1999 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner 2dr Extended Cab SB


Review

Bought the truck this weekend with
67,000 miles on it and absoutely love
it, I've owned a Chevy S10 and a Nissan
Hardbody and so far this is what I've
been searching for. A small truck with
lots of power with high ground
clearance and good looks.


Best Features

V6 Power, Looks, Comfort.


Worst Features

Better cabin layout

Review

I bought this truck thinking it was a
4wd at first sight, when I found out
it was 2wd I was slightly disappointed
until I drove it. I have had no
problems whatsoever out of it. I have
replaced the tires @70000, windshield
wipers,front brake pads and
headlights, thats it. A careless
woman struck me and did 6500. in
damage to it and now that I am driving
a rental I can't stand it, I miss it
even more. Only thing I would trade
it for would be a 4door model of the
same thing.


Best Features

trd package, stereo system, clearance.


Worst Features

nothing, I truly enjoy it.

1999 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner V6 2dr Extended Cab SB


Review

Great truck. Quiet on the highway, handles nicely. It
may be 2wd but this thing flies through the dessert
and off road. The locking read differential is great if
you get stuck. Great daily driver. Very comfortable.


Best Features

Oil changes and thats about it. No mechanical problems. Toyota=Relability.


Worst Features

Interior could be improved. Less plactic, which easily scratches would be nice. An accessor third door would be great.

1999 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Regular Cab SB


Review

I bought this baby brand new in 1999.
This is a very powerful 2.4 lt 4 cyl
engine. I used to tow a 20' Commander
jet sky boat 3500 lbs from Corona, CA
to the Colorado river and I was amazed
at this great little truck pulling
avility. It has over 80K miles and all
I had to replace was tires and front
brakes. What more can you ask for?


Best Features

Reliabilty and towing power.


Worst Features

Bench seat is not too comfortable.

1999 Toyota Tacoma SR5 V6 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


Review

I bought my truck brand new and I have
had to take it to the shop for more
then regular maintenance a few times.
At 30,000 miles the air bag hose got
tangled in the steering column, had to
be fixed. At 54,000 miles the air flow
meter had to be replaced. Now at 65,000
miles and 2 clutches later the clutch
pedal continually squeakes loudly and
there is a "chirping" noise in the
clutch that are just "part of
mechanical wear" that nobody can fix
making it hard to sell. I wouldn't have
expected to need a clutch at 65,000
miles either. Other than that I love
the truck, it has handled well for me
and does great in every road condition.


Best Features

The design of the truck, the handling, pretty reasonable gas mileage for a V6.


Worst Features

Make the back seat a little more car seat friendly as it is too small and does not secure the car seat in well at all--latch system would help a lot.
