Introduction

This is my review of a 09 Toyota Tacoma Pre-Runner 4.0 Access cab V6 Automatic 5 speed transmission. Truck has 153000 miles on it, so far other then regular maintenance like: spark plugs, filters belts, brakes shocks the only items that i have had to replace were both the front wheel bearings (common on the Prerunners) and the headlight assemblies that turned yellow like all many vehicles seem to do with age. Other then this i have had few issues and every thing is really easy to work on well made and straight forward as Toyota is know for...(i am a former german make auto technician and I LOVE this truck), it has plenty of torque and power also has great storage capabilities. On a side note the one thing i do not like about this truck is the MPG on combined city and mostly HWY i average 18.2 mpg but this truck does have good power and it is the largest engine that you can get in it with good towing capabilities if the need arises. In closing i bought this truck so that i dont have to waste money on constant costly repairs and something that will hold its value. Good luck !

Funny how people think the value of their cars are good compared to everyone else. But when you look at the competition the Colorado was $2,000 less before discounting and 8 years down the road used with similar mileage are still couple grand less based on cars dot com making the Colorado less to purchase and holds it's value better than the Tacoma.

Calculating resale value can be tricky. Is the starting point MSRP or the actual purchase price? Is the latter known? That said, every source I checked ranked the Tacoma best in retaining its value, though the Colorado and Canyon come surprisingly close, and all of these hold their value much better than larger pickups.

No one should pay full MSRP for a Tacoma or Colorado, or any mainstream truck for that mater. Even Toyota's are discounted today.
