2003 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Xtracab PreRunner Rwd SB (2.7L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I had 91 Nissan 4x4 that just rusted
away The V6 was very thirsty and in
town 4x4 driving was in minutes of
driving not mpg. I needed an economical
replacement with an xtra cab. A
replacement 4x4 4 cyl was ~ $8000 more
(Canadian) So my next choice was the pre
runner 2.7 l having the same horse
power as my Nissan V6 and better mpg.
Would definitely recommend the 2.7 l if
you want a 4 cylinder truck to boot
around town cheaply. Reliability of
Ford/Mazda was worrysome. Nissan was
better equiped but 6.9%


Best Features

Style is fantastic. 2.7 l motor is good compromise between mpg and horsepower. Truck is nimble and fun to own.


Worst Features

4 cyclinder trucks need manual transmissons. Canadian pre runners need 16" tire and fender flare. MOVE THE DAM CLOCK

Review

The truck is awesome! Im 20 years old
and I still don't know if I got a great
deal on it or not, all I know is that I
love it for what it's used for. The
price I ended paying for the truck was
$21,500 but I had to tack on $1,500
from an insurance settlement that did
not end so well. The truck handles
awesome! The pick up is very impressive
concidering that it is a 4 Cyl. and the
room is GREAT! You get enought leg room
in it to SLEEP THERE!!! I've done it!
Just once, the seat was not too confy,
but it did the job. People love it!
When they get in it they want it! All
my friends want to test drive it due to
the couple specs that I have added to
it.


Best Features

The one thing that I love the most is the way it sits. I look at it out the window here at my job and it's just awesome! It's my fun toy and it has that classy look! Just like me, Profesional during the day, PARTY ANIMAL AT NIGHT! =0)


Worst Features

I would have to say the way it feels when the wind hits it, It feels as if you are going to lose it if you look away for a second. Other than that, I LOVE MY TRUCK! Can't say anything about the pick up, it's a 4 cyl. =0) Oh yeah, Fuel Economy, it's struggling there.
