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


I read Consumer Reports, and the Tacoma is the only compact pickup they endorse. I read lots of reviews online from customers. I read edmunds reviews and the like. I spent a month reading and reading. Then I test drove maybe seven or eight Tacomas and really got a feel for them. Maybe I'm a nut, but I wanted to make sure I was getting my money's worth. Well, I sure did. I have a 2003 Gold Tacoma completely loaded with leather, woodgrain dash, bug guard, upgraded wheels and tires, bedliner, lighted color-keyed running boards, and toyoguard (overpriced but what the hell, maybe the gunk works!) This is arguably the best vehicle I've ever owned.

Best Features

Very comfortable leather seats, great acceleration, large backseat for two little girls, and nimble handling for a truck with such large tires.

Worst Features

I like where the clock is positioned because I can't see it. Looking at a clock tends to stress me out or remind me how late I am, so Toyota did me a favor by hiding it behind the steering wheel!!
