLY PROBLEM I HAVE IS THAT PEOPLE WANT ME TO TRANSPORT ITEMS FOR THEM .
Liked that it sits high off the ground. Low-slung cars are hard to get into and out of. and this pickup is a lot easier for an older person to enter and exit. I also like that it's plain, work-a-day appearance makes it a little bit less theft-prone than, say, a Honda Accord.
