1999 Toyota Tacoma Extended Cab V6 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


Review

I bought this truck used with 31k and currently have 99k - tires, water pump, frt, brakes and shocks/struts are all that I have in it. Power from v6 is good but thrashy at WOT, good gas mileage for 4x4 - 20 mpg, but I have gotten as good as 22 on highway at 65 mph for 3 hours. Interior is utilitarian but showing absolutely no wear, 5 spd is a little whiney in 1st and 2nd - no problem with power on highway - very rarely have to take it out of 5th to pass. Trailering is good provided you have draw tight hitch. Payload is one thing that concerns me - leaf springs seem to be fatigued even when not fully loaded weight wise - new shocks did not help - still rides well though -A/C works well in Tx heat,


Best Features

Toyota reliability and overall stance of truck - it is substantial and beefy. It is not a plush car like ride and that is fine - IT IS A TRUCK. Go anywhere 4x4 with moderate comfort inside - a bed liner is a must.


Worst Features

I know that the 07 has addressed my issues - upgraded interior and more sound deadening materials. Looks and construction could not be better - there really is no telling how long it will run but maintenance is the key - it still gets 20 mpg with 99k on odo - if you find one taken care of, buy it.

Review

I bought this new from a dealership in 1999 trading in my 1996 Tacoma with 300,000}+ miles on it (should have kept it as back up it was still running great but was STD cab) This truck has been through 2 front end collisions one costing over $16,000 in damages, two side hits and one roll down a hill! It has spent many months in body shops. Regardles of how hard I beat it to death it still keeps going. I've had to replace the clutch at 200k which was the first major part excluding parts replaced in accidents. All in all I will never buy another make or model. Hopefully Toyota will see this and send me one for my family of 5. It's a bit cramped! I'll drive it to death & then try to buy another


Best Features

4WD low! I pull stumps out of the ground with this truck. It will climb the side of a building in 4 low. After adding headers and a supercharger (TRD of course) I have a grat time maing those little noise maker psuedo ten second cars eat my gravel! Only thing I would change is adding dual cab!


Worst Features

None, this was the perfect frame for this truck. The new 06 genetration looks just like a Dakota to me. I can't afford to buy a new one nor part with my 99 so I save for the day that Toyota puts another nice looking Tacoma on the road! Until then I see a new engine or tranny in my next 100k.

Review

Great looking truck. Reliability is self proven. V-6 has good power. Quality is unmatched. I have had several other trucks, but this is the overall best truck I have had. Not the most comfortable truck, not a lot of fancy buttons, simple yet refined.


Best Features

LOOKS and reliability....


Worst Features

better seats, smoother ride.
