Overall, happy with my Tacoma

2009 Toyota Tacoma Base

I purchased my Tacoma used about two years ago. Other than the expected maintenance, I haven't had any issues. The suspension is a little stiff but that is to be expected with a truck. This is my daily driver and it's overall a comfortable ride, long distance however can be a little uncomfortable because the lack of lumbar support. The only other issue I have is the size of the bed, it is neither wide enough or long enough to transport a sheet of plywood, for example.

The 2 gen Tacoma, best truck out there.

2009 Toyota Tacoma Base

The 2nd generation Toyota Tacoma is the most reliable truck you can get. Not only is it easy to work on, such as oil changes and brake jobs, but they are super reliable. Along with being easy to work on, they are awesome to customize to your own liking. Great for off roading, great for bad weather and snow.

Mid size truck but full size power.

2009 Toyota Tacoma Base

This is a very nice mid size truck. Great on gas but. We haven't had any major problems. However, note that when it does require repairs it cost more than an American car. I would highly recommend this truck. Great for travel and jobs. Much easier to drive and park than any other large truck.

Very good running and comfortable.

2009 Toyota Tacoma Base

No problems run good. I have had it for five years and it seems to be running very well. Had the transmission replaced a couple years ago running good since. The ride is comfortable and sits a lot of people on the inside. I would not want to ride in another vehicle since it has been so good.

Good for our family road trips!

2009 Toyota Tacoma Base

My vehicle is great, I use it for work. I do need a bigger ride since my family is growing rapidly. Have not had any problems with this vehicle so far. I love the inside very relaxing and beautiful blue color. It runs very nice and gets me to where I need to go on a road trip.

Decent on gas and handles well in snow for a 2wd.

2009 Toyota Tacoma Base

Very reliable vehicle with low maintenance. I have 140,000 miles on it. Basic maintenance has been done over the years I have had it. I would recommend Toyota to consumers. Only issue for me personally is it is difficult with children because of the size.
