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


Review

2002 Tacoma double cab is very
practical and capable, but mine has
been a disappointment. I've had
numerous problems with a rattling
dashboard (10+ trips to the dealer and
it still rattles). Also, I just had a
fuel tank recall and had to get some
sort of metal shielding installed.
Water pump leaked and had to be
replaced. Another large water leak
into the cab from the engine cowl -
this thing is in the shop yet again
getting all the carpet and jute
replaced.

It's a great truck ... when it's not in
the shop. Based on my experiences over
the past 1.5 years, I would not
recommend this truck.

Worst Features

Overall, it seems to be a good design that is suffering from poor quality control at the assembly line.

the grandkids around.

Review

been wanting to get a truck for years
and my new job allows me to get one.
I drive quite a bit and I love this
truck. I bought a custom truck with
aftermarket rims, paintjob, grille
guards wityh KS lites and custom
leather. The only time I don't like
the truck is when it rains and it gets
dirty, I do everything I can to keep
it clean and looking ood.


Best Features

Fun to drive and looks great.


Worst Features

Work on gas mileage. I'm getting an air intake kit, though, which will help to alleviate the problem

Review

I bought this truck for my wife.Well,
6 months later she hit a big rutt in
the road and before she knew it she
was flying off into a ditch.The front
wheels got their traction back as she
turned the wheels back to the right
and she started rolling.All told my
wife rolled it 1 and 3/4 times ending
up on the passenger side of the
truck.


Best Features

The only thing that stopped her was a BIG concrete power pole.She, with some help, climbed out of the truck through the windshield and promply got a ride to the hospital with the local ambulance.The only injuries she had was 8 stitches


Worst Features

and small cuts and some bruises.The truck did so well in the accident that we are now driving a 2003 doublecab that we got to pay the same price for.The truck didn't even depreciate that much.Now we have the color we wanted in the first place....

Review

Great versatility with room for 5 in
the cab, but able to haul just about
anything in the bed.

It's my first truck & I would most
certainly buy another Toyota truck
product in the future.


Best Features

Great styling, excellent driver visibility, smooth drive for a truck.


Worst Features

Move the clock, inprove gas mileage & offer standard ABS
