2002 Toyota Tacoma Xtracab 2dr Xtracab 2WD SB (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Seems like a decent compact truck so far. Could use more power, a little pricy for what I got. Seems solid, though and a nice ride. I had a Ford Ranger previously (a 1991), and loved it. Could use a 3rd door on Xtra cab, Auto Tranny makes acceleration a bit sluggish at times. Who put the clock there? You can't see it from the driving position. And if you install a CD AND Cassette player, why wouldn't you provide storage for CD's as well?? Cassettes went out long ago, yet armrest has cassette storage area. Dual accessory power outlets a BIG plus! Overall, a nice ride....just not sure on the value... give me a couple of years.


Best Features

Tonneau cover, 6-speaker stereo, accessory power outlets, VERY COLD A/C, smooth shifting tranny, nice 15" wheels, smooth ride


Worst Features

More punch to the small 4 cyl. MOVE THE CLOCK!! Include more standard features, CD storage, Improve pre-owned dealership experience, needs a cargo light (and connections to add light to tonneau cover when opened) Truck has fog lights.....but they do not turn on?? No reference in owners manual

Review

Purchased a 2003 Toyota SR5 Ext Cab.auto,PS,Air, Cruise Control. very satisfied with performance of vehicle.All vehicles are not up to the standards of the durability ofToyota........However, is the vehicle worth the hassel of being wary of salesmen/admin pushing to get as much money as they can?

Review

I have owned Toyota for years, but this is better than I thought it would be. The 4 cylinder engine is more than enough to get around with, with or without a cargo. I have seen reviews saying it is under powered, if you want a sports car, buy one! I love this little truck, looks good, drives good, all that a new car should be. Great vehicle, really nice.


Best Features

The entire truck.


Worst Features

Move the clock!
