8 1/2 Years and Goin' Strong

2002 Toyota Tacoma Xtracab 2dr Xtracab V6 4WD SB (3.4L 6cyl 5M)

Review

I had lusted a red Toyota 4x4 Xtracab since I was in college, and my wife and I could finally afford to buy this one new TRD off the lot. We've taken into the most inhospitable places in the Colorado high country, moved out of two houses with it, landscaped innumerable lots with it, and added kids to the mix in between all the rest. It's been flawless overall, and we still love it dearly after 8 1/2 years. Given, the interior is small for a child seat and two 5'10 and over adults. Yes, there are a few rattles, it gets < 20 mpg, and rides like a buckboard wagon. But, it's a go-anywhere truck that always works. We've never regretted buying it, even once.

Bought brand new in 02. No mechanical problems, only issue was rattle in dash. 4WD is great! Decent MPG for a v6 4WD ~19 overall.

Have had no problems with truck other than the average wear and tear of use. No rust and it's now 3/1/08. Have owned 3 toyotas and this is the best. Recommend and will purchase another. 4WD works great.

My Truck

Review

I bought this truck new in 2002 and besides a replaced power steering pump (under warranty) I have had no mechanical issues. Toyota quality is second to none. Only gripes I have is the placement of the clock, and a jittery ride over bad pavement, and mediocre gas mileage (18 mpg avg.) but hey, its a truck. Stock tires were crap and after replacing them with bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo's the handling improved greatly. This truck has never let me down, and I'll probably have it forever. Its still as solid as the day I drove it off the lot. It always pays to have a great pickup.

Extremely reliable vehicle. Slim profile (compared to full-sized trucks and SUV's)and adequate ground clearance allows one to maneuver in tight off-road situations. Dependable, tight vehicle that's lots of fun to drive.

Guys, My truck rocks. I love the mini truck/ 4 wheel monster/ did you say mud? Look it has. This is my 1st Toyota ever, and I love it. It feels solid on any surface I put it on. My wife seems to enjoy driving it as much as I do. Im not sure why toyota went to such a bigger body style with the tacoma. I love it when I pull Z-71's out of the mud with my little truck. The extra cab has good room for me, the wife, and a 6, and 1 year old.

I am very pleased with this truck so far. I have had no problems at all with it. I bought it in Colorado and drove it home to Michigan. It was a fun trip.

I bought this truck new, 2002 4X4 TRD xtracab. 2 years and 45,000 miles later I've got no complaints at all. All I've done is oil changes and other minor dealer recommended maintenance. Tires are ready to be replaced and brakes are at about 50%. Fuel efficiency could be a better... i get about 17 avg.

This is a nice truck, and although I am a full size truck lover this truck makes up for it with improved mileage and excellent features.
