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