Seems like a decent compact truck so far. Could use more power, a little pricy for what I got. Seems solid, though and a nice ride. I had a Ford Ranger previously (a 1991), and loved it. Could use a 3rd door on Xtra cab, Auto Tranny makes acceleration a bit sluggish at times. Who put the clock there? You can't see it from the driving position. And if you install a CD AND Cassette player, why wouldn't you provide storage for CD's as well?? Cassettes went out long ago, yet armrest has cassette storage area. Dual accessory power outlets a BIG plus! Overall, a nice ride....just not sure on the value... give me a couple of years.
Tonneau cover, 6-speaker stereo, accessory power outlets, VERY COLD A/C, smooth shifting tranny, nice 15" wheels, smooth ride
More punch to the small 4 cyl. MOVE THE CLOCK!! Include more standard features, CD storage, Improve pre-owned dealership experience, needs a cargo light (and connections to add light to tonneau cover when opened) Truck has fog lights.....but they do not turn on?? No reference in owners manual
I Have always wanted a tacoma since
middle school, so i finally got one!
And love it! Although, what is with
the rattling passenger airbag...i've
noticed alot of people have had this
problem...and yes, I HAVE IT TOO!!!
what I did though was just put a small
thin cloth between the windshield and
dash and hadn't heard it rattle since,
but the cloth is VERY noticable. If
you are thinking about getting one,
it's a wise investment...but if you
buy a 2WD it doesn't do so good off-
road, i'd go with the 4WD...
Body-Style, front-end styling
interior could use a boost, and that
I bought this truck new, 2002 4X4 TRD
xtracab. 2 years and 45,000 miles
later I've got no complaints at all.
All I've done is oil changes and other
minor dealer recommended maintenance.
Tires are ready to be replaced and
brakes are at about 50%. Fuel
efficiency could be a better... i get
about 17 avg.
Reliability! Tears through anything
Better fuel economy. Plus I don't know
why a $23,000 truck doesn't come
standard with keyless entry or a lock
on the fuel door.
