Disappointment for a Toyota
By Josh C. on


1997 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Extended Cab SB


Within a year of purchase my Tacoma overheated twice on a flat interstate at normal speeds and once in West Virginia. Auto trans prevents effective use of already limited power and gas mileage has never been above 22. Under load, it sinks to around 12. It now has 106k miles and I've repaired the transmission linkages 4 times and had numerous electrical problems. Very disappointing for the reputation of a Toyota.

Best Features

Decent stock stereo with tape deck. Good sound quality.

Worst Features

More efficient 4 cyl and better steering. Turning radius is similar to a school bus.
