1997 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


This truck is a great value. It's
tough, dependable, reliable, and
considering these trucks are "Built to
last" many years, the slightly higher
price is well worth it. Very low and
easy maintenance- have owned since new
(currently 135K mi), mainly just change
oil, add gas, and drive!!. The only
repairs of concern were A/C and a new
fuel injector. The 4cyl. manual is
suprisingly powerful, the hauling
capacity is "at least" 1/2 ton, and the
4x4 system is, from what I've
heard...superior to all others. Right
now for small trucks, the Tacoma is the
only one I'd consider.

Best Features

Shift-on-the-fly 4x4, stylish and aggresive looks, and the 10.5" (stock) ground clearance.

Worst Features

Slightly more back seat room would be great.
