I’ve owned numerous Toyota’s over the years. This is my 4th pick up. I purchased this 2007 Tacoma TRD Sport 4x4 double cab new end of Dec 2006. All maintenance records are available.
I like the style, look, ride & performance. However I’ve found the dependability isn’t what it once was and a good dealership is hard to find when it comes to the service aspect.
Replaced Rear differential @ 30145 K, both rear shocks @ 33723 K, Transmission mount @ 47574 K, Wheel bearing assemblies both sides Front @ 155792 K, Wheel bearing assemblies both sides Rear @ 157227 K that’s just over $3100. To replace all wheel bearings… and get this the front brakes haven’t been replaced on this truck, very sad that wheel bearing assemblies would have to be changed before the front brake pads.
Engine oil leak, several complaints of an oil leak RH side front of the engine about leak while under warranty couldn’t be found, once off warranty, the dealer found the leak at engine front cover. This is a big buck job to repair. Compass / outside temp gauge quit. Both rear park brake cables broke at the backing plate, prior to the need to replace the rear brake shoes. Other than that I still own this 07 Tacoma that is mainly an HI-way driver and currently at 221300 k
