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


Review

Bought new in July. I have 2080 miles on it. The air conditioner compressor is loud with it on high. The paint appears wrinkled along the lower rocker panels. I have been told this is normal. Clock is no big deal but you can't see it while driving. Came from the factory with one cargo hook missing in the rear, dealer replaced it without any problem. The rear seat folded down provides an unstable platform for carrying much. I do love the ECT switch on this rig and the comfortable front and rear seating is a plus. Picked up 1.5 MPG with the K&N air filter. So far I am satisfied with the vehicle and the dealer.


Best Features

ECT and 4x4 system.


Worst Features

Thicker paint on the bed. Move/do away with the clock. Make the backs of the rear fold down seats more level to actually be able to put stuff on them.

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


Review

This is by far the best all around truck out there. I owned a extended cab prerunner before and the only complaint I ever had was the small xtra cab. Well, Toyota fixed that with the new Double Cab...no complaints now :)


Best Features

Double Cab, smooth ride, soft seats, and wonderful storage capacity in the cab.


Worst Features

Improved stereo system

Review

I purchased my truck 2002 dbl cab 4x4 with a TRD suspension package although axle wrap is a real problem. Axle wrap is caused by soft leaf springs distorting while braking and or accelerating causing the drive line to bind, thump and bump. It has been to the dealer twice without long term correction. A crack service tech from Toyota is supposed to work on the axle wrap problem when he is in town. It is my hope that this problem can and will be resolved soon. I have never had a Toyota or any other car with this type of problem.


Best Features

Rear seats/doors.


Worst Features

Fix Axle Wrap issue. Five speed automatic transmission.~

Review

Have had this Tacoma for two weeks and really love it. So far mileage has been decent. I have 1580 miles on it (vacation) and just installed the K&N air filter. The K&N made a slight difference in acceleration for the better. Paid 2.7% above dealer invoice. Build quality is super. Did have one rear cargo hook missing in the bed.


Best Features

I like the ECT mode for the difference in performance.


Worst Features

Relocate the clock. Additional skid plates should be available.
