2004 Toyota Tacoma Xtracab 2dr Xtracab PreRunner V6 Rwd SB (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I was considering a wide range of vehicles, was looking and researching and decided to go with the Tacoma because of the high ratings from consumers and editors. I am very pleased with my Tacoma almost 9000 miles on since July of 2004 and like it, v6 has plenty of power, handles well on and off road, and good service at the dealer when going there for oil changes, I am so glad I bought a Tacoma than a ford ranger, to me the quality of this truck is better.


Favorite Features

Easy to use controls, and brake force distribution

It drives as good as my 2000 Tundra


Favorite Features

Fold down back bench seats, handling is very good, you would never dream it was a truck!


Suggested Improvements

Insulation under hood to lessen motor noise, noise is not loud but could be quieter

Review

Bought new 2004 Tacoma 4 x 2 automatic 2.4 cyl SR5 ext. cab Very unhappy, poor power, 2 pc. drive shaft clunks when you accelerate hard, dealer service department, nothing we can do. rated at 21-26 mpg. best I have gotten is 21 even on highway. If a/c is on, loose speed going up a incline, do to poor power. Don't waste your time. It won't be in my garage long!!!


Favorite Features

All Toyotas have great paint. Good resale, important to me, since mine will be for sale soon.


Suggested Improvements

Too numerous to mention

Review

Bought my truck in May of 2004....researched and test drove it for about 2 weeks. could not be happier with it. toyota is the king of building a reliable vechicle. the prerunner looks great, has great handling and all the mumbo jumbo of a crappy ride is CRAP. it has an awesome ride for a truck and u cannot top the offroad capability....espsecially with the TRD package which includes the blistein shocks for a more stiffer ride.the interior looks excellent as well..i have the radient red color so the tan cloth looks good. the transmission shifts sooo smoothly and the V6 pumps out almost 200 horses so it does have great power for its size. you can't beat the quality of a toyota truck


Favorite Features

The exterior is soo stylish...the rear sliding window cools off the cab nicely when its just a little to cold for the A/C. the cruise control is as smooth as any other vechicle ive been in. great stock stereo system, it even has tweeters! also the truck has 6 cupholders!


Suggested Improvements

there is only one thing that toyota messed up on in this generation of the tacoma....as you have read it is the digital clock which is blocked by the steering wheel when you view it from a normal driving position. you also may want to consider the new 05 model year, other than that go buy a toyota!
