2004 Toyota Tacoma Xtracab 2dr Xtracab 4WD SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is the first NEW vehicle I have ever bought. I've now put 5,000 miles on my truck without a single problem. No sqeaks, rattles or anything. I think the gas mileage is great for a truck. Try to find an extended cab 4x4 truck now adays that gets 20 mpg in the city!! Fit and finish is top quality. I love the compact size and I'm 6'4". I think there is plenty of room. Lots of storage area in the cab believe it or not. The reason I got this truck was because of the cult following they seem to have with them. Now I know why. I don't know about the new redesigned 05's but I am sure they will be just great. Great Truck off road it will handle anything you can through at it.


Best Features

Locking rear diff., Ride quality (Don't believe the others. It's a truck.), Gas Milage, on-line community behind these trucks, Fit and finish, and last but not least QUALITY!!!!!!


Worst Features

Like everyone else clock placement. Other than that nothing!! I went from an Audi A6 to this and will never buy anything but a Toyota again. I LOVE MY TRUCK!!!

2004 Toyota Tacoma Xtracab 2dr Xtracab PreRunner Rwd SB (2.7L 4cyl 4A)


Review

A little rattle has turned into a squeaking annoyance. Other than that she rides well. A little bumpy here and there but overall a good truck. And for not being 4x4 she can sure tearup the trails!


Best Features

Height, steering control, exterior look, gas milage


Worst Features

Better sound system including the CD player. Little more weight in back end to prevent hydroplaning, and tighter bolts for all the rattling.

2004 Toyota Tacoma Xtracab 2dr Xtracab V6 4WD SB (3.4L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Had this truck for a year and a half now. This is my second truck (had a 2001 Dakota V8 for a year but it turned out to be a lemon, nearly self- destructed). If you want a truck that is trouble free and solid, this is your vehicle. I loved my 01 Dakota (when it was running), but it had too many problems to keep. The Tacoma, while not as powerful or agile as the Dodge, is built much better. As long as you're not expecting sports car handling or power, this is a perfect truck.


Best Features

Build quality, good brakes and decent power, low maintenance, good looks, good offroad and in the snow, and I get 22-23mpg at 70mph on long highway drives (pretty darn good for a V6 4x4 truck).


Worst Features

A bit more power, higher seating position (bucket seats are too close to the floor), better factory stereo system.

2004 Toyota Tacoma Xtracab 2dr Xtracab V6 4WD SB (3.4L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I've done every type of wheeling that you can do, and this thing stock performs better offroad than anything (other than a jeep rubicon). Slight dash rattle but a TSB is available.


Best Features

Rear locker, ground clearance, looks, build quality, large powerband.


Worst Features

Needs optional sunroof, oil filter placement (oil changes stink unless you drop the skidplate), stock BFG rugged trail tires (should be BFG A/T KO's).
