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

Review

Had this truck for four months now, and absolutely love it. It's not perfect, but it's definitely a quality vehicle. Ride is a little bouncy, especially on concrete interstates (asphalt is smooth as glass). Couldn't afford the V6, but the 4 cyl. does fine. I don't do a lot of heavy-duty hauling or towing, so the HP is more than adequate. Getting 21 mpg avg and as much as 25 mpg on the open road. It's a great hill climber, creek splasher and rock rider and I've spent many fun hours off-road, exploring places I've never been before. But clean it up and shine it up and, man, it takes to city streets like a Jaguar to the jungle. And chicks love it!

Favorite Features

Fit and finish are excellent; body design is classy and sexy; sound system is superb; love the height of the vehicle. It sits up nice and high on its 16" wheels; like the automatic shutoff for the headlights when you exit the vehicle.

Suggested Improvements

Seat belts tend to be too tight; seat cloth (velour?) ages quickly and poorly; clock placement is poor; windshield needs more height; fender flares can pull loose in carwashes, so avoid carwashes
