The Best All-Around Truck by Manz7 on 01/10/2009. Trim: 2007 Toyota Tacoma Regular Cab, Owned 2 years.
Pros: 2.7L perfect for this vehicle - 4 WD 5 Speed Manual trans. Perfect. My 4th Toyota Pick Up - 1987, 1994, 2000 and now 2007. This is my retirement vehicle - very dependable (all 4 of them). Nice bed - plastic inside (no rust problem). Lots of heat, AC works fine, CD player. Front shocks didn't leak out. Good MPG - for a 4WD - nice big tires - great underbody clearance.
Cons: Radio quit showing all the digits in the display - replaced on warranty - no problem. That's it ! No other problems. # 1 Quality vehicle. My only concern when buying was that it was assembled in the USA. After 2 years of use (new: 1-6-2007)- I have found that it is NOT a concern.
Overall review: It could only be improved with a carburetor - like my 1987 had. I know carburetors are out. Considering my age (60) - is why I still prefer to have old technology. I do own a 1946 Willys Jeep CJ2-A as my show vehicle. My 2007 Toy is my work vehicle.

Happy Toyota Customer by Jeff in NH on 12/30/2008. Trim: 2007 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab 4X4, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Great little truck. Zero problems even though I was pretty tough on it. Power and gas mileage were reasonable for a 4 cylinder 4X4 truck.
Cons: They're expensive, and the option packages are weird. Example: a $23,000 truck should have intermittant wipers as standard equipment (which are only available as part of the nearly $2,000 SR5 package). Composite bed is slippery.
Overall review: Sorry to hear that a few have had problems with theirs, but how many 1 point reviews does the same guy from Tenesee get to write? Hint: most of us are very happy with ours and there are one or two guys on here writing 99% of the bad reviews which may or may not even contain legitimate complaints.

You call this a truck??!!! by An MSN Autos Consumer on 04/24/2007. Trim: 2007 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab V6 4X4, Owned 1 year.
Pros: That someone at MSN is making money on the side because they are rating this truck so high.
Cons: $3,000 more than the Canyon and still got poorer gas mileage, no satellite radio, and a worse warranty. And get this: Toyota makes you pay even more for basic things like- a remote keyless entry, cruise control, intermittant wipers. Toyota poor customer service!
Overall review: If you want to be treated poorly, pay thousands more and still not basic items, have to pay for a tow truck if you get stranded, get a poor warranty, then go ahead and buy the Tacoma. Remember this when your Toyota salesperson is being arrogant.

They don't make them like they used to by Frank on 02/11/2007. Trim: 2007 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab V6 Auto 4X4, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: The interior layout is nice and I liked the rugged looks. Nice sounding stereo system. Good motor but requires premium gas.
Cons: Driver's seating position is poor. You're practically sitting on the floor. I was told it is ok to put in regular gas but be warned, you must use premium gas or the motor will start knocking and pinging. Do not have more than 3 people sit on the tailgate because it'll break! The truck looks rugged but it's not tough at all.
Overall review: Having owned two previous 4x4 Ext cab Tacomas (1996 & 2002) in the past, I was excited to get the new model but now I'm wishing I still had my 2002 Tacoma. Those trucks were just built better. I don't even know where to start with this one but I had issues after issues. Did I get a lemon, maybe or maybe not? It's funny because my uncle and two co-workers all have the newer 2005+ 4x4 Tacoma and we're experiencing the same thing! I went on a wheeling trip and went up a steep rutted terrain and blew out the rear end! My previous Tacomas never had an issue with that same hill. The bed is made out of some new kind of plastic material and not metal, I had a couple of friend's sitting on it the tailgate and then it snapped. Toyota didn't use a boxed frame for this truck and you can tell because you can feel the vibrations throught when you drive on rutted roads. My neighbor has a new Nissan Frontier and I should have gave that a look before I bought this truck.

Better trucks out there by An MSN Autos Consumer on 12/31/2006. Trim: 2007 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab V6 Auto 4X4, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Should have done my research first, now I am stuck with a truck that I do not like.
Cons: Poor gas millage 15mpg on a average, weak V6 with no towing capability, transmission hunts around forcing you to turn the over-drive off. The front end shakes, it would be nice if they could fix the front end problems and stand behind their product. The interior is cheaply constructed with plastic that is fragile and seat material that tears easily.
Overall review: This is a car with a bed, not a truck, do not take it off road, because the transmission is NOT built for any use. It shifts all the time and is not match for the motor. The V6 guzzles gas and has NO power for towing or any up hill driving. Not quite the infamous quality everyone says, thin sheet metal dents easily and cheap paint and glass.
