While full-sized pickup trucks increasingly adopt luxury trappings, compact trucks remain utilitarian workhorses. The Tacoma is a down-and-dirty example of function trumping form. The Tacoma is the perfect truck for landscapers and contractors. This beast of burden has a tough-as-nails chassis and a durable composite­ plastic bed. For off-roading adventures, the capable Tacoma has few peers.

When driving in 2nd or 3rd gear and attempting to accelerate, the transmission up shifts to a higher hear resulting in an unexpected change / drastic slowing of acceleration.

George E., NJ (2016 Toyota Tacoma Limited 3.5-L V6)

"It's really a combination of the transmission and the transmission computer. I think the gearing is too steep and the computer always wants to be in a higher gear than is practical.
