Tacoma - Good Solid Truck
By Hundarion on


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


I purchased this vehicle to do general
type hauling on the weekends for
gardening & home improvement work.
This vehicle is well suited for these
tasks. I appreciate the fine lines on
the body of this truck, especially the
front end. I test drove several other
compact trucks and felt the tacoma
gave the best ride. The truck handles
well with adequate power for a 4
cylinder. I do experience the whistle
in my A/C that some other reviewers
have complained about but no other
complaints. This is the 3rd Toyota
vehicle I have owned and I hope my
Tacoma provides the same reliability
and problem free performance as my
previous two vehicles.

Best Features

Very nice body style on the Tacoma. The automatic transmission is very smooth and far superior to the Saturn SL2 that I owned before I purchased the Tacoma.

Worst Features

The pricing on the Tacoma is higher than comparable vehicles but the truck is barebones. Putting a clock in the truck and upgrading the bench seat cloth would be a good start. Adding some coin storage or small storage area by the center cup holders would help as well.
