1997 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Extended Cab SB


Very reliable vehicle. Has never
failed to start since 1997. Routine
maintenance has been performed
regularly. With 110000 miles it is
just starting to use about a quart of
oil between oil changes. The gas
mileage is 30 miles per gallon
consistently. Check engine light came
on at 100000, dealer said it was the
catalytic converter. One pint of "Sea
Foam" gas treatment in half tank of
gas and the light went off and stayed
off. A very good truck overall. Small
and sporty, easy to park, good power
from the small four since the truck is
light weight.

Best Features

Very reliable and economical.

Worst Features

The turning radius is a bit large. The suspension is too firm (rough) especially on Missouri roads(some of the worst in the country). This truck needs a sports car ride and less truck feel.
