Have had no problems with this truck since new except a water leak (wet rug) which the dealer managed to diagnose & fix on the first try (a grommet located on the fire wall was leaking.)
I previously owned a 94 Tacoma (hilux) Reg Cab 4wd and found it to be a nice little truck; but I've found the 2000 to be much more refined and comfortable, by a long shot.
The 2.7L 4 cyl has surprisingly good pick-up with the automatic trans, just don't plan on moving too fast with the bed loaded.
Quality radio/cd combo.
Comfortable seats, tight, quiet ride.
Surprised by the 4 cyl engine
For the money, the SR5 should include keyless entry and a bedliner.
The quality of the cloth seats and rug
seems questionable, as they are showing wear already.
Oil filter tough to remove/install!!
At least my 94 had a removable wheel well plate for ease of access.
