2001 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Xtracab 4WD SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)
I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH THE FUEL
ECONOMY, BUT WHEN I REALIZED THE TOWING
AND HAULING CAPACITY, I UNDERSTOOD WHY
THE FUEL MILEAGE IS WHAT IT IS. THE
TRUCK HAS A 4:10 AXLE RATIO THAT KILLS
ANY HOPE OF GETTING 18+ MPG(WHICH IS
WHAT I HAD BEFORE THIS). BUT POWER,
PERFORMANCE AND A GOOD SET OF MUD TIRES
MADE UP FOR MY DISAPPOINTMENT. I CAN'T
WAIT TO INSTALL MY TRD SUPERCHARGER AND
GET EVEN LESS FUEL ECONOMY, BUT A WHOLE
LOT MORE FUN.
THE CD AND TAPE DECK RADIO ARE VERY
NICE. THE "ETC" POWER BUTTON/FEATURE
COMES IN HANDY WHEN YOU NEED EXTRA
POWER. THE FOUR-WHEEL DRIVE IS
FLAWLESS AND VERY POWERFUL AND
OUTPERFORMED MY EXPECTATIONS.
I'D LIKE TO HAVE THE KEYLESS ENTRY AS A
FACTORY OPTION, INSTEAD OF AN
AFTERMARKET ONE. AND I WOULDN'T MIND
LOSING SOME PAYLOAD FOR A LITTLE MORE
GAS MILEAGE. I EXPECTED A TRUCK ITS
SIZE TO BE MORE FULE EFFICIENT.
