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


After I took my new 2004 Tacoma home I noticed the bed wasn't level (left side over 1/2 inch lower than the right)and took it to Toyota of Puyallup for maintenance. Their first corrective action was to inflate the left rear tire to 34 lbs., instead of 29 lbs.. I wouldn't buy that. A Toyota factory representative "advised that up to 3/4- inch discrepancy in height is acceptable and no adjustments will be made under warranty". Refused to consider defective shocks, springs, assembly, loose or miss aligned u-bolts or noncompatable components. Where has the vaunted Toyota quality gone? Hello Honda!!!!!

Best Features

Design looks good and all components function as advertised. Good paint job. No squeeks, rattles or noises.

Worst Features

Better quality control. Radiator was replaced as it was damaged during assembly. Molding not properly installed and the front bumpers are ragged at both edges. Will actually cut you fingers like a saw. At least make the overload springs the same length.
