Almost Like my Last One

2001 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Xtracab S-Runner V6 2WD SB (3.4L 6cyl 5M)


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- V6 back.

Best Features

Sport suspension, factory F/R stablizer bars, 190HP 3.4L V6.

Worst Features

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.
