1998 Toyota Tacoma SR5 V6 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


Review

I really enjoy my truck! I have 217,000 miles and will run it for as long as I can. Only major repair was the water pump. Still running original fuel filter, drum brakes, AC, plug wires. It drives like new and does not burn any oil. You cannot beat Toyota quality and this truck proves that.


Best Features

AC is just amazing, good smooth V6, superb fit and finish.


Worst Features

Stock suspension is way too mushy, I have a three inch lift with aftermarket shocks.

1998 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Extended Cab SB


Review

As original owner and the sole driver of this vehicle for 210,000 miles, this is the best vehicle I've ever owned. Considering buying another one, but I'll hold on to the old truck to drive to keep miles down on the new one! Not tons of power, but great for hauling light stuff, moving, landscaping, etc.


Best Features

Gas mileage, storage in extra cab.


Worst Features

Extra cab only really big enough for kids to sit comfortably - too cramped for adults.

Simply put... worth every cent. I've got 234,000 miles on a V6 4x4 with zero breakdowns.


Best Features

Great looks, fun to drive.


Worst Features

Power outlets should be live with ignition off. Better cup holders.

Review

This truck has been a pleasure and a joy to own and drive. It has taken me to Alaska and back, survived many outdoor excursions and has safely gotten me home in many ice and snow storms. I have always felt safe in my truck. I have transported much cargo and two dogs. Life is good with this excellent vehicle. My husband has one too. I will 100% buy another!! Toyota rocks. Can't wait for the hybrid full size.


Best Features

My favorite features are how the truck drives, its reliability and sense of safety. I love how much stuff I can move or take on a river trip or sleep in the back.


Worst Features

Already done, 4 person seating! Getting better all of the time! Great job Toyota!
