I love driving this truck. I spent many miles a day driving between and onto jodsites. The extended cab allows room for books and plans but offers little for a passenger. I also use it to pull two ATV's on a trailer when we go riding. The 6 cyl. handles the load at 65 mph on the straight level road but a slight inclines cause it to drop down a gear. At 20,000 miles, trouble arose with front end feeling loose and vibrating. Neither Toyota nor tire dealer could target the cause. Recall work on problem ball joints just completed and all seems smooth again. The Pre-runner ride is good and stiff and it puts you up in the air a bit for additional clearance and a better feel when driving.
The Pre-runner pkg. is a must! You need to get this truck off the ground for a good look.
I Have always wanted a tacoma since
middle school, so i finally got one!
And love it! Although, what is with
the rattling passenger airbag...i've
noticed alot of people have had this
problem...and yes, I HAVE IT TOO!!!
what I did though was just put a small
thin cloth between the windshield and
dash and hadn't heard it rattle since,
but the cloth is VERY noticable. If
you are thinking about getting one,
it's a wise investment...but if you
buy a 2WD it doesn't do so good off-
road, i'd go with the 4WD...

I balked at the cost at first, but put
the extra dollars down to make sure I
could get a decent vehicle. I scanned
the lot until I found one that had the
V6 and said "Parts: 100% Japan. Labor:
100% Japan. US/Canadian: 0%." That
makes all the difference, really. This
truck has performed above and beyond
expectations since the day I drove it
off the lot. The TCO is good, the
financing is acceptable, and
depreciation isn't too vicious. If you
want a truck, you can hardly do better.
Amazing acceleration. Smooth ride with
good shock reaction and tight
I could have used a bit less on the
price tag. Built-in bedliner would be
