    2009 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab — 4 Cylinder engine makes it GREAT on gas but still remains a truck that you can pile stuff into. 5 spd manual transmission makes it very fun to drive. No problems with it. Great styling. Only downfall is the factory rims.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: 5 spd 4 Cylinder GREAT ON GAS!

    Cons: Factory rims

    Black Beauty! — It's black and it is named black beauty! It drives smooth, it has a newer design then the old toyotas in the 90's, it gets about 21 miles per gallon. it isn't too expensive to fix, it can move you places with out needind someone else to move your stuff.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It gets me everywhere!

    Cons: it can be too big.

    Barcelona Red 2009 Toyota Tacoma — Acceleration, braking and Handling are great. Built very well, solid with no squeaks, rattles, etc., and takes bumps like a car. Good looking vehicle both inside and outside, nice package with bedliner, JBL stereo, back up camera in rearview mirror, etc and too many other features to mention. (SRS5 package) Gets 25 mph (2.7 L 4 Cyl) city and highway combined ,no maintenance needed so far. Fun to drive. Just a very solid and good looking medium size truck.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    It'll Be My Favorite Toy For Many Years To Come. — I'd say it drives like a car, but you don't feel the potholes nearly as much. Great acceleration, braking and handling. Even smooth at high speeds. Tons of muscle power, and practically flawless sturdy build. I get compliments on it all the time, and the interior puts most "luxury" cars I've been in to shame. Is it fun to drive? Oh yeah. I enjoy my commute to work now!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Many standard features that aren't standard elsewhere.  Backup camera and power outlet in the bed are nice touches.

    Cons: Small gas tank for the MPG it gets. Power from seats would be nice.

    Drives Like A Car — Drives like a car. Can tow up to 6500 lbs. fun factor? It is not called a Toy for nothing, it is a big toy to play with!! The best of both worlds: comfee as a car, tough as a truck.

    Pros: Drives like a car

    Cons: Drinks like a truck!!

    09 Tacoma Prerunner Access Cab Sr-5, 2.7 L, Man Trans. — Build quality - Bad radio from the start. Turns off and on at will, changes radio tuning at will, mostly when hot and especially over bumps when hot. Waiting for replacement to come in under warranty. Told it could be a while as bad ones get refurbished and sent back out to replace other bad ones...problem appears to be not uncommon from what I can tell. Update - radio finally swapped out with refurbed one after over 2 months. And this was just before all the acceleration and stability issues that have come out on other models. (Seems a rash of quality issues/hiding problems going on corporately to me). Now I received recall notice for floor mat/gas pedal (there's plenty of clearance between them in my truck) and a mod to make sure if the brake is pressed, the gas will release. Performance - 2.7 in this size truck won't win any acceleration contests, but it helps on gas mileage. Have to downshift more often to accelerate than I've been used to in other vehicles owned. So far averaging 22 mpg in mixed driving. Highest 23.5, low 21. They really fooled EPA for that high sticker mileage which helped me greatly purchasing this under Cash for Clunkers by trading in a worn out 95 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Suggested improvement - really give those who aren't into rapid acceleration something to really love...4 cyl diesel with good performance (turbo?) for even better fuel economy would be cool.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Ride height, safety features, decent gas mileage, fairly comfortable up front

    Cons: Radio problem from day one, slow acceleration in in 5th gear (so downshift!)
