'08 Taco — I love the rugged versatility, the attention to detail (especially with the many unlisted features on this truck) and the extraordinarily good gas mileage (22mpg city! much better then EPA ratings)

2008 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab V6 4WDReview

I Love This Truck. — This truck is awesome. I was going to buy one in about six months, but I just couldn't help myself. It has a lot of features, and seems more geared toward the offroad enthusiast rather than the street driver (which is what I wanted). Has a great towing capacity, and the 4.0L engine is much more powerful than the previous V6s used by Toyota in their Pickup/4Runner lines (i.e., you won't need the supercharger offered by TRD to give it some get up and go, but you might as well).

Pros: Roomy, comfortable, handles well, runs great.  Everything I'd want in a truck.

Cons: Mileage could be better, but it's not much worse than the car that I'm replacing, and is consistently getting the highway mileage even with less than 1,000 miles on it.

No auxillary hookup on the stereo.

Great Ride, Comfortable, And Power. — I had a Toyota 1994 xtended cab V4 for 13 years. Last week the engine blew at 177,000 miles. I decided to get a new truck. I now have a V6 Tocoma 4WD manual transmission. I like the comfort, power. It's a smooth ride and great acceleration. Good sound system. It's quite an upgrade from my previous truck

Owner for 0 years, 1 months

Miles Driven per Year:12,000

Pros: It looks great.  It's comfortable, and has great acceleration.   

Cons: Uses more gas than my old truck. Not made in green anymore.

Overall:

Toyota Reliability Shines — I enjoyed this truck's ride although a tad harsh. Fuel Economy is poor for such a small truck. The V6 is dated and inefficient but uber reliable. The tech is outdated as well but this was an 08. I recently bought a 2015 MUCH BETTER Technology and the SPORT rides better as well.. Toyota is resting on their laurels but the Nissan Frontier is a better choice on paper for a small truck today for the money, And I am not a Nissan fan at all. I love these little trucks. GM is not in the race IMO with the Colorado. GM has too many problems right now. I don't trust their designs and production for the long run. The Colorado looks bland and I just don't trust GM My Toyota Service Center is MUCH better and modernized. They discount everything for me having purchased three vehicles there. I would rather have an 08 Tacoma than a 2015 GM anything.

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

Pros: Toyota Reliability
OK Ride
Holds resale value

Cons: No BT
Terrible MPG Fuel economy is worse than Corvette
Need TSB for springs if you are going to carry listed weight

Sold>>>>>>hard To Give Up And Replace....very Hard Act To Follow. — I like driving a vehicle that does not depreciate and is extremely reliable. build quality is excellent. Has decent fuel economy when driving normally. Nice ride height, Very smooth for a truck. What can be said. Its a Toyota Tacoma. Never outdated. Never needs to be traded at wholesale prices. Never towed anything so could not rate that,

Pros: It's a Tacoma. RELIABLE.  No problems. Very carlike ride for a truck. Lots of power on tap when needed. Comfortable cabin. Build quality excellent.

Cons: Not a great vehicle for fuel economy but it's a truck. A tad long. and I have the 5 foot bed,
