2003 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Xtracab PreRunner V6 Rwd SB (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I had my tacoma for about eight months
and let me tell you, it was nothing but
trouble. I was at the dealer at least
once a month to fix stuff. mostly the
power window kept falling off the track
and wouldn't go up. also other annoying
stuff-the brakes and rotors needed
changing after 11000 miles, the
transmission shifted roughly, and the
worst part was that the dealer didn't
seem to know what they were doing. I
finally gave up and traded it in for a
dodge 1500. so far so good.


Best Features

You can't really go wrong with Toyota,
and the safety that go's with it


Best Features

everything is right there for you and you really don't have to look away to find it


Worst Features

Rear seats fold down so the front seats lay down more for a flater resting posision after driving for 20 hours and you don't want to stop at a motel for a few hours of not looking at the road

Review

The more I drive it, the more I love
it. It allows a man with a wife and
kids to still own a serious truck and
avoid the dreaded mini-van! The back
seat is very comfortable with plenty of
legroom, even for adults. It is
comfortable on the highway and
competent off-road. I am completely
impressed with its off-road abilities,
its height and locking rear
differential have allowed me to go
places my previous pickup could only
dream of. To top it all off, it looks
awesome too!


Best Features

The locking rear differential, roof rack and power door locks are my favorite features. The roof rack is perfect for holding my canoe and the locking rear differential allows me to get it and me to my favorite fishing spots. With four doors power door locks are a must!


Worst Features

The clock is almost invisible to the driver and really needs to be moved. The cost of my model is a bit high due to all the standard equipment. I really didn’t need power windows, power mirrors, cruise control and a standard transmission. Improved gas milage is a must.

2003 Toyota Tacoma 4dr Double Cab V6 4WD SB (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Perfect do it all vehicle with a great
on and off road manner. Comfortable for
four passengers yet able to tow, haul
and achieve very respectable gas
mileage. This vehicle is very reliable,
looks good on the town and on the
trail.


Best Features

Locking differential. Visual styling. Suspension travel. Smooth engine and transmission.


Worst Features

Suggest more comfortable seats. Engine Power is good but I am sure more power would sell more and make it more exciting. Toyota must always be sure to stay on top of the off road prowess, it is a large selling point. Could benifit from an even more silent and solid interior.
