2002 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Xtracab 4WD SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Tight and well-built. Underpowered, but this may be the fault of the tall tires which raise the effective gear ratio. Driver seat felt weird at first but my bad back loves it, even on long drives. Weird and irritationg motor rap around 2K under light load, sounds like a rod knock, but can't be heard outside the vehicle. Some folks say the 3RZ motor will just keep running regardless. Bought a 100K "wrapper" warranty just in case.


Favorite Features

Fun and cheap to drive with 5-speed. Slider-type rear window helps ventilation. Styling is great -- compliments from everyone.


Suggested Improvements

Move clock to radio display. Drop ratio of 5th gear. Oil-filter location is absurd and a huge nuisance for self-maintainers, removable skid plate notwithstanding; let's have a remote-mount like the real trucks do it. Headlight aiming requires trim removal -- unacceptable!

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


Review

This truck does everything. added a soft tonneau cover, tube type running boards, bug and tar deflector and wind and rain deflectors. looks really sharp.


Favorite Features

The v-6 has great power. the 4wd is top notch, have never been stuck. The only mechanical work i have had done was installing an engine block heater and oil changes. Absolutely no trouble.


Suggested Improvements

The clock position is less than adequate.

2002 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Xtracab 4WD SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is my fourth Toyota truck, I have had excellent luck with all of them. This xc 4wd is all realiable, comfy and good looking too. It does what I need it to do without looking big and stupid like so many trucks on the market today.


Favorite Features

Engine, transmission, dash, mileage and general reliability.


Suggested Improvements

More power & better mileage.

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


Review

I have wanted the Toyota Pickup for a long time, and finally I got one April of 2002. I called it "my Buff Little Truck" and it is! It has great pep in it and takes a bit of off road abuse. :)


Favorite Features

Just about everything!


Suggested Improvements

Needs STANDARD antilock brakes, move the clock, and need to fix the hesitation time when suddenly accelerating.
