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


Review

I had a 98 Nissan Maxima SE and a 86
Toyota Land Cruiser, but I need to get
rid one due to space; so i decided to
get rid of both and settle on the Dble
Cab. Best decision I have ever made.
The only complaint, like everyone
else, the clock position is useless!
Smooth engine and excellent handling,
compared to other trucks. TRD package
is too harsh for some with weak
bladders, but I love it.


Best Features

Great Upgrades availible: TRD Supercharger/thermostat/Exhaust makes a huge power difference from stock. But there is no complaints here about the stock drive train.


Worst Features

Relocate the Clock! Add a navigation option and power antenna!

2002 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab 4dr Double Cab V6 4WD SB (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I wanted a reliable 4x4 truck that
would last at least ten years. This
truck has now 30K miles and there is
nothing wrong with it. I have taken it
off-road a couple of times and have
been very confident in it. It is
clearly not a truck that you want to
abuse too much off road though. After
off-roading once I had to have the
alignment done because it was thrown
off. Even though the ride is somewhat
rough and sometimes bouncy, the truck
has very good handling and it is sure
on its "feet".


Best Features

My favorite feature is the one-push four-wheel-drive engager (with the self- locking hubs)


Worst Features

The dashboard needs to be re-designed a little. The clock, for example, is blocked by the steering wheel.

Review

I've had my Tacoma Double Cab for two
years and love it. It has been very
reliable and have had no problems at all
with it. The quality of the truck is
excellent inside and out. I've been very
impressed that the cost of maintenance
is much less expensive than most others.
I would recommend this truck to anyone
looking for a good looking, quality
pick-up truck. The Tacoma Double Cab
also has great leg room in the front as
well as in the back.


Best Features

Ground clearance is significantly higher than most trucks this size. Lots of cup holders. Stereo system is great - has both a cassette player and CD player.


Worst Features

Only improvement I can think of is to move the clock to another location. It is a little hard to see because of the steering wheel.

Review

It was a little pricey, but I have
found it to live up to my expectations.


Best Features

I love the ground clearance. It handles well off road, though it is a little tippy in turns.


Worst Features

I think that the biggest inprovement they could make to this vehicle is to improve the power and gas mileage, well at least the gas mileage.

Review

2002 Tacoma double cab is very
practical and capable, but mine has
been a disappointment. I've had
numerous problems with a rattling
dashboard (10+ trips to the dealer and
it still rattles). Also, I just had a
fuel tank recall and had to get some
sort of metal shielding installed.
Water pump leaked and had to be
replaced. Another large water leak
into the cab from the engine cowl -
this thing is in the shop yet again
getting all the carpet and jute
replaced.

It's a great truck ... when it's not in
the shop. Based on my experiences over
the past 1.5 years, I would not
recommend this truck.

Worst Features

Overall, it seems to be a good design that is suffering from poor quality control at the assembly line.
