Great truck! by Poe on 12/20/2012. Trim: 2013 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab V6 4X4, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: This truck handles almost as good as my Camry that I traded in for it, and it almost gets the same gas mileage. This week I had a chance to test it out in some major snow and it moved and handled through it like a dream. No sliding, or slipping and I felt comfortable and safe as it ploughed through the snow leaving other cars sliding to the side. The controls are simple but easy to locate and operate and the seats are very comfortable and supportive. I love how I feel in this truck and like the way it sits up high. It isn’t so big that I have to look for two parking spaces when I pull up somewhere, but yet it has the power to pull what I want.
Cons: The Bluetooth seems to be giving me some trouble and I am going to play with that more this weekend and figure out if it is the car system, or my phone. I would have liked some kind of step to get up in the back of the truck when the tailgate is open, but that is a minor concern.
Overall review: Nice looking, solid truck. I got the TRD sports package and love the way it looks.

Gotta Love It. by BuzzKill from Houston on 01/24/2013. Trim: 2013 Toyota Tacoma Regular Cab 4X2, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Love this truck. It is extremely well engineered and put together. I owned American trucks until now, but no more. Great fuel economy with the manual transmission. Turns around in small area. Audio system is great and touch screen. Standard USB connection to audio system a plus. Everything is in the right places. First time you wash and wax it you will see what I mean.
Cons: Oil filter is a bit difficult to access. Right now, 0W-20 Full synthetic oil seems hard to find. At first, bluetooth was quirkey (dealership set it), but wife had it fixed before we got home. Works as advertised now.
Overall review: I personally couldn't be more pleased with my new truck. This vehicle is truely worth the price!

Recommended Mid-Size Truck by Stan from Central Florida on 03/09/2013. Trim: 2013 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner Double Cab V6 Auto 4X2, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: It is easier to park than full size pickups . The truck tows my boat pretty well. Gas milage is about 19 miles to the gallon with the V-6 engine in town. I like the way it looks. The blue tooth is very handy while driving. And the sound system is very good.
Cons: I don't have any dislikes. It is a good truck.
Overall review: If you are looking for a good mid-size truck with great resale value. And has been proven to be very reliable, I would choose a Tacoma.

Best mid-size truck without a doubt! by Reece on 01/27/2013. Trim: 2013 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab V6 Auto 4X4, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: 4wd & traction control system , fuel economy, plenty of room ,standard review camera.
Cons: Small bed
Overall review: Best truck I've ever owned...so long Silverado! If you want a truck that's got all the bells and whistles, is realiable, gets good fuel economy and can still tow a fair amount this is the truck for you. I still have a soft spot for the ford eco-boost however this Tacoma is a better vechicle in my opinion. Resale value on the tacoma is the second best out of any vechicle out there so just buy a new one that you like the most for an extra 1000 over a used one!!!

This is a great truck, should be better in some areas. by 30 something guy on 03/25/2013. Trim: 2013 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab V6 Auto 4X4, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Size is perfect, not to big not to small. Back up camera is a must, ride is firm and doesn't beat you up even with the TRD trim. lots of storage space inside the cab and behind rear seats. 4.0 engine is smooth yet powerful, road/wind noise at highway speed is surprisingly smooth/calm. Plenty of front leg room for 6 foot + adults. Rear passenger head rests fold down and don't block your view while driving. DRL can be turned off or on quickly. Truck feels solid, no lose fitting parts or odd noise from inside the cab while driving. Touch screen radio display can be turned off while listening to music. Truck comes with Toyota's two year or 25,000 mile free scheduled maintanence plan.
Cons: A truck at this price point should include, a ignition light, longer turn signal and wiper levers and a LOCKING glove box, center console and tail gate. The steering column doesn’t extend far enough. Somebody at Toyota should be fired for engineering tiny door handles for the Tacoma, those handles belong on a 1995 Tercel! There is no front license plate mount, just two holes drilled into the front bumper. I was disappointed to discover my Tacoma was made in Mexico; other Tacoma's are made in Texas too.
Overall review: I purchased the Tacoma Double cab with TRD off-road pkg for $430 below invoice. That said, this truck is great even with the cons noted. I compared the Nissan Frontier with the Tacoma when shopping for a smaller truck. I liked the look and feel of the interior and exterior of the Tacoma over the Frontier. Toyota knows the Tacoma has no equal in its class right now and the Taco outsells the Frontier too. I purchased the Tacoma for many reasons including its history of reliability. The Ford F-150 and Dodge RAM were to big for my needs, the Tacoma is just right. I avg 16 mpg mixed with city/hwy driving.
