2002 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Xtracab 2WD SB (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


First off, the truck was delivered dirty and damaged. The salesman tried to clean the upholstry with paint cleaner. That ruined the drivers side seat. The area where the top of the cab connects with the side at the passenger window was not ground down and the weld joints are exceptionally noticable. The AC and heat "whistle" on the top two speed settings (unless set to highest or lowest settings). I wouldn't purchase another Tacoma.

Best Features

It has a comfortable ride. The paint is an attractive color and the new body design is a definite improvement over the previous model (I had previously owned a 1999 Toyota Tacoma). The center seatbelt, best I can tell, is a cruel joke.

Worst Features

Quality control would be a start. They might want to look a little harder at the products they produce. To me, there is no excuse for the "whistle" in the AC system nor the welds showing through the exterior paint. Then there is the issue of the dealerships...
