"Love the 05, Tons of power , nice size, could use longer lasting tires from the factory. My last tacoma was a 98 with 185,000K on it and the only thing i had to replace is the starter,and muffler Got ride of it cuse the frame was rusting out, other than that, Toyota builds a great truck. Cant get any better than this!"
"...loses too much value with high miles even though everyone knows Toyotas last 500K miles. Getting about 18 mpg in town/23 hwy. Smooth ride, lots of pick-up. Gorgeous blue color. Brilliant, sexy looks. Gray sport interior is really nice but gets dirty. Excellent stability at high speed through curves. Feels super safe, would protect me in an accident. Short bed really needs a camper shell for use to be optimized, but long bed in the 2 door model is LOOONG. Two door style is awesome - sedan-like comfort. 120-volt electrical is handy, but truck must be actually running for use. Overall, wonderful truck but needs better mileage."
"Excellent sporty truck. Handles well, but Toyota could have increased the horsepower, and put larger brakes on it. I love the looks, and enjoy the performance. Couple minor things bug me. 1) The clutch pedal creaks, and the drivers's seat has a rattle. Other than that, I'm very satisfied."
"It's amazing to have a truck that looks great, runs great, very comfortable, and will still rival most stock "sport cars" on the road. I've had mine since 2005 and would not trade it in for the world!"
