I am the owner of Toyota Tacoma SR5 for 5 months. My father has bought it to me as a gift. It’s my first truck, I am not so good at the automobile industry but I become more and more experienced in it.
Firstly, I want to mention the exterior of the truck. It is a giant so huge and powerful, I fall in love with it from the first sight. It looks like a wagon for real men, it looks real great.
You can drive the truck effortlessly; it’s quite easy to drive wherever you are in the countryside or in the town. The truck drives well over rough terrain and on a smooth highway.
It is not aggressive on the road, turns smoothly, I would say gently. It accelerates very quickly, and before you know it, you are already speeding along the highway at 100 kilometers per hour. I’m not a fan of high speeds, but it’s definitely a plus.
The integrated navigation system helps to drive in all the unknown places of the country.
The trip computer is much smarter than in my Land cruiser. Sometimes I think that it‘s uploaded with unimportant functions a bit. But maybe I just haven’t figured it out yet.
The audio system is at the highest level. The sound is clear, high, the dynamics works well. Of course, there is AM/FM radio, satellite radio, CD, MP3 Player. In my opinion the sound system is premium.
I am fond of rock and I am used to listening to loud music while driving a car. This truck has no problems with it, you will be satisfied.
There is a lot of room for the whole family inside the truck.
The truck body is very roomy. When we moved to a new country house it was very useful to us. There was a TV, a mini-refrigerator, the kitchen furniture and other appliances in the truck. My father bought it for me with the expectation that I would be able to drive it long distances around the country. I like going out with my friends. With the truck we can go with friends days and nights without thinking about anything.
The color of the truck is deep blue with some shimmer. However, probably it will be difficult to find the same color of paint if necessary, but it is definitely worth it. It attracts everybody with its beauty.
If to speak about the price it’s comparatively cheap in comparison with the truck of the same class. It cost my father $36,110.00.
I have been driving Tacoma since 5 months but still almost every day I am learning something new about it. It’s amazing.

If to speak about my personal impressions I am completely happy with dad's gift. The car is a beast, roomy, comfortable while riding. What could be better? I hope it will serve me for many years. I can definitely recommend the truck.
- 1. The truck has not broken seriously since I have got it (5 months). It‘s very important for me as my previous Toyota Land cruiser used to break from time to time.
- 2. Smart climate control.
- 3. Made in Japan.
- 4. 5 leather bucket heated seats.
- 5. The change of oil – every 10,000 miles (quite good!).
- 1. Horsepower is 278 (for me that’s enough).
- 2. Not unique, often found on American roads.
