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

Review

The Tacoma is a respectable little truck. In 6 years I've put 75000 miles on it and only had to change tires, the battery, coolant, and oil. One thing in particular, is the steering has never gotten out of alignment, I had it checked when I replaced the OEM tires. It was right on. That was at 35000 miles. It is reliable, but slightly underpowered for its weight. It only gets about 18 mpg overall; in a range from 15 to 25 mpg. The interior is appealing except the seats are too lightweight. A seat spring makes noise sometimes. It also needs keyless entry. The headlights have never been changed and have been burning for 75000 miles! Same goes for other lights too. I've had no major problems

Favorite Features

Solid reliable performance, cruise control, 4X4, good stereo with tape and CD player. Get the 5 spd automatic over the stick if you drive in town a lot.

Suggested Improvements

Keyless entry, better seats, deeper bed, more power or better fuel mileage, a turbo diesel version, standard locking rear differential, more clicks on the intermittent wiper control, standard rubber mud mats not sissy carpet mats, locking gas cap now that gas is $4.
