2016 Tacoma Owner Reviews (2)
YOU WON'T *********** A TRUCK
Have been driving the 2016, 4WD, SR-5, 6 cyl. Tacoma Access Cab for about 6 months now. The 6 speed auto is continually shifting. The drone from the engine and exhaust is LOUD! The new Atkinson Cycle engine may have more horsepower, but it doesn't show. Acceleration is slow - much less than what I get from my 2013 6 cyl. Highlander. It rides rough! You definitely will know you are riding in truck. The step-up into the truck is high and awkward. The driver's seat is way too low and it's uncomfortable. It handles well and gas mileage is 20 -23 depending on the trip distance. Instrumentation, gauges, etc. are fine, but the temp control and fan speed is hard to decipher. The composite bed is nice and saves buying a liner. I use it as a truck and bought it for reliability, so it works for me. If you're looking for a quiet, smooth ride with barely noticeable shifting, you don't want a Tacoma. If you're looking for a reliable work truck, this one is tops.

we have had some issues with it but overall it has been a good car. You just have to watch out what kind of gas you are using in it and make sure you bring it to a dealer since it is so new most mechanics do not know how to work on this because so new
