    You can defeat the automatic door locking. I found that when I turn the engine off and MANUALLY unlock the doors before I open the door to get out, they won't automatically lock back up on you. If you open your door or the passenger door before you manually unlock the doors using the switch on the door, they will relock automatically. (By the way my Acura and Honda accord also relock automatically).

    Anyone found a locking gas cap that will fit?

     

    The Fram one listed does not.

     

    Stant does not show one on their website either.

     

    Seems like it couldn't be that hard to design one to fit.

    I've used them a couple of times and they have been responsive.

    Are YOU selling these? If so, we don't allow that in the Forums; however, if you put them up for sale on Ebay by following the ad linked at the left, they'll appear on the ad within these forums in a matter of minutes.

  • I purchased my tacoma double cab long bed in November and has been trouble free ever since. I have been extremely impressed with its capabilities both on and off-road. My odometer is just over 9000 miles. My only complaint is the tires I blew out the sidewall on one of the tires on a rock off-roading. I have the 265/65 R17 Dunlops. From what I've read their sidewalls are pretty thin and I plan on upgrading these to something a little more rugged.

    Negative on that.

     

    I just called Toyota Literature because I was looking at getting them. My local dealership said they didn't have them in stock yet, and didn't know prices, but gave me the number at Toyota to call.

     

    That's a hefty price to pay for all of them though.

    Nissan would not back their own vehicles when they had problems.

     

    In the experiences I have had / heard, this is absolutely correct if the vehicle is "out of warranty." Not that any of those vehicles had any more problems than an owner might expect from another make, but the mfgr response was poor (at best) even if dealing with an obvious mfg defect. In one case, the defect disabled the vehicle prior to the 36K warranty expiration, but due to towing, the odometer was a few hundred miles over 36K when the service was performed and Nissan flat refused to cover the $1000 expense.

     

    For me, that's the biggest black mark against purchasing any Nissan vehicle. However, were I choosing between an '05 Frontier or Tacoma, I'd have to go with the Nissan because it is a better vehicle, dollar-for-dollar. Thankfully, I am not having to make this choice!

  • Iwas just wondering, i was thinking of purchasing an 05 Tacoma, was the leak taken care of..any problems with the composite bed?? How long have you had it..I am up in NH,, Thank you for your time
  • I have experienced NO problem after 3000 miles on my 2005, 4Cyl. extended cab Tacoma . A few weeks ago we had extended heavy rain in South Cal. and there was no leakage in my truck. I am very happy with my truck. It is quiet, smooth ride and has enough power for my needs. I get around 24 to 25 MPG for %70 highway and %30 city driving.
  • I got $2,000 of the MFSP
  • u kanadian then...? ya i duno wut to ask for i was gonna say eat the gst with the thousand off but i think thats wishful thinking
  • I have 1000 miles on a 2005 Taco, Access Cab, 4X4, 4 Cyl. Gas mileage on highway is 23.3. Very good performance for a 4 cyl. Toyota has definitely gotten the max out of 4 cylinders.

         Body rattles and I am not happy with that.

         Owners manual plainly states that when remote locking and unlocking doors there is suppose to be a beep. There is none and that is simply misleading manual info. Who the heck proof reads the manuals at Toyota?

         Rides like a dream. Looks great and have had a lot of compliments.

         No leaks have been observed and I have been in some hellish rain storms.

         Two questions:

    1) Did not get upgrade alloy wheels because I wanted special aftermarket ones. Current tire size is 245/75R/16 when delivered. Does anyone know if a 265/70R/16 tire will fit properly on this vehicle and not void any warranty, etc?

       

    2) Does anyone know of any after market Taco fog lamps that are being offered. Toyota dealer wants $199. for each light. Can you believe that?I saw the ones on EBay and they are definitely a scam. I hate the black holes in bumper.

    Thanks for any help...............
