The 2006 Toyota Tacoma is a well made truck with just some minor repairs

2006 Toyota Tacoma Base

The 2006 Toyota Tacoma is such a reliable vehicle. Very well made and very few problems . The only thing is the paint on the vehicle fades severely. I have a dark blue color and it is very faded due to the sun. I've noticed the dark blue, and black trucks fade very badly. The engine is strong and the body of the vehicle is very well built. This 2006 Toyota has been very reliable with only minor transmission issues in the past. The other only thing that may break is the glove box and the inside compartment breaks pretty easily. But otherwise very well made truck .

My truck is as reliable as I am.

2006 Toyota Tacoma Base

I love my truck. I have kept up on maintenance (oil changes, fluid changes, tire rotation, etc.) and in return the truck has been very good to me. My truck is extremely reliable. I am close to 200,000 miles and I have never had an issue with it. I have owned this truck for over a decade. When it is finally time to purchase a new vehicle, I would purchase another Toyota Tacoma in a heartbeat.

It has a very compact design that makes it extremely efficient when parking.

2006 Toyota Tacoma Base

My 2006 Toyota Tacoma is an outstanding vehicle. I have driven from Savannah, Georgia, to Clearwater Florida, on three separate occasions with no problems! It handles turns marvelously and drives as straight as a ruler's edge. Decent gas mileage and a very decent sized gas tank gets me where I need to go rather cost-efficiently. Overall my 2006 Toyota Tacoma is simply a spectacular vehicle.

- Michael M

Very good truck, so dependable.

2006 Toyota Tacoma Base

I have had this Toyota for a long time now. So dependable, you know this truck will not break down on you. Of course you have to do the regular maintenance of the truck like oil changes and such. Overall, it's been a great truck. The look is very classic and stylish too. So glad to bought it in 2006, and 13 years later it is still going strong.

Good experience, but may break down for good soon

2006 Toyota Tacoma Base

I've had my vehicle for more than 10 years. Overall it has worked very well, is reliable, and safe. However, I've had to replace the transmission 3 times now and I worry the car isn't going to last much longer. Besides the transmission, no other complications have taken place.

- Sienna M

It comes in different colors that will work for everyone. It is a good vehicle.

2006 Toyota Tacoma Base

It is the right size to haul items in it. Easy to get in and out of for anyone. It runs smoothly and last longer if you keep up on the maintenance. It's good for couples and kids. It is good for long trips and it enough cup holders for everyone. It comes in different colors.

- Tanya P

Reliable Toyota Tacoma without major mechanical problems.

2006 Toyota Tacoma Base

Great performance and reliability on this vehicle throughout the time I have had it. I have only had minor problems and routine maintenance due to the high mileage such as changing belts, pulleys or wheel bearings. No major mechanical issues to date.
