2001 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Regular Cab 2WD SB (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Bought new, Thanksgiving weekend
2000. The reviews at that time of CR
and Edmunds, especially Edmunds, were
very accurate for the base model,
5spd, regular cab. I had a cold start
problem about a month after purchase.
Had it happen again about a year
later. Learned to hold gas pedal down
all the way while turning engine over.
It starts about 10+ seconds later,
sputters and smells for maybe 20
seconds, with small amount of light
colored smoke just after starting.
Then runs like nothing happened.
These two incidents
are it. The vehicle is mechanically
new, with very little cosmetic

Best Features

Bullet proof distributorless ignition 2.4 litre engine. Basic, simple vehicle. Easy to use and get used to.

Worst Features

FM radio no good at freeway speed. Backend skips around a bit, with sloppy handling over freeway bumps and ruts. Would love to have cruise control, bucket seats, CD, and a clock, but I'll live......
