Excellent Little Truck — A nice looking vehicle that can carry moderate loads. Comfortable and practical interior. Good road handling manners. Weak 4-cylinder engine - have to really push it at highway speeds. Recently purchased, and hoping for good reliability - want this truck to last 10+ years.

Best Midsize Truck On The Market — I've had my Tacoma for a little over a year now and use it as my farm/work truck. It's been loaded down with lumbar, firewood, concrete, cinderblocks, you name it, I've used it to tow heavy trailers, I've had it in the mud, and I've had it on the highway. These are great all around trucks they are small enough to be easy to drive and park yet they are very robust in design. They are great off-road and have impressive towing capacity. The looks are sharp and there are tons of aftermarket parts if you want to customize them along with a very strong user community. They are extremely reliable and Toyota offer a 2 year maintenance program to cover all you basic maintenance. The four door has a spacious interior and the seats fold down for additional storage while not in use. They have plastic covers and an innovation storage compartment design behind the seat to add even more function. Needless to say I love this truck.

Pros

Comfort, Styling, Handling.

Cons

poor stereo audio, bluetooth ring sounds like a tin can.
Worst is the annoying sound every time Ignition is shut off.  Like a starter sound and bit of air suction relief.

Beware Of Noise After Turning Off Ignition — I truly hope Toyota seriously looks into the after Ignition turn off annoying noise issue . As I have read several other owners with the same type of experience. Perhaps a Recall would justify Toyota Corporation correcting this situation on the new 2013's. Other than that this '13 would be great.

Love The Toyota Tacoma — This is a my third Toyota and I am hooked. This model is much newer since my last purchase of one in the 90's. I must say that the truck is a bit bigger than I remember or perhaps I am shrinking...

Great Truck — Love this truck. Gas mileage is OK (other than my Prius....). I use this truck to daily activities. I added a Leer cab over the bed. Lots of storage in back and under back seat. Great suspension. Great for long trips.

Looks, comfort, reliability, awesome resale, excellent handling on the road and a very capable off road vehicle.

Cons

Lacks some technology

Awesome — The truck is perfect. Small pick up trucks are the best for a utilitarian that needs it all. This truck rides great on the road and is excellent off road. The truck is unstoppable in the snow and the reliability is top notch. I get great gas mileage out of this truck, as long as I drive conservatively. Great power, the truck will tow 6500 lbs without the slightest issues. The build quality is what you expect out of a Toyota. I totally recommend this truck and will always be a Tacoma fan for life. Toyota makes the best vehicles and this truck is living proof.

Very Stylish For A Pickup — Like the color and styling of the whole truck. The towing abbillity is good for small trailers and the comfort is ok. I would recomend this truck to anybody for every day use its very dependable. Toyota has really come a long way as far as rust prevention also.

Fun Truck! By dipalma2008

Wish it had another set of doors and larger second row seats. It needs weight in the back when it snows or if its slippery outside so its encouraged to have sand bags in the back to help with weight. Read More
