2003 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Xtracab 4WD SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Bought this in late 2002. At 500 miles the motor started to knock/thud under light loads. One dealer said they thought the noise was injector related; imagine that knocking injectors. Another dealer, after telling me diagnosis may cost me said "we hear it but don't know what it is, these 2.7L engines are typically noisy, must be normal" They wrote it up as "no correctable condition found" sort of an oxymoron. So if you don't know what it is, how do you know it is not correctable. I have found a site at Automotive Forums.com where other have the same issue.

Favorite Features

I like the handling, the interior, and the gearbox.

Suggested Improvements

Don't build the engine in California or get better quality control. Toyota should offset dianosis costs for their dealers so the dont just blow off customer issues.
