I really love this truck. It has all
the features that I wanted in a vehicle
and I know about Toyota's Quality from
owing a Camry. If you want something
that will last and bring home the bacon
so to speak, get yourself a Toyota. I
have a friend who had a Tacoma and was
involved in a wreck the truck was
rearended and rolled she came out of
the crash with just some minor injuries
if she would have been driving anything
other than a Toyota she would not have
The Prerunner option that makes the
truck feel and look like a 4 wheel
drive. I've been asked if it is a 4
wheel drive many times.
The best off-road/on-road stock truck
money can buy. The truck handles
great on the highway where I average
20mpg. Every time I have taken it off-
road on either a beach or a trail, I
am amazed how well it preforms. The
size of the truck for me is perfect;
fitting all my "stuff" in frequent
trips to and from college is a huge
help. With Toyota's reliability the
Tacoma is a great truck.
TRD Off-Road package
Do not get a plastic-bed liner and
invest in a Linex liner.
Weve owned GM, Ford, Chrysler, Mazda,
Honda, VW and Toyotas. Honda was Excl
but can't beat a Toyota. Owned Trucks
and Corollas. Now have a 94 Corolla
Wagon, 2000 Tacoma SR5 and a 2004 SR5
Tacoma Double cab. Toyota wins, fuel
economy, dependability, Reliability,
performance, workmanship, and looks.
ALL CARS DEPRECIATE a lot faster than
any Toyota. Toyotas appear to hold
their more than any other.
Toyotas and Lexus are our ist choice
and may consider an Acura or Honda as
our 2nd. I do not work for Toyota but
their product is so good that I wish I
owned the company.
Looks, on all our vehicles. Tacoma 4
dr is great for 5 passengers. All

LOT )) when rear gate is

Purchased my 2003 in Sep 2002 off the
lot. Leather package but in my
excitement I didn't realize until the
next day it had no cruise control. For
what I paid cruise should not have been
an option. Truck is very roomy and
Exterior design very sporty. Very room
for a small truck.
Move the clock. The interior dash,
door panels are very cheap looking.
Console scratches too easily. Leather
material (perforated) is too thin.
Poor interior quality.
