Get A Tacoma And You Will Not Be Dissapointed! — I have had this truck for about a year and have LOVED every minute of it. Has a lot of power and drives perfect. It gets an average of about 18.5 mpg. The four doors give you plenty of room in the back for your family and is very comfortable on long trips. It does have a few small squeaks and rattles but nothing too bad. I LOVE MY TRUCK!!

Awesome — I miss this truck. Sold it to get an SUV for the wife when we found out we were pregnant. It was fun, useful, reliable, great in the snow. Low maintenance cost. High resale. Great towing capacity. Factory Tires weren't great but with an upgrade it was all there!

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Sweet — Towing Capacity is great for a V6. Excellent acceleration. Very fun to drive. She's a weapon! I wish it had leather seat tho. Interior kinda itchy. Stereo system is mediocre. Great gas mileage. I love the TRD Package. Go buy one!

2006 Toyota Tacoma — i was skeptical about buying a Toyota at first but when i test drove this i knew it had to be my next ride. there is so much you can do with this truck because its small yet very powerful. the only thing else i would buy except this would probably be a tundra.

Toyota Dependability — I've owned this truck since it was new in 2006. It has been a very reliable vehicle. What initially attracted me to this model was the sporty look. I also didn't mind that it was a 6-Speed manual shift vehicle. It's a great truck!

The Best Truck I Had Ever Owned — There are so many things that can be done to the Toyota Tacoma. Modifications are unlimited to your requirements. The Tacoma has been a very reliable truck for me when driving to and from work, or towing a trailer across the country and in rain or shine. I am definitely buying another Toyota Tacoma in the near future.

Nice Truck — It is my favorite truck as far as looks go. I like the take off power of the truck. It handles well in ice and snow. It is reliable. The oil filter location is awkward and annoying to change. The engine is pretty loud.

Great — This is a great vehicle, 4 cylinder engine which saves fuel but it is a 2.7 liter which gives you the power when required. Access cab is good to carry personal stuff inside the cabin. It has the long bed which is great to move things around.

Love The Truck — I liked everything about this truck. Great power, nice looking, very reliable, easy to maintain, never had any issues with this truck. This was my 3rd Tacoma and they are the best small trucks out there. They also hold their value very well.
