2003 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Xtracab Rwd SB (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

For a small truck this is really
comfortable to drive and easy to get
into for large people. Your passengers
are comfortable and at ease while
riding in this truck.


Best Features

The dash lights at night are soft and easy to read


Worst Features

Move the clock as it is a safety hazard due to its location. You are unable to read it without moving and diverting your attention from driving. Also, dash is great at night but the white make it look less attractive in the day time.

2003 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Xtracab V6 4WD SB (3.4L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Have the TRD package, stock, except
added a grille guard. Took it up
Horsethief Canyon Trail at Lake Mead
Rec. area last Sat..Kept it in H-4 the
whole time.(Jeez, when do you use L-
4???) Only 'lifted' Rubicon jeeps could
handle this trail, except for my taco.
Larger 4x4's have to stick to civilized
off-roads.


Best Features

Drives like a truck should. If one wants comfort, buy an SUV or American made pickup w/leather seats.


Worst Features

Da' clock, Da' clock, Da' clock, so, wear a wristwatch.

2003 Toyota Tacoma 4dr Double Cab PreRunner V6 Rwd SB (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

my double cab tacoma has
everything i wanted. trd suspension,
premium sound, power everything,
all with the convenience of cloth
seats. i surf, snowboard and love
the outdoors, and this truck, even
without 4wd, is nearly perfect. it
wasn't cheap, but my first truck was a
yellow 1977 toyota that was first
owned by my grandparents and now
my sister and has never needed a
major repair. i think it's worth the
money


Best Features

my truck is white with black flares over the wheels and a trd tag on the back, it looks pretty bad ass


Worst Features

i don't like the clock; suspension is tight on-road, but if it was softer, it would be weak off road

2003 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Xtracab PreRunner V6 Rwd SB (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

After comparing all trucks in this
class the Toyota by far offers the most
for your money. I own a 4-runner with a
3.0 and it has trouble with mountian
roads. This Tacoma powers up the hills
with no problem. Ride and handling is
about the same as other trucks with an
off road package.


Best Features

Power, style, payload, extended cab design, sound system.


Worst Features

Flip open access door to extended cab area, move shifter closer to driver, power to rear flip open windows.

2003 Toyota Tacoma 4dr Double Cab V6 4WD SB (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Traded in my wife's 1998 Tacoma XTra
Cab to make it easier to move the kids
in and out of. While roomier, the
interior build materials seem to be of
lower quality, especially the seats.
The cruise control is over reactive
often dropping two gears and adding 5
MPH on roads where I can maintain speed
without downshifting. Shop others
first. We only bought ours because of
the resale value.


Best Features

Room, Resale Value


Worst Features

Less wind noise, smoother ride, better quality cruise control and interior materials.
