Best compact truck ever
By dannybayless on


2000 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Regular Cab 4WD SB


I've owned several compact trucks and this is by far the best all around. The 2.7 pulls the rather heavy truck very well even with the 33" tires on 18" heavy rims I've put on. The motor has potential to have much more power with a few minor adjustments, which I have done and am very pleased with. This truck has done all that's been requested of it while getting competitive gas mileage (19-23). I've pulled over 10,000 pounds long distances over rugged terrain with ease, climbed the Smokey mountains, and taken 1000 mile trips with only the extremely uncomfortable interior to complain about. Other than uncomfortable ride, it beat expectations by far. I look forward to the next generation.

Best Features

rugged look, peppy engine, turning radius, ground clearance

Worst Features

durable but light duty drive train, uncomfortable and small interior, rough ride, bumper is falling off every one I've ever seen, locking hubs
