Review of the 2001 Toyota Tacoma

  • A capable compact pickup with a variety of body styles to suit most buyers. The 2001 Toyota Tacoma has a reputation for reliability, but value in question due to high asking prices.

Solid

Vehicle: 2001 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Regular Cab 4WD SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)

I have had 3 Toyota pickups, an '89, '99 (my all time favorite) and now an '01. The '01 is great in the snow, reliable as can be, and easy to drive. The four cylinder is underpowered, and as some people have mentioned, the gears need some adjustment. I would never discourage anyone from buying anything Toyota, but like everything out there, if you take care of it, it will take care of you.

Vehicle: 2001 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Regular Cab 4WD SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)

I live in northeast Ohio and the winters are bad here. My driveway is straight uphill so I need 4wd to get up it. I had a full sized Chevy 4wd but that truck was old and tired and didn't owe anybody anything. My buddy had a 99 Tacoma and I liked it so I bought mine. I only had a few problems 3 bumpers (the clearcoat peels off and rusts), power steering pump went out and catalytic converters rotted out, otherwise a great truck. I only have about 53,000 miles on it. I can beat on this truck and it asks for more.




2001, another fine year for

Vehicle: 2001 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Regular Cab 4WD SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)

I have had this Tacoma for almost a year, it is solid, so far I have noticed that rubber strips around the wheel wells are coming loose, other than that, the body has held up well.




The best

Vehicle: 2001 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Regular Cab 4WD SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)

This truck was a graduation gift from my parents and they couldn't have made a better choice. I have owned a 91 and 93 toyota tacoma, both 4x4, and they have become my favorite trucks. I drive my truck hard, using the 4X4 on a regular basis and I have yet to have a problem. The off-road capability is unmatched by anything I have come across yet. It is a simple truck that can't be beat!




Can't buy a better truck

Vehicle: 2001 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Regular Cab 4WD SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)

One solid reliable truck. I had an '89 2dr toyota truck with 180K and only changed a fuel pump. When I upgraded to the 2001 I couldn't be happier. I could use a little more leg room. I've take it out in some heavy snows and tried to get it stuck, can't do it!




Little truck

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Regular Cab 2WD SB (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

This is a great little truck. The steering feel is better than my Maxima, and the truck is very responsive to quick steering actions. There isn't a ton of power from the 2.4L automatic, but I bought it for a daily driver and to haul things for the house, so it's just what I need. The stepside bed really sets off the styling of the truck, and I've only seen one other stepside Tacoma with the same wheels that mine came with.
