My 2001 2.4L Automatic Tacoma has been a
blast to own and drive. While it's not the tire-
burning monster of a musclecar, it gets me to
where I want to go in comfort. On 9+hr trips
my back doesn't hurt and that's a good sign.
Mechanically this thing is great. I expect
many many years and 200,000+ miles of
trouble-free service out of this vehicle. This
was my first NEW vehicle purchase and the
whole experience with Toyota and my Toyota
dealer has been positive. I
would purchase it again, and recommend this
truck to anyone who's wanting to get an
inexpensive (but nice) truck.
Kickin' exterior design, good handling
performance (for a truck), good seats and
interior ergonomics. I still love it after owning
it 3 years!
2.4L + Automatic isn't the fastest thing in
town. Interval wipers would have been nice.
I think I should have gotten a double cab... I'm
6'2" and seats just don't really go back far
enough for me.
