2004 Toyota Tacoma Xtracab 2dr Xtracab Rwd SB (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I have a very annoying clunking sound when stopping and when taking off; seems like the transmission was slipping, and or the drive shaft was very loose. Took it to the dealership in Greenville, and Greer, and they said it is normal, that they drive like that... What a piece of junk. I bought it believing it was going to be like my old 87, but it is not even close. It also has a whistling sound in the cabin, even when at idle, Toyota also said it is normal, it vibrates, and nobody seems to find the problem, I have new tires and rims, balanced and aligned 4 times, at different places, and Toyota says it is not too much of a vibration!


Best Features

None, it also drives very weakly. It feels like I am carrying 3000 pounds on the back.


Worst Features

Don't buy newer Toyotas, they stink.

Review

I sold my first Toy pickup after driving it for 22 years! The 2004 truck is very nice too. Rides good, handles well, nice fuel economy, and no mechanical problems yet after two years and about 26000 miles. Manual tranny is a bit "whiny" in 1-3 gears. Other than chugging up steep hills with the small four, I'm pretty happy. About 23 mpg in town, 28 on the freeway.


Best Features

Comfortable seating. Extra cab. Nice dash lighting at night. Quality feel to controls. Sliding rear window for air circulation.


Worst Features

Dash clock is hidden by the steering wheel. Bed tiedowns are inadequate.

Review

I was looking for a pickup that handled like a car and comparable gas milage, the Tacoma fits the bill. Pleasantly surprised to find a/c, stereo and cruise all on this trim level (SR5). Rear-end skip takes some getting used to, but otherwise handles well. Highway milage greatly improves with tailgate down (or off).


Best Features

Extra power port, stereo, cruise control.


Worst Features

I like what I've seen/read about the composite bed in the 2005.

Review

This truck has been my favorite of all
time. I have always had a Toyota truck
and always will. This truck and my
previous truck have never let me down.
Everything about it is great. The
reliabilty of these motors will
outlast any motor on the market today.
5 thumbs up.
