One Fine Truck
By The Kentucky Kid on


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


Had this truck for four months
now, and absolutely love it. It's
not perfect, but it's definitely a
quality vehicle. Ride is a little
bouncy, especially on concrete
interstates (asphalt is
smooth as glass). Couldn't afford the
V6, but the 4 cyl. does fine. I don't
do a lot of heavy-duty hauling or
towing, so the HP is more than
adequate. Getting 21 mpg avg and
as much as 25 mpg on the open road.
It's a great hill climber, creek
splasher and rock rider and I've spent
many fun hours off-road, exploring
places I've never been before. But
clean it up and shine it up and, man,
it takes to city streets like a Jaguar
to the jungle. And chicks love it!

Best Features

Fit and finish are excellent; body design is classy and sexy; sound system is superb; love the height of the vehicle. It sits up nice and high on its 16" wheels; like the automatic shutoff for the headlights when you exit the vehicle.

Worst Features

Seat belts tend to be too tight; seat cloth (velour?) ages quickly and poorly; clock placement is poor; windshield needs more height; fender flares can pull loose in carwashes, so avoid carwashes
