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


Review

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.


Best Features

Tonneau cover, 6-speaker stereo, accessory power outlets, VERY COLD A/C, smooth shifting tranny, nice 15" wheels, smooth ride


Worst Features

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

My 3rd truck, but my first Toyota. Best truck so far. 4 cyl with a 5 speed. Does pretty good on gas. Tuff as nails and great in the snow.


Best Features

Good dashboard control layout. Love 4x4. Great truck


Worst Features

Only issue is the clock on the dashboard. You can't see it.

Review

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...


Best Features

Body-Style, front-end styling


Worst Features

interior could use a boost, and that darn rattling!!!

Review

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.


Best Features

Reliability! Tears through anything off-road.


Worst Features

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.
