Almost Like my Last One
By S-Runnin'_SoCal on
Vehicle2001 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Xtracab S-Runner V6 2WD SB (3.4L 6cyl 5M)
ReviewReplaced my 1990 SR5 V6-XtraCab 5-Sp
4X2 w/150,000 miles with a new one, but
the closest thing to it Toyota makes to
replace it is the S-Runner. The
interior on the old one used higher
quality materials. The 2001 has thin
cheap plastic all through the
interior. The '90 had all analog
gauges. The new model goes with more
idiot lights. No rattles on the '90
even after 150,000 logged on the clock.
My 2001 S-Runner rattles like crazy
right out of the box. The gearing on
the S-Runner is too tall, requiring a
lot of clutch slipping to get
rolling. I like the new engine on the
S-Runner, but I wish I had my old SR5-
Best FeaturesSport suspension, factory F/R stablizer bars, 190HP 3.4L V6.
Worst FeaturesNeeds shorter gearing, nicer seats and better quality interior. Suspension needs better tuning - less low-speed compression, more hi-speed compression damping, a bit less lo-speed rebound, faster hi-speed rebound damping.
