2002 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Regular Cab 2WD SB (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Bought new, 91,000 miles now, just put new front drakes pads, that's it for repairs. The tires lasted 60,000 miles. About 20 MPG highway or city. Not great but OK. Runs and drives very good.


Best Features

City driving and utility.


Worst Features

More HP and MPG. No cock or trip odometer.

2002 Toyota Tacoma 4dr Double Cab V6 4WD SB (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I love my little truck, it's civilized enough for every day driving, but when we go into the sticks - we go off road for hundreds of miles. It can rock crawl, stump jump, plow through 1ft of snow, is surefooted in freezing rain. One year it was so icy I couldn't walk without falling - but I could drive! Totally reliable tough little truck. I've gone through brakes though. Move the clock so I can see it, gets poor mileage - but it's fast - so it's a trade off. I can haul plenty too - LOVE MY TRUCK!!!!!


Best Features

Its offroad capability, and agility. A breeze in a cramped parking lot. Great visibility.


Worst Features

I've gone through brakes though. Move the clock so I can see it, gets poor mileage - but it's fast - so it's a trade off. Has had a rattle in the dash for years, remote is hinky.

2002 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Xtracab 4WD SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is my 3rd Toyota P/U. Purchased because dependability. I've been disappointed with the fuel mileage, 20mpg. Wish Toyota would go back to manual hubs and offer a small diesel in the US. For its size, it can't be beat for performance and overall satisfaction.


Best Features

Body style, performance, dependability and overall quality.


Worst Features

Manual hubs and diesel option.

Bought brand new in 02. No mechanical problems, only issue was rattle in dash. 4WD is great! Decent MPG for a v6 4WD ~19 overall.
