I have own this truck for 4 years now and still love it. The sporty lines are awesome and the drivability is great and has plenty of ponies to get around people when I need to go. Handling is the best feature on this truck. I would reccommend this truck to anyone looking for a fun to drive small truck. Only draw-back is I am 6'4" and could use more headroom, but tilt the seat back a little and I make it work.
I have had this truck only a week. I LOVE it! Great power even without the supercharger and i have gotten many compliments on it already. I find the hand brake to be very dated and the interior design to be very basic but even with these downfalls, i find it to be a great truck!
Replaced my 1990 SR5 V6-XtraCab 5-Sp
4X2 w/150,000 miles with a new one, but
the closest thing to it Toyota makes to
replace it is the S-Runner. The
interior on the old one used higher
quality materials. The 2001 has thin
cheap plastic all through the
interior. The '90 had all analog
gauges. The new model goes with more
idiot lights. No rattles on the '90
even after 150,000 logged on the clock.
My 2001 S-Runner rattles like crazy
right out of the box. The gearing on
the S-Runner is too tall, requiring a
lot of clutch slipping to get
rolling. I like the new engine on the
S-Runner, but I wish I had my old SR5-
Sport suspension, factory F/R stablizer
bars, 190HP 3.4L V6.
Needs shorter gearing, nicer seats and
better quality interior. Suspension
needs better tuning - less low-speed
compression, more hi-speed compression
damping, a bit less lo-speed rebound,
faster hi-speed rebound damping.
