A reliable vehicle from a trusted brand.

2005 Toyota Tacoma Base

Vehicle has been very durable. Has a lot of mileage on it and I would say that there have not been any unexpected flaws to it. The maintenance of the vehicle has been mainly due to the age and wear and tear of the truck. My Tacoma is a two wheel drive, four door, and has been very versatile for me and my family as I can use it for work, for transporting the kids, or just for your basic commute to and from work. I would highly recommend this vehicle, and I have held the belief that Toyota is a trusted brand and customers can expect to get a high quality car or truck.

Best truck I ever owned

2005 Toyota Tacoma Base

Bought my 2005 TRD off road in 2007 from a Toyota dealer with 7000 miles Only things over the years I replaced were front wheel bearings when it was around 95000 miles rear axle oil seal on passenger side. Toyota replaced frame in 2016. Other than two sets of brakes and a water pump I had them change when frame was being changed never had any issues. Truck even had original exhaust pipes and muffler. No rust on body just traded in now 11/20/2019 with 151000 miles on the clock These trucks hold their value too. Traded in on a 2018 TRD off road to start the journey again!

Good truck, low maintenance, great look

2005 Toyota Tacoma Base

My truck is very reliable. The weather trim around the doors is wearing and pulling apart, otherwise I have no complaint. Gas mileage is also good without needless waste, low maintenance for the engine. The speakers could be better with a better music player.
