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


Review

This vehicle is bullet proof. 185,000 miles and all the truck has needed is gas, tires, oil + filter. Milage has gone done since 3" lift plus 17's, [ normal ].

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


Review

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.


Best Features

Build quality, hands down.


Worst Features

Sound proofing, I can hear everything from the road outside. Not much you can do about this on an old model. Watch out for rusting too.

Review

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.


Best Features

Separate shifter for 4wd, no turn knob on dash, smooth shifting 5 speed, great in mud and snow, 16s and white gauges from the factory.


Worst Features

Nothing

Review

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.


Best Features

Four wheel drive and a gas saving four cylinder engine.


Worst Features

I would suggest that Toyota consider upgrading to a quieter ride somehow, mine is rather noisy (road noise).

Review

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!


Best Features

Off-road capability, ruggedness, reliability


Worst Features

Better fuel economy, more space behind bench seat
