1997 Tacoma Extended Cab 3.4L 2WD
By T. Clemens on


1997 Toyota Tacoma V6 2dr Extended Cab SB


Excellent vehicle. Only negative trait
is the large turning radius. It (the
turning radius) was reported as a
negative in Edmund's review, but I
didn't think it would be too much of a
problem. But it is. Not to the extent
of not buying one, but one must be
aware of the large turning radius when
operating it. It affects parking
capability, U-turn capability, and
close confinement capability. A few
more inches of clearance would be
beneficial as well. I think these
issues were addressed with the '98
Tacomas. So, a few (2-4) inches of
clearance would be nice, but a smaller
turning radius would be much, much

Best Features

Comfort. Performance (3.4 litre power with an un-loaded truck is pretty impressive). Looks. Dependibility. Resale value.

Worst Features

Just decrease the turning radius and increase the clearance by 2-4 inches. I believe this was accomplished with the '98-'99 Tacomas. Otherwise, it's a great truck (the '97 Tacoma).
