This truck has been completely reliable, with no frills, no problems, just basic transportation and 900+ pounds cargo carrying. Gas mileage was and still is exactly as stated on the sticker, 22 miles per gallon city, 27 mpg highway with a 100 pound cap/canopy and a bedliner installed.
The main "feature" of this vehicle would have to be its simplicity since it is so spartan it doesn't really have any notable features.
In 1995 Toyota upgraded their basic pickup to the Tacoma. This added airbags, a right side rear view mirror, a day/ night rear view mirror, a bunch of other improvements and thousands of dollars in cost.
