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


Put most of the miles on it during the past 6 years (highway miles) driving 300 miles one way every 3-4 weeks. Since January 2010 have only put about 1200 miles on it. Comfortable for a tall person like me, and handles well. Economy was between 22-24 MPG, but got 26 a couple of times when my driving was below 60mph. Averaged 20 mpg around town. Height of truck bed low enough for carrying small loads and loading fertilizer, chicken feed, mulch in (50-60 pound bags). Selling it at 115,000 miles. Transmission went out at 78,900, but had purchased extended waranty, which covered replacement and rental car. Enjoyed truck, but can't carry new grand kids in it.

Best Features

Handling, comfort, legroom, 6 speaker sound system (SR5 package), ease of getting in and out of cab, truck bed height. Choose truck due to J D Powers rating for this year, not disappointed.

Worst Features

Put K&N filter in it after 15,000 miles (made big difference in pickup and gained .5 mpg). Payload capacity could be improved. Pretty much satisfied.
