Vehicle: 2002 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Regular Cab 2WD SB (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

Bought new, 91,000 miles now, just put new front drakes pads, that's it for repairs. The tires lasted 60,000 miles. About 20 MPG highway or city. Not great but OK. Runs and drives very good.




Toyota 2wd 2002

Vehicle: 2002 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Regular Cab 2WD SB (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

I bought this vehicle in great shape. Lately, it has been shifting its automatic transmission too early and bogging the engine. Also, at idle it has a rattle now. It is only 6 months old. Not what I expect from a Toyota.
