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

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!)

2009 Toyota Tacoma Regular Cab 4WD Review
says:
Just recently bought it, so too soon to tell. 4 cylinder seems to have a lot of pep. Regular cab feels very small compared to my previous truck. The access cab seems a lot nicer. Also dont care for the bench seat at all. Would definitely prefer buckets, or at least a split bench with console in the middle.

"5.9L V8 vs. 2.5L 4 cylinder"
Handling Ranked 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 2 Dr SLT 4WD Standard Cab SB better.

Looks/Style Ranked 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 2 Dr SLT 4WD Standard Cab SB better.
"Theyre both pretty good looking trucks, in my opinion. The Dodge is much more heavy duty though."
Front Seats Ranked 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 2 Dr SLT 4WD Standard Cab SB better.
"Loved the 60/40 split bench with center console that my Dodge had. Pretty much hate the bench seat that came in the Toyota."
Back Seats Ranked 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 2 Dr SLT 4WD Standard Cab SB better.
"Neither truck had a back seat (they were both standard cabs) but the Dodge had FAR more room behind the seat than what the Toyota has."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 2 Dr SLT 4WD Standard Cab SB better.
