2003 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Regular Cab Rwd SB (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Over all it is ok for the money. Drive
train is very noisy at slow speeds or
when climbing hills. I have owned
toyota trucks for many years and would
not even consider any other type of
maker. I would like to have had a clock
somewhere on the dash.


Best Features

The 5 speed is nice. I like the way this truck handles curves and wet/snowy road surfaces.


Worst Features

Smooth out the drive train, other wise a nice truck.

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


Review

TRD Package could do without,
downshifts hard when cruise is on and
going up a grade, however i've had
this truck less than a year and have
over 33000 miles on it and its ran
trouble free. It is a good riding
truck. Get rid of the BF Goodrich
tires. I have slid out of control
with these tires. Put the Walmart
Conten. tires on it and so far I
havent had this problem continue.


Best Features

sets up high so you can see better


Worst Features

move clock, blind spot when looking behind to change lanes.

2003 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Xtracab V6 4WD SB (3.4L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Don't waste your money on the TuRD
package. Get aftermarket suspension -
For cheap get coil spacers, slightly
more go "Old Man Emu", or the bucks
get coilovers. Aftermarket lockers and
your unstoppable.


Best Features

No cheap (Nissan)looking plastic bumpers.


Worst Features

Diesel option. Better seats.

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


Review

7,000 miles on it with only one minor
problem. A hose to the coolant came
loose, and I lost the cooant, but they
fixed it. TRD package is great. Off
roading is a breeze with the locking
differential. Average mpg is 16-17.5,
not great. Clock is in horrible
position. Interior does look a bit
cheap. I too have a rattle, that I
cannot find. A little pricey, but so
far worth the money. I love driving it.


Best Features

Exterior look, TRD package, power and torque, ride hight.


Worst Features

Better quality materials inside.
