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


Review

Nothing fancy just works. I have owned this truck for 6+ years and have nothing but great experiences with it. The thing just starts and runs every day without exception.


Best Features

4WD works well. It will climb anything.


Worst Features

The cruise control is far from fantastic. It does not seem to know when to shift on hills.

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


Review

I bought this used to see if I could live with a compact truck. Mine has 2.7 4 cyl with 5 speed. The catch is it has 220k miles on it!! I have to say it runs like new I swear!! I talked to the guy that owned it from new and he had no problems ever. Leaks nothing and burns no oil. Shifts great. I have oversize rims and tires and still has decent pickup. When this wears out I'll buy another with less miles for sure. Oh no rust on the body or frame either, I'm in the rust belt in the Northeast. Goes great in snow.


Best Features

Ease of 4wd, gas mileage, smooth shifting, stable, solid, nice radio/cd player, handling


Worst Features

Rattle in the front dash, clock location.

2002 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Xtracab V6 4WD SB (3.4L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Have had no problems with truck other than the average wear and tear of use. No rust and it's now 3/1/08. Have owned 3 toyotas and this is the best. Recommend and will purchase another. 4WD works great.


Best Features

4WD on the fly. Size.


Worst Features

Better defrost. Never needed it until I moved to Maine. On really, really cold days defrost only works up to @ 6-8 inches above steering wheel. Wish there was a diesel option.

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


Review

4 doors are great and I don't find the size of the bed to be an issue. Reliable, handles well, especially in snow. Not the most comfortable ride on bumpy dirt roads, but fine on the highway. I highly recommend it.

2002 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Regular Cab 2WD SB (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

My Tacoma is a regular cab short wheelbase 2WD with 2.4 L and automatic. It is fun to drive and very manuverable. It can haul the load when asked and gets fairly respectable gas mileage (20-24 mpg). I made several cross country trips with a loaded bed and it has performed just great.


Best Features

Favorite features are reliability, fun to drive and it still looks like new after all these miles.


Worst Features

Suggested improvement is make the Tacoma run like the Camry 4 cylinder.
